New camps for the school year.

September 24, 2013

Picture1With another summer over we say good bye to all our Summer Jam campers.  It was a busy summer and it just flew by, but there was lots of fun along the way.  Now the kids are back to school doing their best to learn all the new things their teachers have for them, but that doesn’t mean that camp is done until next year, not by a long shot.

Huronia Museum offers P.A. Day camps throughout the school year, as well as camps at Christmas and March Break.  It can be difficult to arrange child care for a day here and there so Huronia Museum is trying to help.  Just like our summer camp, our P.A. Day camps are filled with games, crafts and activities to keep our campers entertained.  In the winter months we are even able to go tobogganing and skating at some of our camps.

We will be holding camps on the following days:

October 11

November 15 & 22

December 20, 23, 27, 30

January 2, 3, 31

March 7, 10-14

June 6

These camps coincide with all elementary professional activity days.  Each camp runs from 9 AM to 5 PM, with pick-up any time after 4 PM.  The cost is $22 per child, per day and they are intended for children ages 5 to 12.  Space in these camps is limited so pre-registration is required to ensure a space for your child.

Details about each camp will be posted on our website in advance.  For more information on these camps you can visit our website at www.huroniamuseum.com or call us at 705-526-2844

It’s time to start thinking about day camp again.

May 6, 2013

Camp OwlWhile it left us doubting for a while, summer is definitely on its way.  Soon school will be out and kids will be looking for something to keep them busy this summer.  When the time comes Huronia Museum’s Summer Jam Day Camp may be just what you are looking for.  We offer a fun and activities filled camp that your kids will enjoy.

This year we will be running from July 2 to August 30, with different themes each week (listed below).  You can sign up for a day or a week, so you can pick and choose when your child attends.  Activities throughout the week are linked to the theme, so they change through out the summer.  Monday and Thursday are swim days, Tuesdays are field trip days, Wednesday is pizza day, and Fridays we visit the library.

Camp hours are 9AM to 4PM and the cost is $22/day for museum members and $24/day for non museum members.  We also offer extended hours so you can drop off as early as 8AM and pick up as late as 5PM.  Each of these extended hour is an additional $1.  Summer Jam is for children ages 5-12, and while pre-registration is not required we do very strongly recommend it.  There are times when the camp is full and we would hate to have to turn anyone away.

Weekly Themes

July 2-5—Time Travel

July 8-12—Holiday Time

July 15-19—Creative Campers

July 22-26—Amazing Race

July 29– August 2—Lab Coat Lunacy
