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.
