With 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:
November 15 & 22
December 20, 23, 27, 30
January 2, 3, 31
March 7, 10-14
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

As many people already know, every year Huronia Museum does fundraising within the community to provide funds for our Deserving Kids program. This program pays for free camp spaces for children in the community who might not otherwise have to opportunity to attend a summer camp. We reserve 2 spaces each week and work with local children’s organizations to fill them. It has been a fantastic arrangement for,well at least the last decade. I don’t remember a time when we didn’t offer this program.
We are all proud to be able to offer this to the community and plan to continue long into the future, but that isn’t possible without the generous support of museum and community members. This year we are still a little short on our fundraising efforts and are asking people to please support this worthwhile initiative. You can make a small donation of $20, which covers the cost of 1 day of camp or as much as $100 to cover the cost of an entire week of camp for a child. Anything that you can afford to give will be much appreciated by both the museum and the children who come to camp.
If you would like to make a donation just download our Deserving Kids form and return it to the museum, either in person or by mail. Any support you are able to give is wonderful and will be put to very good use. Thank you.
If you are a parent please note that Huronia Museum is in no way involved in the selection process for the Deserving Kids. We simply fundraise and provide the space. We never pick the children or recommend the children. That is left to the organizations we work with.
