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 or call us at 705-526-2844

March Break Day Camp

March 24, 2009

We are in recovery mode from a tiring but thoroughly satisfying week of camp here at Huronia Museum.  The only blight on an otherwise great week was the fact that the weather was so beautiful and warm and the snow  melted.  Yes, it is true.  I was just about the only person in the province, perhaps the whole country excluding whistler, who wanted the snow to fall.  Why?  We usually toboggan with our camp kids.  There is a great hill right next to the Museum and the khpim1438ids always have fun tobogganing.

Aside from that we had a great time.  We skated everyday.  I think skate tying should be an Olympic sport because I would win a gold medal.  Figure skates, hockey skates or the ones with the buckles, I can tie them all. 


We also didhpim1424 crafts and played games.   We made oragami frogs.  WE had an egg hunt.  Exploring the museum became one of the most asked for free time activities of the entire week.  We even found a fun activity to replace tobogganing.  Every day of camp ended with multiple games of hide and seek in the village.  I would have to say that it was a very successful week.  We had a number of return campers joined us, but we also made quite a few new friends who I hope will be joining us this summer  and in years to come.

Now that March Break is finished and the craft supplies are put away it is time to start putting together plans for our Summer Jam Day Camp.  So stay tuned for more information on that and the many other activities here in the Pod.

March Break Camp

February 27, 2009

tobogMarch Break is around the corner and we are offering an alternative to sitting at home.  We attempting to fight off the winter blahs by celebrating spring with games and activities designed  to take our mnds off the cold and snow.  However, since not everything about winter is bad, as an added bonus we will also be tobogganing each day and going public skating.

This camp also gives you the option of registering for one or two days rather than the whole week.  Space is limited so we like to encourage people to register early!
