What to do with the kids this Christmas?

Everyone loves the holidays.  Getting a little time off work and school is great, but mom and dad don’t usually get as much time off as the kids.  Then the question becomes, what to do with the kids this Christmas?

Huronia Museum has the answer.  We are running New Years camp from January 3 to 6.  We will spend our days playing games, doing crafts, going public skating and getting as much fresh air as we can.  If mother nature cooperates we may even go tobogganing.  It is a chance for kids to get out of the house and keep busy, spend time with old friends and maybe make some new ones.  Our week of fun with conclude with a camp New Years Party!

This camp will run each day from 9 am to 5 pm for children ages 5-12.  You can sign up for all 4 days or just pick the ones you need.  The cost is $22 per day and pre-registration is strongly recommended as we have a limited number of spaces available.  Just fill out the PA Day Registration Form and return it to the museum.

Oral History Project – Huronia Museum Show

In a joint project between Huronia Museum, Askennonia and Midland Secondary School, students are given the opportunity to interview local people who have interesting personal stories about the history of Midland and the surrounding area.

The resulting interviews were recorded and shown at a special luncheon at the North Simcoe Sports and Recreation Centre on May 31st, 2011.  More interviews (and luncheons) will be held in the coming months.

New Educational Program at Huronia Museum

This new educational program is great for any grade, and is connected to the current Ontario Curriculum for Physical Education, Drama, Dance, and History. Dance Dance Evolution allows students to learn about the history of Canada by exploring 5 different styles of dance. Students will learn to do Aboriginal Dance, Victorian Ballroom Dance, the Charleston, the Twist, and Hip Hop. For each dance taught, students will learn about the corresponding time period, and how the art of dance is influenced by culture and vice versa. Look for the article on this program in an upcoming Midland Free Press.
