Summer Jam Day Camp Returns!
Once again Huronia Museum is offering our Summer Jam Day Camp.
This year’s camp will be a little different from the way it has operated in the past, but as we ease our way back to “normal” we want to make sure that we do it the right way, and are providing a safe enviroment for both campers and staff.
Summer Jam will operate for 9 weeks, beginning on July 4, and will offer all the fun activities we did in the past. There will be field trips, swimming, outdoor play, library visits, crafts and more. However, this year registration will be for full weeks only. We are not offering day to day registration at this time.
Camp is for ages 6 – 12. (Due to limited staffing and off-site supervision requirements, we are not able to take any campers under 6 years old this year.)
The cost for camp is $150/week for museum members; $175/week for non-members. (Discount applies for family memberships only).
$2/day for early drop-off, between 8 and 9.
$1/day for late pick-up, between 4 and 4:30. 4:30 is the latest available pick-up time, as this leaves time for cleaning and disinfecting at the end of each day.
July 4 – 8: Sports of All Sorts – BAYSHORE LANES
July 11 – 15: Space is the Place – SPLASH PAD
July 18 – 22: Secret Life of Pets – ELMVALE JUNGLE ZOO (Friday) THIS WEEK IS NOW FULL!
July 25 – 29: Let’s Go Exploring
August 2 – 5: Happy Holidays – BAYSHORE LANES
August 8 – 12: Food for Thought – SPLASH PAD
August 15 – 19: Wind and Sea – DISCOVERY HARBOUR (Wednesday)

August 29 – September 2: Down & Dirty – SPLASH PAD
**Tuesday is field trip day. Wednesday is pizza day. Thursday is swim day. Friday is library day.**

WHAT TO BRING TO CAMP
What to bring to camp
Please ensure that your child brings the following items to camp everyday:
- FACEMASK, there are times and place that may still require them.
- Hat and Sunscreen (Or make sure to apply to children before camp. Camp will NOT supply sunscreen)
- Plenty to Drink (reusable bottles are best, there is always water available for camp)
- A healthy lunch and snacks
What not to bring to camp
The following items should not be brought to camp
- Money—Children are not permitted in the store during camp hours
- Cell Phones, Tablets and Electronic Gaming Devices
- Toys from home are also not encouraged
Our camp wants to encourage children to play, get exercise and interact with one another.
Due to the large number of allergies, and to ensure the safety of all campers, the Huronia Museum Summer Jam Day Camp is peanut free!
What to wear to camp
Because a majority of our time is spent outside and we are often using materials such as paint or food colouring, we ask that your children dress in play friendly clothing.
- T-shirts, long or short sleeved
- Shorts or pants
- Running shoes, sandals, or flip flops
We also recommend putting your child’s name in any clothing they bring, especially outerwear, towels or anything sent as an extra, as they may get mixed up throughout the day.
On field trip days our campers wear matching shirts to identify them and keep them safe. ALL campers are required to wear them.
Visiting the Library
Every Friday morning the camp will be walking down to the Midland Public Library. If your child has his/her own library card, he/she is encouraged to bring it in order to take out any library books.
Swimming at the YMCA
Every Thursday, the camp will be going swimming at the YMCA. Please ensure that your child has the following items packed with him/her:
- Plastic Bag
- Goggles (optional)
Children may also bring their own life jacket to wear if they require one.
