It’s time to start making plans for the summer!

After what feels like forever, the weather is finally starting to turn nice.  Unbelievably school will be over in only a few more weeks, which means it is time to start making plans for summer.  If you are stumped for what to do with the kids this summer, Huronia Museum has the solution.  Send them to our Summer Jam Day Camp.  We have been offering this camp for many years and strive to provide a fun and safe environment in which your children will thrive over the summer months.

Summer Jam Day Camp is running from July 2 to August 31 this year.  We are open to children between the ages of 5 and 12 years of age and while pre-registration is not required it is strongly recommended.  Parents can register with Summer Jam Day Camp by the dayor by the week, as a result we may have days throughout the summer that reach capacity and pre-registering will eliminate unnecessary worry.

Our camp is based on weekly themes with games and activities to correspond.  We will also swim Monday and Thursday at the YMCA as well as taking weekly field trips and having pizza day on Wednesdays.  We will also take advantage of the nice weather and spend a part of each day at Little Lake Park enjoying the playground there.

While we are still working on finalizing our daily activity schedule and confirming our field trips, the list of dates and weekly themes is as follows:

July 2-6:  You Don’t Want to Myth This

July 9-13:  Art Start

July 16-20:  Happy Holidays

July 23-27:How to Make Your Garden Grow

July 30-August 3:  Camp Olympics

August 7-10:  So You Think You Can Cook!

August 13-17:  Cloak and Dagger

August 20-24:  Glorious Games

August 27-31:  Dog Days of Summer 

A more complete daily calendar will be posted soon but if you would like to register your child for camp now you can download our Registration Form fill it out and return it to Huronia Museum to reserve your child`s spot in camp.  Please also read the cancellation policy attached to the registration form.

Our camp runs from 9AM to 5PM, Monday to Friday and the cost is $22 per day for museum members and $24 per day for non members.  We also offer early drop off between 8AM and 9AM and late pick up between 4PM and 5PM.  Each of these options costs an additional $1.

If you have any questions about our camp please feel free to call Gillian at Huronia Museum 705-526-2844.

Second Annual Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt

Well we are trying it again.  Last year Huronia Museum made its first attempt at holding an Easter event.  We came up with something new and unique, putting a twist on a classic.  We excited and planned everything down to the last detail, at least that’s what we thought!

Turns out we completely underestimated the demand for glow in the dark Easter events.  To say that the response was overwhelming would be a huge understatement.  We had nearly triple the expected number of participants and we at a bit of a loss as to how to handle them.  That said, we learned a few valuable lessons and have regrouped older, wiser and with a much better plan.

So please come out and join us for the second annual Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 7 from 1 PM to 3 PM.  Admission is $1 per participant and a non perishable food item for the Salvation Army Food Bank.

For more information please contact the museum at 705-526-2844.
