CAMP HIGHLIGHTS - July, 2014

July's Museum Adventures Day Camp At The North Lanark Regional Museum!


This year’s camp went out with a splash! Our last day featured water games all afternoon long.

Last week was a fun one at the North Lanark Regional Museum! Every year our museum hosts a week-long day camp in July and in August for kids aged 5 – 10. The camp features a range of themed activities throughout the week. Past favourites include pioneer day, where the kids learn about local pioneer life through games and activities, as well as water day, which is always a hit on a hot sunny day.

This year’s July camp was a great success! We lucked out with some great sunny weather and spent lots of time outdoors. Some of the highlights from this past week include: playing with the giant parachute, making butter by hand, taking a walk to Appleton Bay Park, an epic game of capture the flag, making s’mores in a solar oven, touring the museum’s pioneer log cabin, as well as racing down the slip n’ slide waterslides on water day! The kids and counsellors had lots of fun outside hoola-hooping, making fun crafts, and making new friends.

This year’s councillors, Sarah, Stuart, Ken, Riley and Celia, would like to give a big thanks to all the 15 campers that came out this past week! You guys were a super fun group and we look forward to seeing some familiar faces next year!
