Summer Day Camps


My Day Camp

Challenge your child’s imagination with a week of fun and learning—in a bilingual environment—at the Canadian Museum of History.


My Day Camp

Stuffed toys, hockey cards, rocks, seashells… kids love collecting all kinds of little treasures.

At this camp, children learn how museums decide what to collect, how they create fascinating exhibitions and how they house and take care of the precious artifacts in a national collection. They’ll meet experts and get exclusive, behind-the-scenes museum access while participating in fun-filled activities.

Working in teams, children will build, restore and preserve an inspiring collection. They’ll also learn to share the stories of interesting objects by organizing their very own exhibition for everyone to see. Is your young collector up to the challenge?

“Excellent organization. All staff were excellent and engaged wonderfully with my child. He felt comfortable and secure.”

“Excellent camp – plan to do it again!”

* Children who will be 6 years of age on August 31, 2014 are eligible to attend the camp. Likewise, children who turn 11 in 2014 are also eligible.
