Professional Activity Day Camps at Huronia Museum
Huronia Museum offers P.A. Day camps throughout the school year, as well as camps at Christmas and March Break. It can be difficult to arrange child care for a day here and there so Huronia Museum is trying to help. Just like our summer camp, our P.A. Day camps are filled with games, crafts and activities to keep our campers entertained. In the winter months we are even able to go tobogganing and skating at some of our camps.
We will be holding camps on the following days:
January 2, 3, 31
March 7, 10-14
These camps coincide with all elementary professional activity days. Each camp runs from 9 AM to 5 PM, with pick-up any time after 4 PM. The cost is $22 per child, per day and they are intended for children ages 5 to 12. Space in these camps is limited so pre-registration is required to ensure a space for your child.
Details about each camp will be posted on our website in advance. For more information on these camps you can visit our website at www.huroniamuseum.com or call us at 705-526-2844.
