Camp at the Museum!

Welcome to Camp! The Wellington County Museum and Archives offers both PD Day Camp and Summer Camp that encourages campers to learn while having fun building crafts, exploring experiments, and playing games.

Camp Information

The Wellington County Museum and Archives offers pre-registration programmes throughout the school year and summer months. The PD Day Camp days are based on the Upper Grand District School Board calendar. We hold Summer Day Camp for 6 weeks throughout July and August. 

All camp programming is designed and offered for children ages 6 to 10. Regular programming occurs from 9:00-4:00pm. Drop-off is from 8:30-9:00am and pick-up is from 4:00-4:30pm (early drop-off and late pick-up are available)

Camp registration is based on a first come, first served basis. Registration cannot be confirmed until after a registration form is completed and payment is received.
