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 one week in each month of the summer, one in July and one in August.

All camp programming is designed and offered to children from ages of 6 – 10.

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

Upcoming PD Day Camps

The 5 Senses - October 24, 2022

It’s time to test how far our sense can get us! Join us at Camp as we test how heightened our senses are and how well we do when we take one away. Learn through activities and play why some of us cannot see certain colours and how that differs from other animals. How strong is a dog’s nose compared to a cat, and what are taste buds? This and more will be explored in this month’s PD Day Camp!

Winter Adventures - January 27, 2023

Get your winter gear ready, let’s go build a snowman! Explore the museum trails, fly down the toboggining hill and warm up with some hot chocolate. This month Campers will have fun playing winter activities outdoors and create art with ice while discovering what makes the winter season something so exciting.

Buggin' Out! - March 3, 2023

The world is covered in creepy crawlies, and each are important to making our world remain healthy. Bug out this PD Day at the Wellington County Museum! Grab your magnifying glass and explore the wonderful world of bugs with craft, games, and a visit from some insect friends.

Deep Blue Sea - June 2, 2023

Did you know that more than 80% of the Earth’s oceans have never been mapped, explored, or even seen by humans!? What types of things would we discover in the Deep Blue Sea? Learn through play as Campers discover how long a whale can hold their breath, how far noise can travel through water and what makes sharks and orcas such great hunters.
