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.
