Maritime Museum of B.C. offers day camps

Museum opens its doors to Nautical Day camps for children aged five to nine, beginning Monday

The Maritime Museum of B.C. is the latest organization to offer extended summer camps.

Beginning Monday (Sept. 15), the museum opens its doors to Nautical Day camps for children aged five to nine.

“We recognize this is a difficult time for families struggling to find childcare during the teachers’ strike,” said Jon Irwin, the museum’s executive director.

“We feel it’s important to support the needs of families in our community and do what we can to alleviate some of the strain families are under during this time.”

Maritime museum programmers will provide a hands-on venue for kids to get up close and personal with the province’s history. Camp activities are directly linked to the B.C. social studies and science curricula.

Each camp is $175 with a maximum of 10 children per camp. Camp will run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

For more information, please call 250-385-4222 or email khumble@mmbc.bc.ca.
