THEMUSEUM Virtual Camps

THEMUSEUM is offering our BBBBSWR families free spots in their virtual camps. Spaces are limited and will be given out on a first come first serve basis.

Virtual Day Camp: Ages 5 – 9

THEMUSEUM’s Virtual Day Camp gives children the opportunity for hands on learning about a range of topics. Campers will learn through group discussions, demonstrations by our trained Camp Leaders, exploration of our exhibitions and by creating artwork inspired by the day’s content.

Underground Studio MakerSpace – Ages 9 – 14

THEMUSEUM’s Underground Studio MakerSpace opened in 2016 as a place for people of all ages to explore making, tinkering and hands-on learning. The Underground Studio MakerSpace camps are designed to challenge and develop the skill sets of our older campers giving them a chance to learn and experiment with a variety of topics.

If you are interested, please email opportunities.wr@bigbrothersbigsisters.ca specifying your child’s name and what Camp Opportunity you are interested in.
