The History of Fun; Playing around with Heritage Day Camp

11751346_10152990311127155_359441723_nThe Fredericton Region Museum is offering a playful history day camp during the week of July 10th to 14th.  What did people do for fun? What games did they play? What did they create? Learn about the history of arts, crafts, and recreation through fun, hands-on activities. Activities will include visits to historical and cultural sites (such as art galleries and museums), special guests, and historically significant games and crafts. Join us and learn about toys and games from the past while you play with them!

The museum operates six different weeks of summer day camps offering children 8 to 11 years of age an opportunity to directly explore some of Fredericton’s history and discover links to the City’s past.  Our camps have a maximum of 10 Campers each week, allowing the children to fully participate and enjoy the week in their own way while exploring and learning about our past in a fun and inclusive manner.  Children take daily trips to nearby sites and visit heritage gems that make Fredericton a wonderful place to live.  With lots of time for creativity, campers play traditional and contemporary games, construct crafts, explore our heritage, make lasting friendships and learn about our past in a unique way!

This camp starts next week but we still have a few spots open.  The registration fee is $140 and includes a museum t-shirt, materials and activities.
