Summer Camp 2021

NOTE: The Thunder Bay Museum is working towards offering our Summer Theme Camps this year.   The Museum is working in consultation with the Thunder Bay District Health Unit to develop safe and fun programming that follows guidelines set out by the Ontario Ministry of Health.  

We are looking at starting camp July 26, 2021 with times of 9:00-1:00.  Drop of times between 9:00 and 9:30 and pick up times between 1:00-1:30.

Each summer the Museum offers seven weeks of exciting themed camps for kids ages 6-12. Our camps are jam-packed with fun crafts, games, drama, dancing, science experiments, scavenger hunts, and more. Participants are able to register for individual days or full weeks – either way, we’re sure they’ll have a super summer at the Thunder Bay Museum!

 Check out our 2021 calendar to get an idea of the variety of themes and daily activity we will be offering.
