Published February 8, 2023 at 11:56 am

There might still be snow on the ground, but now’s the time to think about signing up your kids for the Museums of Burlington summer day camp program.

The program runs at Ireland House Museum and Joseph Brant Museum with new themes every week.

Camps are designed for children between the ages of 5-12 years old and run daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost is $250/week, or $55/day (Family Museum Members receive 10 per cent discount).

Here is a complete list of the camp themes:

July 10 – 14: Amazing Anatomy – Joseph Brant Museum

Learn about the “stuff” you’re made of at Joseph Brant Museum this week. From muscles and bones, to genes and the five senses, discover more about the intricate building blocks that make up a human body.

July 17 – 21: Biomes and Ecosystems – Joseph Brant Museum

We’re exploring different biomes and ecosystems this week at Joseph Brant Museum. Learn about the five major biomes – aquatic, grassland, forest, desert, and tundra – and the amazing plants, animals, and landscapes in their ecosystems.

July 31 – Aug. 4: Festivals and Fiestas – Joseph Brant Museum

Celebrations are worth celebrating, and we will do just that at Joseph Brant Museum this week. We will learn about different festivals and events from around the world, and create our own.

Aug. 14 – 18: Ireland House School of Witchcraft and Wizardry – Ireland House Museum

Have you received your acceptance letter from the Ireland House School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? Join us to study topics such as herbology, divination, care of magical creatures, and defence against the dark arts!

Aug. 21 – 25: World of Disney – Joseph Brant Museum

Dive into the delightfully magical world of Disney as we revisit old classics and savour new favourites at Joseph Brant Museum this week. Dressing up is highly recommended.

Aug. 28 – Sept. 1: Mystery Week – Ireland House Museum

What is mystery week, you ask? The fun of mystery week is that each day, the theme will be something different. Monday might be an under-the-sea day, Tuesday might be themed around dinosaurs, and so on. The real fun of mystery week is that your kids won’t know the theme of each day until it comes around.
