Collingwood Museum staff are excited to announce the return of their popular children’s summer programs! Throughout July and August, children ages 6 – 12 will have the opportunity to travel the world, jump through time, and get up close and personal with nature without leaving Collingwood.

Museum programs run in convenient three-hour sessions between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., Monday to Thursday, throughout the summer months. At $12 per program, you can’t go wrong! Current museum members receive the reduced enrollment fee of $10 per program.

Each week offers an exciting theme of connected programs that include outdoor play, crafts, and history. In Legendary Tales, we're bringing stories alive by exploring the wonderous world of legends and myths. In Imagination Station, participants will let their creativity shine while creating masterpieces and memorable performances. Participants are the players in Fun and Games as we explore games, new and old, from around the globe. In Heroes of History, participants become their own hero, as well as recognizing the heroes within our community. Other weekly themes include Kids’ Garden, Time Warp, Breaking News, and Big Ideas.

With 31 different programs to choose from, there is something for everyone! Each program incorporates unique hands-on crafts, interactive group-based games, and storytelling to encourage participants to get excited about history and the world around them. Museum programs are also a great opportunity for participants to meet and make new friends.

Sign-up for one program, an entire week, or the whole summer. It's completely up to you!
