Here are five reasons why museum camps are the perfect pick.
Fight the summertime slide into
lazy brain mode. You don’t want your kids to lose any of the gains they made
during the school year. Help them prep for a successful return to school by
keeping their brains active with hands-on, minds-on activities. They’ll have so
much fun they won’t even realize they are learning.
Your kid will feel like a rock star.
Doors normally locked to the public will be opened up to your child as they go
on behind-the-scenes tours. Experts who are passionate about their subject areas,
whether insects or archeology, will share their enthusiasm, sparking curiosity
and maybe even a life-long fascination.
Your kid won’t get bored with lots
of different activities, scheduled all with their needs and interests in mind. Museum
gallery tours, behind-the-scenes adventures, field trips, art-making,
storytelling and more. Whatever the activity or event, you can be assured it
was designed to be as FUN as possible!
Make family dinners more
interesting as your kids entertain you with tales of museum exploration and
fantastic moments. Never again be met with a blank stare when asking your children
what they did today.
Summertime enrichment isn’t just
for kids. Adults can choose to use their free time between drop-off and pick up
to explore the museum and focus on what they want to see without any
The Royal BC Museum still has a few spots left in our summer
