Virtual Camps

The Norfolk County Heritage & Culture department is pleased to announce that this year’s summer camp program, Museum Summer Adventures 2021, is offering both virtual and in-person programs. 

Children ages 6-11, can join our virtual programs.  Museum Summer Adventures celebrates history and our local landscapes.  Help us solve a History Mystery or take a trip back to the family farm in Barnyard Bash! Pack your bags for a mystery destination in Trip Around the World, or get your armour ready and join us for Medieval Mayhem.

Each week we offer two live virtual programs, taking place on Monday and Thursday, from 10 am to 11:30 am.  Each camp will include a kit with supplies for the program.  The cost per child is $15 per camp.  Internet access required.
