The McCord Museum, dedicated to exploring Canadian history, used to offer summer camps but stopped two years ago because of a lack of funding. However, this year the museum is once again in a financial position to have a summer camp and is offering two new programs.
In Treasure Hunters, kids spend the morning making their own treasures from clay, paint and papier-mâché, followed by a lunch break and time spent playing outdoors. In Zoom in on the Photo, campers will take pictures and develop the negatives in a darkroom during the morning and then have outdoor play in the afternoon.
