Summer Day Camps 2020

Registration Now Open

The Manitoba Museum offers two different summer camps. The Discovery Camp and the Adventure Camp alternate throughout the summer so your kids can enjoy a single week, or two weeks in a row! Summer camps include a variety of activities including hands-on science demos and take-home crafts, time aboard the Nonsuch, and visits to our blockbuster Ultimate Dinosaurs exhibition.

WEEK 1 – Discovery Camp

Discover our community, our planet, and beyond through science and history! Become a junior paleontologist and learn how to use fossils as evidence in our new Ultimate Dinosaurs exhibit. Travel back 100 years to learn about the people and events that have shaped our city. Look closely in our own backyards to discover all the weird and wonderful things that live in Manitoba, and then venture across the ocean on board the Nonsuch, and into outer space to discover the unknown. Find out how scientists make magic happen!

Day 1 – Junior Paleontologists – How do we know about dinosaurs? Discover the world of fossils.
