School Programs

In accordance with ongoing provincial health orders, masks are no longer required for Museum visitors.  We will continue to offer digital First Nations of Northern Vancouver Island programs for groups unable to visit the Museum in-person.

Programs for Grades K to 12

The Museum at Campbell River offers a variety of educational programs for grades K to 12 that are intended to complement and enrich specific areas of the school curriculum.  The content of these programs reflects our extensive collection of historic and ethnographic artifacts from Northern Vancouver Island.  Working on the premise that children learn best through active participation and personal connection, all our programs include hands-on activities.  Programs are delivered by the Education Programmer with the assistance of trained volunteer Docents.

Fees for the 2022-2023 school year are:

  • Guided educational program at the Museum$100
  • Guided digital program on Zoom$75
  • Unguided Museum visit – $60

Educational programs are available Monday to Friday.  Advanced booking is required.  To request a guided program or an unguided visit, please use our online booking request form.

Museum at Campbell River respectfully acknowledges the Liǧʷiɫdax̌ʷ First Nation, on whose traditional lands we work to preserve, interpret and share the collective human history of North Vancouver Island. The Liǧʷiɫdax̌ʷ First Nation is comprised of the We Wai Kai, Wei Wai Kum and Kwiakah First Nations. Our closest neighbors are the Coast Salish Xwemalhkwu, Klahoose and K’ómoks First Nations.

These nations have close connections to the land where Campbell River is located today.
