The Museum at Campbell River will resume in-person educational programming on September 7, 2021. In accordance with ongoing provincial health orders, masks are required for all participants. We will also continue to offer digital programs for classes unable to attend in-person programs at this time. Our available education programs will expand throughout 2021-2022.
Programs for Grades K to 12
The Museum at Campbell River offers a variety of education 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 Museum staff and trained volunteer Docents.
Fees are $80 per class for most education programs. Schools within SD72 receive a subsidized discount of $20 per class.
In-person education programs are available Tuesday to Friday, while digital programs are available Mondays. Advanced booking is required. To request a program, please use our new online booking request form.
