School Programs

The Museum is currently reviewing its slate of education programs in order to adjust to changing circumstances. This will include adapting programs to virtual and other safe socially-distant delivery methods, and ensuring we are able to better support home learners. If you are interested in booking a program please contact Education Program Manager Ellie M. to discuss options and logistics so we can best cater our programs to your unique circumstances.


As a part of our Covid-19 response the Museum has endeavored to increase its virtual presence. This has included uploading existing, and creating new, documentaries and short videos about our local history and artifact collection to our You Tube Channel. Please see the links below to find relevant videos organized by subject matter, and their accompanying worksheets

Programs for Grades K to 12

The Museum at Campbell River offers a variety of education programs that are intended to complement and enrich specific areas of the school curriculum.  The content of these programs reflects the Museum’s extensive collection of historic and ethnographic artifacts from Northern Vancouver Island.  Working on the premise that children learn and remember through personal involvement, each of our programs is participatory and includes hands on activities.  Guided programs are presented with Museum staff and trained volunteers called docents.

Education Programs are offered at the Museum Tuesday – Friday. Advance booking is required. Teachers wishing to book a program should contact Ellie M. at  school.programs@crmuseum.ca  or call 250-287-3103.

For Program Descriptions and PLOs, check each program link below. Recommended grade levels are listed, however programs are customizable so contact us to discuss options for these programs at other grade levels.

Historic Boat Tours

The Museum at Campbell River will once again offer its summer historic boat tours in partnership with Discovery Marine Safaris.  Each trip explores the history of the region from the comfort of a 30-passenger boat that includes both indoor and outdoor seating areas, and an on board washroom.  As well as an experienced Captain, there is an on board naturalist who is constantly on the lookout for wildlife to point out, and a Museum Guide to share historic points of interest.
