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.
The cost of the programs in the 2019/2020 school year is $35 for classes in School District 72, and $40 for out of district classes.
Education Programs are offered at the Museum Tuesday – Friday. Advance booking is required. Teachers wishing to book a program should contact the School Programmer Wayne Demerse firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-287-3133 ext 34
