Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, in-person educational programming at the Museum has been suspended until further notice. We are transitioning our education programs to virtual presentations and self-guided activities. At this time, we are offering a limited number of digital education programs, which will expand throughout 2021.
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 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, our programs include hands-on activities. Programs are presented by Museum staff and trained volunteer Docents.
Fees are $50 per class for most education programs. Schools within SD72 receive a subsidized discount of $5 per class.
Education programs are available 9:00am-11:00am, Tuesday to Friday. Advanced booking is required. To request a program, please use our new online booking request form.
For questions regarding education programs, contact our Education Programmer Ellie M. at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-287-3103, ext 34.
