School Programs

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  or call 250-287-3103, ext 34.

More information on the programs and their curricular links can be found in the program descriptions listed below. Recommended grade levels are included.

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.
