School Programs

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  school.programs@crmuseum.ca  or call 250-287-3133 ext 34

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.
