In accordance with ongoing provincial health orders, masks are no longer required for Museum visitors. We will continue to offer digital programs for groups unable to attend in-person programs at this time. Our available educational programs will expand throughout the 2022-2023 school year.
Programs for Grades K to 12
The Museum at Campbell River offers a variety of educational programs for grades K to 12 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, all our programs include hands-on activities. Programs are delivered by the Education Programmer with the assistance of trained volunteer Docents.
Fees for the 2022-2023 school year are:
- Guided educational program at the Museum – $100
- Guided digital program on Zoom – $75
- Unguided Museum visit – $60
Educational programs are available Tuesdays to Fridays. Advanced booking is required. To request a guided program or an unguided visit, please use our online booking request form.
