Summer Camps 2012
Bringing the country to kids in the city
There are very few camp spaces left. Please contact the reservation office at 613-991-3053 to verify availability prior to booking.
This year we have faced serious technical difficulties due to a higher than anticipated demand for summer camp registration and the introduction of a new online system. We are extremely aware of the hardship experienced by clients, we sincerely regret this situation and apologize for the inconveniences.

In a working farm setting, children encounter many of the farm animals they’ve heard about in nursery rhymes and stories. Through music, crafts, co-operative games, and even ice cream making, campers explore every nook and cranny of the Museum’s barns, exhibitions, and gardens!
Fun at the Farm
Kids discover what makes farming fun. By “adopting” a cow for a week and being the “Mother Hen” for newly hatched chicks, campers learn what it means to care for animals. Nature studies, crafts, games and more, fill your child’s days with fresh air and fun!
Campers get hands-on experience as they brush, feed, and clean rabbits, help to feed the sheep, and tend their own garden. Campers also have fun making ice cream and playing water games!
Perfect for “farmers-in-the-making” who live in the city. Here’s a chance for youth to take part in a real, working farm! Campers “adopt” a calf, feed and groom it, muck out the stalls, and learn more about the agriculture industry.

Due to limited space, campers may register for one camp session only.
Children must be the required age by the start date of the camp for which they are registered. No exceptions are allowed.
