Summer camp at Wilson MacDonald Memorial School Museum celebrates a year of holidays in one week

The Wilson MacDonald Memorial School Museum is offering children a week of imagination and inspiration in a country setting at Haldimand County’s original one-room schoolhouse museum with Camp Discovery Days: Home for the Holidays.

For children aged 5-12, Home for the Holidays runs July 18-22 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, with the option of an extra hour of care before and/or after the camp day. Camp fees are $163.25 per child per week and include all supplies. Extended care is an additional $5.25 each from 8-9 a.m. or 4-5 p.m. Registration can be completed online or in-person at the Haldimand County Administration Building, 53 Thorburn Street South, Cayuga.

Throughout the week, museum staff will work with campers to celebrate a year of holidays including Thanksgiving, Halloween, Remembrance Day, Christmas/New Year, Valentine’s Day and Easter. Campers will create one-of-a-kind arts and crafts for each holiday using woodworking, painting, gardening,   and other techniques. The day will be rounded out with old-fashioned games and activities, in keeping with the traditions of the old schoolhouse.
