Come Play On Our RiverSummer really begins at the Atlantic Salmon Museum when we welcome our first campers of the season back to our Come Play on Our River program. Now in its 17th year, Come Play continues to be a source of fun and learning for children ages 5-12, offering them the chance to forget about the TV and video games for a time while they acquire new skills, new friends and a new appreciation for the natural world around them.

With financial support from both the New Brunswick Wildlife Trust Fund and the Miramichi Salmon Association, and in partnership with our friends at Storeytown Cottages, the Museum is able to offer a series of weekly day camps running from late June/early July to mid-to-late August, each week focusing on a specific age group and skill set. Although activities are customized to match weekly themes, all of our camps include:

  • Casting lessons
  • Trout and salmon fishing
  • Learning to tie flys
  • Canoe Safety
  • Crafts
  • Nature hikes
  • Water Games
  • And a day spent canoeing the River

Each week of camp costs only $125 per child — included in that price are fly tying equipment and materials, fishing gear, canoe rentals, and an official Come Play on Our River T-shirt. Camps run from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday – Thursday, and from 9:00 am – Noon on Friday. All of our Camp personnel are First Aid Certified and all of them work hard to ensure that your child takes away some very happy memories of their time at Come Play.
