Our very popular summer camp for children ages 6-12 highlights the importance of our beautiful Miramichi River and all it has to offer. With financial support from the Wildlife Trust Fund of New Brunswick, the Museum is able to offer a series of weekly day camps running from late June to mid-August, each focusing on a specific age group and skill set. Although activities are customized to match weekly themes, all of our camps include:
Learning to cast ♦ Trout and salmon fishing ♦ Learning to tie flys
Canoe Safety ♦ Crafts ♦ Nature hikes
And, on the last day of camp, water games!
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 8:30 am to 3:00 pm Monday – Thursday and from 8:30 am – Noon on Friday with the exception of L’il Tykes (ages 6-7) who have a slightly shorter day (9:00 am – 2:30 pm). 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 camp.
