A wee bit of fun to be had at the Princeton Museum

The Princeton Museum is a pretty cool place to hang out in the summer.

The Princeton Museum held its first summer camp for kids this past week. Mad Scientist Camp was attended by 12 little scientists who were joined by the JAE Summer Reading Program for an afternoon of fun. 24 kids enjoyed themselves!

Two more summer camps will be hosted at the Princeton Museum for kids aged seven to 11.

The three day fun camps run Tuesday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Young Explorers Camp takes place July 23 to 25: Map reading and trail exploration…

Prospectors Camp is August 6 to 8: learn about mining from real geologists and engineers…

Camps cost $65 and campers require a bag lunch, comfortable walking shoes and a hat to provide protection from the sun.

Nut free snacks, sunscreen and drinking water are provided.

To find out more call 250-295-7588 or email: princetonmuseum@gmail.com

Also, don’t miss out on the opportunity to view some fabulous antique toys. Pay a visit to the museum and check out the summer Toy Exhibition.
