Well parents, it is time to get into your Deloreans and drive your kids into the past.

The Golden and District Museum is pleased to announce the return of our History Camp for kids from ages 6-12.

Campers will enjoy activities like ice cream making, panning for gold, a scavenger hunt, and learning about and creating their own silent film that will be viewed at the Golden Cinema.

There will be some activities off of the museum grounds.

These activities, however, will be within a few blocks of the museum and all activities will take place on the museum side of the bridge.

The Golden Museum believes that all children, regardless of family income, should have a chance to experience camp.

We are pleased to announce that this year we are making 50 percent of our camp spots available to campers between the ages of 6 and 12, whose family income is limited. If you think you might qualify for this program please drop by and fill out an application.

The deadline for applications for this program is June 27. Spots are first come and fill up fast, so please do not wait till the last minute!

This year the summer camp runs for six weeks in July and August. Camp weeks start on July 9, July 16, July 23, July 30, August 13, and August 20.

Camp days run from 10-4. Registration has begun.

In order to reserve your spot, please drop by the Golden and District Museum or call us at 250-344-5169.
