Summer Day Camps

SUMMER DAY CAMPS – 2016

Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum is nestled behind beautiful large oak trees at 494 Taché Avenue and, housed within the walls of the original Grey Nuns’ convent, it stands with great pride as Winnipeg’s oldest building. This is where the heritage and stories of our Francophone and Métis communities are safeguarded, showcased and shared with the world! During our summer day camps – aside from the in-depth tours and exploration of each exhibit and theme showcased in Le Musée – your child will be given back-stage access to this Saint-Boniface landmark and can settle in for a week of fun discoveries! Try to find the hidden door to the secret attic, play traditional games, use a compass as your guide during outdoor treasure hunts, stamp your own leather bracelet, cool off at the local splash pad, make your own ice cream or get your hands dirty in our small garden.
