I have a great Ottawa summer day camp idea for you!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Fishbowl patrons

The Canadian Museum of Nature has an enduringly happy history with Ottawa families, and here at the Fishbowl as a longtime patron too.

I’m VERY pleased to share a great idea for your child’s next summer camp experience. Did you know the Museum of Nature offers some really interesting summer camps? There is HUGE kid appeal here for kids 6-14.

There are four themes from which to choose: Arctic, Bioluminescence, Canada’s Creatures, and Dinosaurs & Fossils. Each day camp has lots of themed-activities, hands-on learning, and special gallery exploration (including some behind-the-scenes stuff!).

I think the Museum of Nature is a wonderful day camp destination, especially for first-time campers, don’t you? It’s so nice to be able to send them kids to a familiar place where you know they’ll have a great time.

Interested? Registration opened this week, so don’t think about it too long. :) You can read more about these day camps on the Museum of Nature website.

Busing (bussing?) is not so great to this museum. I was excited about the camp at the History (Civ) museum until I realized they didn’t offer it for 12+ yr olds. Any more great finds? :)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (15) and Sarah (13). I am the editor of the Kitchissippi Times, Capital Parent Newspaper, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.

If you'd like to contact me, please use this form. If you're so inclined, you can read more about me here. Thank you for visiting!

  • My latest post at the MediaSmarts website is about passwords. Is this something you've talked about with your kids? Given the proliferation of devices in households (often one per person now) it might be an important topic for discussion. How have you handled passwords in your household?
