The Georgina Pioneer Village & Archives offers Summer Camps for children ages 7-12. These camps inform children about the chores, hobbies and lifestyles of people in the nineteenth century through a series of hands-on craft and heritage demonstrations. Skills relevant to early settlement life are taught and the camps endeavour to instill a sense of pride in our heritage and knowledge of early Canadian lifestyles. Before & After Care is available for all camp dates. Bussing is available for Summer Camps.
Heritage Quest Summer Camp
Educational Programs (Starting Fall 2022)
The Pioneer Village & Archives is a dynamic location for hands-on, interactive school programs for Grade 3 students. Focusing on the daily lives of early settlers, these programs are multi-sensory and curriculum-related.
During a visit to the Pioneer Village, students will take part in various demonstrations and activities that depict the chores, jobs, and pastimes of nineteenth-century settlers. Some of the demonstrations and activities to choose from include butter making, candle making and old-time laundry.
All programs can be modified to suit your specific classroom instruction, and are offered in short-day (2 hours or less) half-day (2-4 hours) or full-day (4+ hours) durations.
If you wish to provide your students with an engaging and informative introduction to Canada's history of early settlement, please contact the Pioneer Village by email at firstname.lastname@example.org today for further information.
Annual Rise to Rebellion: an Interactive Re-creation of the 1837 Rebellion of Upper Canada
Scheduled every year on the Thursday and Friday before the Mother's Day weekend in May, the Georgina Pioneer Village & Archives hosts an annual Education Days for Rise to Rebellion: an Interactive Re-creation of the 1837 Rebellion of Upper Canada. Unlike any other education program throughout the Greater Toronto Area, students will have a chance not only to learn about the issues involved in the struggle for responsible government from costumed personalities, but to actually participate in an interactive re-creation of this celebrated episode of Canadian history.
