Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery is offering in-person and virtual summer camps for kids.
Both options are available from July 5 to Aug. 13.
Different activities will be presented to three age groups, complete with guest artists, virtual studio tours, outdoor games, trips to the nearby splash park, museum activities, art projects and more.
Registrations are now open for ages 6-8 and ages 9-12 for in-person camps with weekly themes, running from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“These week-long summer camps offer your child a fun way to meet new friends and experience hands-on activities in a museum/ gallery setting while maintaining safe social distancing,” states a release from the museum.
Students will create artworks, learn to explore artifacts, experience a log school house, and more – all within COVID-19 protocols. (In the event in-person are cancelled, due to COVID-19 restrictions, they will move to an online format.)
For ages 13-17, a virtual camp will be held with weekly themes, running from 1-4 p.m. Single-day attendance options are available.
Developed for teens, these virtual camps will offer icebreaker games, the exploration of museum artifacts, history fun facts, and gallery tours. By logging into the museum virtually, participants can create guided art projects with a special guest artist each week.
In order to limit physical interaction, all camp registration forms must be completed and returned to the museum a minimum of three business days prior to the camp start date. Registration forms can be accessed on the ‘Summer Camps’ page on the museum’s website and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
