Summer camp is back!  Join us for an engaging blend of arts and crafts, games, outdoor play, and a variety of ‘Day in the Life’ activities. Our dedicated staff will do all they can to make this summer camp fun, safe, and memorable.

The Norfolk County Heritage & Culture Department is offering both in-person and virtual programming for Summer 2021. 

Virtual programs are open to children ages 6-11. Each week we offer two live virtual programs, taking place on Monday and Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  Each camp will include a kit with supplies for the program.  The cost per child is $15 per camp.  Internet access required.

While virtual programming registration is now open, information about in-person museum programming will be released in the coming weeks. Residents are encouraged to check this page and follow Norfolk museums on social media for the most up-to-date information.  

Residents can also sign up for the monthly Heritage & Culture e-newsletter to receive updates on museum programming: https://portdovermuseum.ca/mailing-list/
