Day Camps

As an alternative to the Visiting Cousins & Family Kin programs, Kings Landing offers hands-on, age-appropriate ways to experience 19th century, daily life along the Saint John River in the form of day camps. From feeding animals and working in the trade shops, to domestic work like butter making and wool processing; these camps provide a wholesome learning environment for all ages.

Registration for 2024 is now OPEN on Eventbrite! Click below to register.

Day Camps ~ Eventbrite ~ Camps de Jour

2024 Program

Spend a day in the 19th century during Kings Landing’s day camps for kids! Children attending camps will get a taste of life on a farm in the 19th century. They can help look after gardens, attend school, play games, and enjoy more traditional fun. Each day will wrap up with a horse and wagon ride to return to modern life.

Camps run from 10 am to 4:15 pm on Monday to Friday from July 8 to August 23.  Children ages 5 to 12 may attend 1-5 days of camp per week and can return for multiple weeks. Drop off is at 10 am and pick up is at 4:15 pm at Kings Landing’s Welcome Centre. Day camps require a minimum of 3 children to run with a maximum of 16 participants.

Cost: $80 per day ($84.75 with Eventbrite fees) or $375 per week ($394.51 with Eventbrite fees). This includes costume rental, snacks, and lunch in the Village.

Attire: Kings Landing will provide costumes for children attending camp, but children must come with their own closed-toe shoes or boots, preferably black or brown. They will really look the part! Sizing details are not required upon registration for campers as a range of costumes will be available to try on.

Schedule: Each day of camp starts with drop-off at the Welcome Centre by 10 am and no earlier than 9:45 am. Once all children have arrived, the group will head to the Learning Centre to change into their costumes. There are modern washroom facilities inside for changing. All personal items will stay at the Learning Centre, which is kept locked for the day.

Once all children are dressed in their 19th century clothing, they will head into the Village for their daily schedules. This includes a lunch at a select home. After a snack at the Long House, children will take a horse and wagon ride back to the Learning Centre where they will change back into their modern clothes and back to the Welcome Centre for pick-up at 4:15 pm.
