Day Camps

As an alternative to the Visiting Cousins & Family Kin programmes, Kings Landing offered hands-on, age-appropriate ways to experience 19th century, daily life along the St. John River in the form of day camps during the 2020 season. From feeding animals and working in the trade shops, to domestic work like baking and fibre processing; these camps provided a wholesome learning environment for all ages while adhering to all recommended COVID-19 protocols.

At this time, these programs are under review for the 2021 season and are subject to COVID-19 health and safety measures. Stay tuned for more details!

It’s a waaaaay back adventure unlike any other: one that will leave you with a new appreciation for the past. Travel through 200 years of history in this fun day camp program. Take part in games, activities and crafts that were popular in the 19th century. The journey will take you as far back as 1820, where you’ll explore the traditions of the settlers along the St. John River. Time Travellers will focus on the 19th-century roles and responsibilities of young teens, including apprenticeship. You can choose to focus on either domestic or trades activities and will create a unique keepsake to take home.
