Day Camp Groups

Come out to Grey Roots for a day camp experience that is both exciting and educational! Learn about the lifestyle of Aboriginal people who would have lived in a Wigwam; grind grain and carry water with a yoke like a real pioneer with other hands-on activities at most Moreston Village buildings. Enjoy a half-day guided program designed to make learning fun!

Bookings must be made at least 48 hours prior to your visit to ensure an interpreter is available to lead your group. Please call as soon as you have selected a date to avoid disappointment. Having a second date is recommended. To book your tour please phone 519-376-3690 x6128, or programs@greyroots.com

Supervisor to Child Ratios

One day camp supervisor per 6 children. We expect the supervisors to help supervise the children in any activities or crafts that may be a part of the program.

Rates

The cost is $5.00 plus HST per child if booked in advance, or $75.00 for the group, if it contains fewer than 15 children. Otherwise, your group may explore independently at $3.50 plus HST per child, if booked in advance. A tour group without a reservation is also welcome to tour independently at $5.00 plus HST per child. One day camp supervisor for every six participants are admitted free of charge. To ensure that your group gets the most out of their visit we strongly encourage a maximum of 40 children.

How do we pay for our visit?

Fees may be paid prior to your visit or upon arrival. We accept cash, cheque, VISA, MasterCard, or debit. Arrangements can be made to have your visit invoiced as well.

Time of Programs

Day camp programming is offered during regular camp hours Monday to Friday in morning and afternoon sessions. These times are flexible to meet your needs.

Preparation

We strongly recommend that you prepare your group of children for the visit beforehand. Talk about proper behaviour in a museum and share with them what they will be seeing when they arrive at Grey Roots and Moreston Heritage Village. If you require assistance or more information please let us know.
