March Break – MOA Olympics!

MOA olympics

March break is fast approaching. Beginning Monday March 10, and continuing all the way to Friday March 14, children throughout the London region will be off school and looking for things to do.  So, come join us here at the Museum of Ontario Archaeology, where we will once again be hosting our popular March break children’s day-camp for ages 5-9.

This year’s theme is the MOA Olympics; children will explore the origins of these events in ancient Greece, they will play sports and games from around the world, discover the modern day Olympics and their mascots. Everything will come together in a day of friendly competition on Friday.

MOA camps are designed to feature a variety of activities to interest all. The MOA  Olympics  week will be filled with games, crafts and physical activity – and of course some learning throughout!

Children will create their own olive leaf crowns, Olympic medals and mascots; they will play winter sports, such as snowshoeing, a special winter outdoor obstacle course, as well as First Nations traditional sports, such as snowsnake throwing, lacrosse and owl hop.

Children may attend camp for all five days ($135/child), or try camp for single days ($35/day/child).

Spaces are filling up fast! Registration details at www.archaeologymuseum.ca/programs/march-break/
