Looking for something for the kids to do this summer?
Bring them to the Mission Museum where they can discover the joy of history.The Mission Museum is hosting its annual Kids’ Club program on Fridays throughout July and August.
This year, kids can explore the famous Mission Soapbox Derby in Derby or Bust; churn butter like the pioneers of Mission in Little House on the Flats; learn the skills of hand and machine sewing in Quilting Bee; recreate the story of the infamous Billy Miner and the Great Train Robbery in Hands Up; write a letter with quill and ink, and seal it with wax in Signed, Sealed & Delivered; make Medicine pouches and ceremonial talking sticks in People of the River; experience diverse cultures in Multicultural Mission; and have some old-fashioned fun with Pioneer Games like hopscotch, kick the can and potato-sack racing.
Children aged six to 10 are welcome to join us at the Museum every Friday from 1 to 3 p.m. for a two -hour session of activities, crafts and stories while exploring Mission’s history.
Parents are not required to stay. The fee is $8 per child per session or $60 for all eight weeks. If you register for the whole summer, your child will also receive a free Kids Club T-shirt. Pre-registration and pre-payment are preferred. Private group bookings are also available on alternate days.
