History Hunters Day Camp

Program runs Monday through Friday 9:30am - 4:00pm

Ages 6 - 8

Step into the shoes of a pioneer child and uncover the mystery of 1910 history at Heritage Park! In our History Hunters day camp program, participants discover the past through activities, games, and crafts that children their own age may have taken part in over 100 years ago.

Campers dress in historical costume and become part of our lively historical village for one week; one they will surely remember forever! Some of the best parts of becoming a History Hunter are riding the Park’s thundering steam train and experiencing an old-fashioned fair full of games and laughter.

  • Collect eggs at the Burnside Ranch
  • Make old-fashioned butter
  • Ride the authentic steam train
  • Create an old-fashioned toy at Atlas Lumber
  • Attend class in the Weedon one-room schoolhouse
  • Meet up with Time Travellers camp for lunch and group activities


The weekly History Hunters camp has a fee of $280.00
Pre-care is available from 8:30am - 9:30am, through pre-registration ($30/week per participant).

How to Register

Registration information will be available in January 2019.


Participants will be loaned historically appropriate costumes. Additional information will be forwarded once registration is confirmed.  $50 will be charged if the loaned costume is not returned in good condition on the final day.


Footwear is the responsibility of the parent or guardian. If available, preferred footwear for boys and girls includes lace-up leather shoes or boots in brown or black leather, or a plain leather slip-on shoe. No sandals, sneakers or flip-flops please.

Lunches and snacks

Participants are required to bring their own nutritious lunch and snacks each day. Access to a microwave or refrigerator is not available. Additional information will be forwarded once registration is confirmed. Due to potential allergies, peanuts or peanut products are not permitted.

Medical concerns/allergies

For the safety of your child, we ask that you please advise Heritage Park of any medical conditions your child may have at the time of registration. This includes allergies to dust, dander, animals, etc., as participants may be taking a horse-drawn wagon ride and will be exposed to animals.

Informed consent

An informed consent form will be included in your registration package. This must be completed, signed and returned to Heritage Park a minimum of two weeks before camp starts.

Withdrawals and transfers

A $100 administration fee will be retained, for any camper who withdraws three weeks or less before the start of their camp program. Transfers are permitted up to one week before the start of camp, and are subject to availability. No refunds or transfers will be permitted once the camp has begun. Heritage Park requires a minimum of seven participants per camp. In the event that a camp does not fill to minimum requirements, Heritage Park reserves the right to cancel the camp. In such cases, fees will be refunded in full to the camp registrants.
