2021 Aga Khan Museum On-Site Summer Camps
Honouring Peter George

Date: July 5 to August 20, 2021
Price: On-Site (per week): $300, $270 Friends
(10% sibling discount)

The 2021 Aga Khan Museum Camp welcomes kids back to the Museum for summer fun with friends old and new. Our up-to-date health-and-safety measures include gathering in smaller group sizes, physical distancing, and easy access for washing hands. 

 

This year’s Camp theme is “State of Play.” What goes into making a game? How many games do you know that use a ball? A stick? A rope? A hoop? Find out during a week of fun-filled activities for children ages 6-8 (junior) and 9-12 (senior). Let’s explore the concept of PLAY!

 

Join us at the Aga Khan Museum Summer Camp and discover different forms of play from around the world and through the ages. Using our galleries and the environment as inspiration, Campers will create art, soundscapes, and drama to learn how games bring us together.

 

Summer Camp is also available virtually! Interested? Click here.
