Spring Break Camp: Bizarre Beasts

British Columbia supports an incredible diversity of animals, and some of them are wonderfully weird. This camp will take a look at some of the stranger ones, exploring why they are the way they are. Using the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition as a jumping-off point, campers will even construct their own bizarre beast. The camp will be hands-on in the museum galleries, in the natural history collection and out in nature, while we all embrace our inner weirdness.

Egypt: Time Travel Camp

Great pharaohs like Khufu and Tutankhamun are iconic in our understanding of Ancient Egyptian culture. But what about regular people – did they have a role in building such a powerful society? Of course they did. Each individual played an important part in the foundation of the Egyptian civilization, from constructing the pyramids to farmland maintenance. Join us this summer to travel back in time and discover the ancient world, with the exhibition Egypt: The Time of the Pharaohs as our portal.

Egypt: Thinking Like an Archaeologist Camp

Can you dig it?

BC Archives Workshop

Discovering Historic Buildings - Victoria is filled with interesting old buildings, from the grand and stately to the colourful and quirky. It’s often easy to tell what goes on behind the doors today, but have you ever wondered what stories lie behind some of the older facades? This workshop will explore the tools available to research the structures around us, using photographs, blueprints, fire insurance maps and more. From heritage homes to public spaces, each building has a much deeper history than its bricks and mortar.
