Morning at the Stewart Museum

Choose one of the following activities:

4-8 years

Little sailors

The children imagine what it was like to cross the ocean to New France. They learn navigation techniques using reproductions of old instruments.

A model of the great sailing ship Jupiter immerses them in life on the sea. Children experience the daily lives of sailors through role playing and overcoming challenges.

Little coureurs des bois

The children discover the story of a coureur des bois. They learn about fur trapping and trading with Aboriginal people through a tale about the mysteries of the forest.

By handling furs and playing an association game, they also learn to recognize the most highly prized animal of the period - the beaver!

9-12 years

Expo 67 - A World of Dreams

Immersive installations in the exhibition Expo 67 - A World of Dreams introduce campers to the technological innovations in the pavilions and the big dreams that became a reality during the 1967 world's fair.

In a workshop, the children create a futuristic model.

Island explorers

Campers hold a rally and explore St. Helen's Island through clues and solving riddles.

They look for a treasure chest and discover the island's heritage.

Soldiers for a day

"Recruited soldiers" dressed in costume are drilled in 18th century military manoeuvres and exercises leading to a mock rank and file battle on St. Helen's Island.

Who will win?
