2010 Summer Children’s Programs!

Be a Farmer for a Day: “Catch Those Cows!”

Age: 5-10
Date: July 30th, 2010
Time: 2-4 PM
Learn about all the ways that farmers and their families used to make food and do all their farm work by hand in the 1800s-1900s – with no electricity, and no tractors! Children will also learn about “Cow Court”, one place that a lot of Fredericton farmers spent their time! Children will get a tour, a farm-themed snack, and get to make a farm animal craft!

Chocolate Bar War!

Age: 5-10
Date: August 10, 2010
Time: TBA (Coming soon!)
This is going to be one of our most unique programs this summer, all based around the history of the Fredericton chocolate bar wars of 1945! Children will learn about the chocolate bar boycotting done by the Fredericton’s youngest generation when the prices of chocolate bars rose, and will even get to make their own chocolates to take home!
All programs will be $5 per child.
You can register using the form on our website,
yorksunburymuseum.com or call the museum at 455-6041. There is a limited number of spaces so pre-registration is required!
– Parents are encouraged to stay or be nearby in case of emergency, especially if a younger child is enrolled in a program.
-The age groups listed within the programs are suggested ages for the programs.  However, if a younger or older child would like to participate this is not a problem.  There is an age limit on the programs, which is 12 years of age.
