Historic Children’s and Junior Interpreter Program

During July and August, the Friends of the Ukrainian Village Society (FOUVS) offer weeklong day-camps for children and youth – the Historic Children’s Program (HCP) for ages 6 to 11, and the Junior Interpreter’s Program (JIP) for ages 12 to 16. Dressed in historic costumes, children and youth time travel to the 1920’s and participate in a week of activities that explore early immigrant and homestead life!


The Historic Children’s Program provides children the opportunity to develop their imagination and creativity while taking part in historic activities at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village (UCHV). Through active play and hard work, they explore the lives of early Ukrainian-Canadian children who were settlers and farmers. They will make themselves at home in the kitchens of early Ukrainian-Canadian farmers and make homemade cookies, do farm chores with animals, and work in the gardens. They will also play old-time games, attend a country school, make crafts, and have the opportunity to explore nature.


Junior Interpreters will have the opportunity to re-enact the lives of pioneer youth by participating in many of the day-to-day activities associated with youth in historic farmsteads and buildings, such as helping with cooking, gardening, and blacksmithing. Working along-side UCHV interpreters will learn what it takes to bring history to life and  have the chance to go behind the scenes of the museum to learn how a historic site functions.


Bussing will not be provided to or from the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village.

Optional before and after camp childcare may be provided, by request, for an additional $50 per week, per child.
