Students can keep learning - even if the ongoing teachers’ dispute keeps them from classes during the first week of September - at the Pioneer Pupils day camp.

‘Pioneer pupils’ get old fashioned education

Should the teachers’ dispute continue into September, students can still go back to school – pioneer-style.

The Langley Centennial Museum and Fort Langley National Historic Site have teamed up to create Pioneer Pupils, a unique learning experience for children affected by the ongoing teacher’s strike.

The educational day camp will be offered to kids in Grades 4 to 6 from Tuesday, September 2 to Friday, September 5. Providing a wide range of activities, the camp is designed to reawaken slumbering summer minds and prepare kids for the inevitable return to classes.

Students will spend the morning at the Langley Centennial Museum and the afternoon at the Fort Langley National Historic Site, while professional instructors provide lessons on history, art, and science.

“September is the time to learn, and students can keep up their studies and have fun while exploring a variety of subjects,” said Township of Langley Arts and Heritage Educator Jeff Chenatte.

Cost for the Pioneer Pupils day camp is $160. Register online at recexpress.ca, barcode 461911, or call the Langley Centennial Museum at 604-532-3536.
