This August kids can have fun exploring the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village and learning what life was like for early Ukrainian settlers in our province. These fun and exciting summer camps offer a bit of everything with baking, crafts, scavenger hunts, animal interactions and more! Campers aged 6 to 12 can enjoy a full week discovering the village, meeting new friends and enjoying a wide variety of hands-on activities and games.

Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village Summer Camps The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village is located just 25 minutes East of Edmonton. This living history museum is a collection of beautifully restored historic buildings, farmyards and animals in a fun and interactive village setting. You’ll feel like you are stepping right back into history as you meet the friendly interpreters in their historical costumes and make your way through the different homes, churches and stores along the dirt roads.

Children are invited to come be villagers themselves with the choice of 4 different week-long camps in August. During these Historical Children’s Programs, campers can experience life as an early Ukrainian Settler while getting to try the different activities, games, foods and historical costuming from the time period. Days will be a bit of hard work mixed with plenty of fun – just as it was for the early settlers! Campers will be broken into two different age groups with specific programming for 6-8 year olds and 9-12 year olds, plus some exciting group-wide camp activities that bring both groups together.
