It may still be barely above zero in Burlington, but it’s never too early to start thinking about summer camps.
Burlington Museums offers a summer day camp program at the Ireland House Museum and the Joseph Brant Museum.
Camps are designed for children ages 5 to 12 and run daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The cost is $250/week or $55/day (Family Museum members get a 10% discount).
