What is Summer Seekers? Summer Seekers is an at-home weekly program for kids aged 4-11 where Museum staff encourage you to explore how people lived and played in Goulbourn 150 years ago. Every other Monday, join us for a new set of activities, from games to food to crafts! You’ll have the chance to earn prizes while you learn some cool new skills! You can find the modules here:

What are Badges and how do they work?
The Summer Seekers digital badges will help you track your accomplishments as you go and give you the chance to earn prizes!

Each week, you can earn badges by completing certain activities or challenges! When you complete a challenge, simply fill out this form to request your badge. The Museum will deliver all badges for the week by email every Friday. You can download badges to your computer or, if you create an account on Badgr, store them in a personal “digital backpack”. The final day to submit for badges is Monday, September 6.

For every five badges earned, you will receive a prize in the mail! The Museum will contact you when you become eligible for this offer, available to any residents of Canada.

*Keep an eye out for take-home kits available throughout the summer.* 

Share your photos!

The Museum’s 2020 modules are still up and running, and you can still earn badges from them! If you haven’t completed them, give them a try, or revisit your favourite activities from last year. 

Museum staff can’t wait to have some fun with you!
