Whether it’s for Guides, Scouts, Cadets or community youth groups, Admiralty House has the perfect activity. Our activities, coupled with a tour of the museum are guaranteed to educate and entertain. Here are the activities that are available and their suitable age group:
Morse Code Mayhem! Ages 5-7 Kids learn Morse code through clapping, stomping and singing, followed with games to get their bodies moving.
Fun with Flags Ages 5-8 The International Code of Signals is easy to learn if you’re spelling your own name. Children spell their names with naval signal flags in a colouring and cutting craft. This activity is best suited for smaller groups of under 20 participants and requires preparation prior to the booked day.
Amateur Radio at Admiralty House Ages 7+ Ever wondered what it would be like to talk to someone across town or even on the other side of the world without a telephone? Now you can find out by booking Amateur Radio at Admiralty House. Groups have a chance to chat over the radio with other amateur radio operators and play games. Note: This activity is volunteers dependent and may not be available on all desired dates.
Canada in 50 Years Ages 9-11 A lot has changed since Newfoundland joined Canada in 1949. Kids get a chance to have their thoughts heard on how Canada will change in the next 50 years by creating collages in groups and presenting to their peers. This activity meets badge requirements for Girl Guides.
Artifact Awareness Ages 11-14 Groups get a behind the scenes look at the museum’s collection while learning about how preserving artifacts and archival material can help us better understand our heritage. This is followed with a hands-on activity where children are taught how to properly handle historical materials, how to photograph them, and what they can learn from physical items of the past.
Seniors’ Tour and Tea is sure to delight all who have an interest in history and a passion for conversation! Groups of seniors can book tours of the museum followed with coffee, teas, and treats. A minimum of 10 people is
required for a booking.
Seasonal senior events are available in the summer. Check back for more program opportunities.
