Ancient Memories: Growing up at the ROM

“ROM Summer Club is not your average campit's the camp of future palaeontologists, archaelogists, scientists, engineers and playwrights."

A visit to the ROM can transport you to faraway and fascinating places, powerful periods in history, and past civilizations or natural events that have shaped our world today. For a child, it can foster a lifelong love of learning, spark new passions, and conjure magical places in the imagination.

As a mom of two (now grown-up!) children, I love seeing our galleries and classrooms bursting with wide-eyed kids during the summer months. ROM Summer Club is the only place in the city where learning spaces feature giant dinosaurs, Nisga’a and Haida crest poles that rise storeys high, and mummies from thousands of years ago.

When one of our captivating educators tells a story at the Museum, they tell it with awe-inspiring artifacts and specimens around them. Only at the ROM do kids have the opportunity to explore natural history and world cultures through engaging activities like making comets out of dry ice, Skyping with curators working in the field, or presenting a defence plan against zombies to a panel of archaeologists and Museum security staff!

If you attended any ROM educational programs as a child, you know how formative and memorable these special experiences can be and how worthy they are of support. I invite you to make a donation to help eliminate financial, social, and cultural barriers that might stand between the community and the Museum.
