Children aged four through 10 are invited to join in the fun at Government (Club) House — a brand new, magical learning adventure that kicks off this Saturday, February 17 during the Family Day long weekend.
“Government (Club) House is a great way to teach our children about Saskatchewan history and heritage, as they make new friends in a National Historic Site,” Minister Responsible for the Provincial Capital Commission Ken Cheveldayoff said. “It’s important to teach the next generation about our province in a fun and engaging way, and I think this program accomplishes that.”
There’s no cost to take part in the program, held on the third Saturday of every month from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. It offers children physical activity as they take part in a scavenger hunt in the museum, hands-on crafting, and interactive story time featuring tales by Saskatchewan authors and illustrators.
“We’re launching Government (Club) House this weekend to kick off the start of Heritage Week, February 18 – 24,” Government House Manager Monique Goffinet-Miller said. “There is so much history and magic preserved here at Government House. We wanted to ensure that the little ones have a way to experience that magic as they read, play, and learn together.”
Due to overwhelming community support, registration for the first Government (Club) House is full. Registration for the next Government (Club) House on March 17 opens on March 1. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
