Spring Break Program Pre-Registration at the CFDC in Morden!

The Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre will be hosting a special advance registration event for its newly revamped Spring Break Program this Saturday, March 2nd, from 1-4pm. “We have an exciting advance registration day planned to kick off our new Spring Break package,” said Curator Joseph Hatcher. “We have all new child-friendly furniture in our classroom thanks to funding from Community Futures Heartland and the United Way. The advance registration event will showcase this new furniture and there will be fun games, balloons, free pizza and drinks for the students, our “Bruce” mascot will be hanging out all day while parents sign up their children for our Spring Break Programs.” This year, the Programs are themed for Science Tuesday, Biodiversity Wednesday and Rock & Fossil Thursday. The programs will run in the mornings for ages 3-5 from 9:30 – 12:00 and for ages 6-12 from 1:00 - 4:00 daily, March 26th, 27th, and 28th. Some of the exciting activities this year include making Elephant Toothpaste on Science Tuesday and then on Biodiversity Wednesday the students will learn about Birds of Prey, many of which can be found in the Pembina Valley. Ever wondered what it’s like to be a paleontologist? Learn the tricks of the fossil hunting trade on Rock & Fossil Thursday! Cost is $40 inclusive for the whole week or $20 per single day session for each student. “What we are most excited about is that we have lowered our required age level to allow younger children to be a part of these exciting programs,” said Hatcher. “Parents have been asking for programs for younger children, and we have listened. We only ask that your 3-5 year olds be fully potty trained when you sign them up.” The Spring Break Program at the CFDC is being advertised all across the Province as well as into Ontario, including large scale promotion by Travel Manitoba. “Since this new program is open to a younger student audience and due to its large scale advertising, we are inviting local area residents to come for an advance registration event on March 2nd,” said Hatcher. “We have had so much interest from Winnipeg and beyond already that we wanted to give the local residents a special opportunity to sign up early, on a first come, first served basis and will continue until the program reaches maximum capacity. New Easter Program The CFDC will be closed on Friday, March 29th in observance of Good Friday, but will re-open with an all new Easter Program for children ages 1-6 on Saturday, March 30th from 2-4 pm. Children can make fun and colourful Easter crafts, go on an Easter egg hunt, and meet the Easter Bunny. Parents should bring their own camera. Cost is $5 per child.
