What is Summer Seekers?

Summer Seekers is an at-home program where we encourage you to explore how people your age lived and played in Goulbourn 150 years ago! Each 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! Check out the video below for more information! If you have any questions, email

Summer Seekers 2021

What does One Hand mean?

We use this hand icon to let you know how much adult supervision is required for each week’s activities. One Hand means that kids can participate unassisted, while Three Hands means that they’ll need quite a bit of help!

What are Badges and how do they work?

Summer Seekers is filled with opportunities to try fun activities and learn new skills. Our 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 badges. 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.

The best part? For every FIVE badges you earn, you will receive a prize in the mail! The museum will contact you when you become eligible for this offer.*

Kits Club Members will also receive a 50c credit on their membership card for every badge they earn! For more information on how to become a Kits Club member, email

*Offer is available to residents of Canada only.
