John R Park Homestead

Maple March Break for Families

Spend some time over the break with a sweet visit and tour of the John R Park Homestead with interpreters guiding you along the way. Learn the history of this sweet springtime treat as you help to make and taste maple sugar. Arrive early, dress warmly, and be sure to wear boots!  Help carry the sap using pails and a wooden yoke. Try your hand at the brace and bit drill. See the trees tapped and the sap evaporating. Check website for details on the Maple Program.

Point Pelee National Park


March 16 – 20, 2020. You never know what the weather will be like during March Break, but rain, snow, or shine, we have great activities planned for the entire family. Get your family team together for our amazing scavenger hunt. Pick up your instructions at the Visitor Centre and look for clues, solve riddles, and win a prize. Our Kids’ Craft Centre will be in full swing throughout March Break, featuring a different nature craft each day. Colour a bird, butterfly, or dragonfly and add it to our migration tree. Take a break and watch a special feature film at 11 am and 3 pm.

Art Gallery of Windsor


Overlooking the Detroit River, make art inspired by Québec artist Françoise Sullivan from March 16 – 20, 2020.  Camp participants will enjoy the Françoise Sullivan exhibition from the Musée d’art Contemporain in Montreal while exploring art-making in many mediums.  There will be something for everyone, including one-of a-kind portraiture and mixed media sculptural projects.  The art campers will also work collaboratively to produce a dance project inspired by the performances created by Sullivan.  A field trip is also planned during the week.  Recommended for ages 6 – 12 years old.  Daily or weekly rates available.

No one wants to hear “I’m bored” on Day 1 of March Break! Have no fear – there is so much to explore Windsor Essex and the break is an opportunity for a week full of family fun!
