Summer Sunday Wagon Tours

01:00 PM — 03:00 PM

Family friendly horse-drawn wagon tours from the Oil Museum of Canada return every Sunday this summer, beginning July 8 until August 26. Tours are free with museum admission to the Oil Museum and are offered at 1, 2, and 3 p.m. The 45-minute guided tour winds its way through historic Fairbank Oil Fields, a preserved pocket where history happened and the authentic oil technology of the 1860s is still operating. Fairbank Oil Fields and the Oil Museum of Canada share a National Heritage Site designation for the first oil field in Canada. Stories, art, nature, oil history and ingenious technology are all combined in the tour as a pair of Belgian horses wends its way down Great Oak Lane.  Through woods and fields, the tour passes horses at work, life-sized metal sculptures of oilmen and the site where Canada’s first gusher struck in 1862.

MC Hoops Basketball Camp

09:00 AM — 03:00 PM

MC Hoops is a camp dedicated to providing high quality basketball training in Chatham-Kent from coaches with experience at high-school and university levels. Children at any level of basketball ability will learn new skills and have a great time.  This year we will have head coaches who have played on an All-American team and recruited for Division One schools in the United States; we are excited to be hosting so many great coaches and campers for our ninth year. One of the aspects of our camp that makes it special, is that each day time is set aside to teach biblically based messages that will help the children both on and off the court.  We welcome children entering into Grades 2-9.  Campers are divided up by age and ability to ensure that everyone who attends will receive the attention and instruction level they need. Registration is limited to the first 35 children in each age group. Every child who registers will receive a free basketball, a camp T-shirt and daily snacks.   For more information please visit www.mchoops.com, or email Pastor Dan for more info: dchristiaans@maplecitybaptistchurch.com
