2020 camps

Summer camp

Summer camps are packed with fun, hands-on activities for all ages!

Camp sessions are scheduled to take place at half capacity due to the COVID-19 situation. We're taking several preventative safety measures to keep you and your campers healthy this summer, such as:

  • Campers' health will be screened daily through a series of questions asked to parents.
  • Campers will be in groups of no more than 12. The group will stay together the whole week and not mix with other groups.
  • Camp staff will wear cloth face masks at all times, except to present demonstrations from more than 6 feet away.
  • Campers will not be in gallery spaces during public admission hours.
  • Check in and check out will occur outside of the museum entrance.

For a detailed of the museum's preventative health and safety measures, please see our cleaning policies in the FAQ.
