How do I register my child for Winter Camp?

Registration is done through our Campbrain link here. If you have registered your child for a Hands-on House camp, class, or event before, log back into your account. If you have not registered your child before, create an account to register them.

 

What is the cancellation policy?

The entire fee for camp is due upon sign up. If a family would need to cancel their registration, all but $100 would be refunded to them. In the event camp would be cancelled due to an emergency or COVID-19, campers will receive a credit for future camps—no refunds will be issued.

 

What should campers bring with them?

Snack is provided to campers each morning. Campers should bring a packed lunch with them every day that does not require refrigeration. Additionally, campers should bring a water bottle labeled with their name and warm clothes. Campers will be going outside onto the playground as weather permits, so please dress accordingly.

 

What is your mask policy for Winter Camp?

Our current policy is that masks are optional for all visitors and staff inside the museum. Should that policy change, parents will be notified before camp begins.
