SUMMER CAMP INFORMATION & FAQs
WHAT SHOULD MY CAMPER BRING/WEAR?
Campers should be dressed for playing, exploring, and possibly getting a little messy!
We will provide snacks. Summer campers receive a camp t-shirt.
Each camper should also bring the following items with them to camp:
- a packed lunch that does not require refrigeration or heating (the MOST will provide snacks)
- a water bottle labeled with their name
- a pair of socks for Playhouse time (if they are not wearing any)
- a sweater or jacket (optional – classrooms are air-conditioned)
HOW DO I PICK UP/DROP OFF MY CAMPER?
Drop-off time for all camps takes place from 9:00 – 9:30 AM at the MOST Front Entrance/Admissions Desk. Please be prepared to sign your camper in. Pick-up for week-long camps is from 2:30 – 3:00 PM, also at the MOST Front Entrance/Admissions Desk. Please be prepared to sign your camper out by providing proper identification. Every person who will pick up your camper from the MOST must be entered on the registration form as an authorized pick-up person. Late arrivals and early pickups should be scheduled by arrangement with MOST Education Staff.
MY CHILD TAKES MEDICATION. CAN THEY ATTEND CAMP
MOST Staff are prohibited by law from administering medication to campers with the exception of EpiPens in the case of an emergency. If your camper will need to self-administer medication while at the museum for camp, you must submit the Authorized Medication form by contacting email@example.com.
MY CAMPER HAS FOOD ALLERGIES. WHAT PROTOCOLS ARE IN PLACE TO KEEP THEM SAFE?
The MOST offers a separate lunch table for campers with allergies. It is important for parents and caregivers to list all allergies in the registration form because that information is used to group campers accordingly during lunchtime.
MY CAMPER MAY NEED LEARNING OR OTHER ACCOMMODATIONS. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
All MOST camps are designed to be inclusive and accessible to all types of learners. Personal aides may attend camp with your camper at no additional charge. Please contact Emily Stewart (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss and arrange specific accommodations/preparations for your camper. All relevant learning needs, accommodations, allergies, and health information should be listed on the camp registration form.
I WOULD LIKE TO REGISTER MULTIPLE CHILDREN FOR SUMMER CAMP. IS THERE A SIBLING DISCOUNT?
Please book your selected camps to ensure your spots, and then contact our Finance Office at 315-425-9068 x2112 for a rebate for multiple sibling registration.
IS AFTER-CARE AVAILABLE?
Optional after-camp care until 5:00 PM is available for all summer camps for an additional fee of $20 per day. After-camp care is only available for campers attending that day’s camp program, and therefore is not available via online sale. When you drop off your camper in the morning, simply select the aftercare option at check-in and make payment for that day – or all at once for the days you need it that week.
Campers in after-camp care will have additional time for exhibit exploration and completing preferred activities from that day’s camp.
After-camp care is not available for Break Week Camps.
