WHAT SHOULD MY CAMPER BRING/WEAR?
Campers should be dressed for playing, exploring, and possibly getting a little messy! We will provide snacks and a camp t-shirt.
Each camper should also bring the following items with them to camp:
- (2) face masks that cover the mouth and nose (1 to wear, and 1 as a backup)
- 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)
WHAT HEALTH & SAFETY MEASURES ARE IN PLACE TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF COVID-19?
All MOST Summer Camps will be conducted with the following health and safety procedures in place, subject to change depending on current public health guidelines:
- Regular cleaning and disinfecting of camp spaces, classrooms, and exhibits
- Frequent hand-washing breaks and distanced work stations
- Small class sizes (up to 15 campers) for health safety and stronger engagement
- All counselors and staff will wear masks as required
- Campers must bring masks and will be encouraged to wear them when not outdoors or eating, etc.
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 street level entrance (to the right of the main entrance by the large iron gates.) Please be prepared to sign your camper in. Pick-up for week-long camps is from 2:30 – 3:00 PM and for Saturday Mini-camps is 12:30 – 1:00 PM, also at the street level entrance. 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 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 we use that information to group them accordingly during lunch time.
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 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?
