  • All camps include supplies that can be picked up at the Children’s Museum before the week of your camp, or delivered to you for an additional fee.


  • Everyone who registered for the Children’s Museum’s in-person camps this summer can transfer their registration fee to one or more virtual camp registrations, can receive a refund of their registration fee, or can opt to donate the fee to the Museum.


  • Demand is currently high, and we do expect that camps may fill up, so we encourage you to register early. Registration will be closed in advance of the camps starting, so that we can allow time for supplies to be delivered or picked up. If you register for a summer camp and need to cancel, we ask that you notify us more than seven days in advance of the camp for a full refund, cancelling after that will have fees that apply.
