FAQs

  • I've registered. What's next?

    Send in the Emergency Medical & Release Form at least two weeks prior to the start of camp. This form is REQUIRED. Your Camper will not be allowed to attend Camp until we have a completed form.

    Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to the start of Camp. Parents/guardians should escort Campers to the Learning Garden entrance, located between the Parking Deck and the main entrance to the Museum.
