As we strive to provide the highest quality and safest camp experience possible, the camp team has created a smaller-format, more personalized summer camp experience. Additionally, we have updated or added safety policies and procedures to reflect current public health mitigation strategies, including:
• Smaller group sizes with separate classrooms, staff, and supplies to limit or eliminate between group camper interactions
• Modified drop-off and pick-up procedures
• Routine cleaning and disinfecting practices
• Daily health screenings and symptom monitoring for both campers and staff
• Required face coverings for both campers and staff
• Minimal interaction with non-camp Aquarium staff
• Exclusive access to Aquarium galleries for campers for 1 hour each morning prior to public opening
If your child has attended Aquarium day camps in the past, then camp is going to look a bit different this year. Here is what you can expect:
• Wider age range of campers within each group (5-10 years)
• No extended care
• Each camper will have their own supplies for all activities to eliminate the sharing of supplies and equipment such as scissors, markers, etc.
• Siblings will be placed in the same group, as will any identified “friend requests”
• Only one week of themed activities is offered
• We will not provide snacks. No hot lunch program will be available. Pizza lunch will not be provided.
