Notes on Covid protocols:
The nature of this camp makes social distancing and guaranteeing sanitation relatively easy to manage, as we did for summer camps in 2020. As the date approaches, the Museum will stay in close contact with participants regarding safety protocols, which will be in line with state and local guidelines. Students will be required to wear masks and keep a distance. We will take temperatures of students but will not record that information. We will keep flexible refund policies to ensure that everyone is able to cancel to keep their families safe.
