Preparing for Camp and Common Questions
In the weeks leading up to the start of summer camps, caregivers of campers will be emailed a registration packet. This will include detailed information about camper drop-off and pick-up, medical policy information, photo release information, and a consent for emergency medical treatment.
Registration packets need to be completed and returned to the History Center at least two weeks before the session your camper is enrolled in. If your camper is enrolled in multiple sessions, the same forms can be used for both sessions.
What is included with camp registration?
Registration includes a Camps at the History Center t-shirt, a daily snack, activity supplies, pizza on Friday, and a family admission pass to the History Center.
Where do I drop-off and pick-up my camper?
Campers should be dropped off and picked up at the double doors near the bus pull-in lane on Smallman Street. You will check your camper in and out with a member of the History Center’s Learning team.
How many campers are in each session?
There are 20 spots per week. Campers will be divided into smaller, age appropriate groups before the sessions begin.
Is lunch included with camps?
Pizza on Friday is included with camp registration. For the other days of camp, campers should provide their own lunches that do not require refrigeration or re-heating.
