What to Bring:

? Discovery Camp T-Shirt: Your child’s camp t-shirt is necessary as it provides immediate visual recognition of your child among our other museum patrons. All children must wear their camp shirt each day.

? Clothing: Our camps are activity-oriented. Please make sure your child is wearing comfortable clothes they can get messy in and closed-toe shoes (sneakers are recommended) that are comfortable for walking.

? Sunscreen: Please apply sunscreen before camp. You may send sunscreen along with your child for re-application.

? Drinks: Please send your child with a filled water bottle daily as we will spend some time outside and it will be warm.

? Lunch: Please send your child with a lunch that does not need to be refrigerated or heated. CDMoD will provide a healthy snack.

Meals and Snacks

All camps have a scheduled snack in the morning and the afternoon and a supervised lunch for campers enrolled for a full-day. CDMoD provides a healthy snack in the morning and afternoon, but does not provide lunch. Please send your child to camp with a lunch that does not require refrigeration or heating. If your child prefers their own snack, please send one as well. If your child has food sensitivities / allergies, please include that information on your registration form so that we can make appropriate accommodations.

Behavior Policy

Fun and safety are only possible when there are behavior guidelines. Students are expected to show respect for fellow campers, counselors, staff, themselves, and the museum exhibits. Due to safety concerns, disruptive behavior and physical aggression are not tolerated. Camp staff are trained to use positive management tools in the camps. If any camper does not respond these methods, they will be escorted to the office for a time-out. If the problem persists, campers may be removed from the program with no refund.

Illness Policy

If your child is unable to participate in camp due to illness, we ask that you keep them at home, both for their own wellness, and to maintain a healthy environment for other participants. We are unable to offer refunds for missed camp days because your camp fees support the operational cost of the camp as a whole. We appreciate your understanding.
