The health and safety of our campers is always our first priority. The Summer Camp at HMNS program has extensive health and safety procedures and staff training in place every year. This summer, in light of COVID-19, The Summer Camp at HMNS Team is updating these procedures extensively, informed by current recommendations from local, state, federal health officials, agencies, and authorities, including CDC guidelines. At this time, we are planning to proceed with our summer camps as scheduled, beginning June 1, with extensive health & safety modifications.
Our operational modifications include strongly urging advance online purchase of summer camp, and before and after camp at store.hmns.org and the emailing of completed Camper Health Record forms to firstname.lastname@example.org to enable “low-touch” entry to the Museum and communication with the summer camp staff.
Please review our planned modifications for summer camp by selecting the Summer Camp Operational Modifications link on the left.
