Online Camper Health Form

The museum has partnered with CampDoc to provide an online health information management tool for summer campers and scouts at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Registered patrons will receive an email from with the subject: “Houston Museum of Natural Science via CampDoc.” (Email sample is below.) Please accept the invite and complete the profile for your registered camper or scout.

Please help us help your child by completing your camper’s profile with CampDoc and notifying us of any disabilities, allergies, accessibility concerns, behavioral, psychological or emotional concerns, or any other special needs.

While we strive to offer our summer programs to as a wide a range of children as possible, it is not possible for us to offer one-on-one care.

In the case of severe food allergies, it is not possible for us to monitor what other children bring to the museum.
