Summer Camp Accessibility

Museum volunteers assist with "Peter and the Raptor"

Museum volunteers assist with the Roco event, “Peter and The Raptor” – Note: This event occurred prior to the current updated health requirements due to Covid-19.

Summer Camp Accessibility

We are happy to accommodate children with disabilities and special needs. Please notify the Summer Camp Director of your child’s disabilities and special needs PRIOR to your child’s first day in the program.

If you have a camper who may need assistance to complete activities, a parent or caregiver should expect to stay in the room to assist. The individual that accompanies the camper must pass a background check.  Please contact the Summer Camp Director at (713) 639-4651 to discuss any special needs to help your child be successful at the museum.

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.

Email summercamp@hmns.org for more information.
