Montshire Summer Camp
Health and Safety Guidelines

Due to the current public health situation, we are actively incorporating recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Measures may change over time and we will adjust and communicate accordingly.

The Montshire Museum of Science is incorporating the following policies and expectations into our camp programming.


In accordance with Montshire policy, masks are encouraged but not required for campers when they are indoors.

  • Show symptoms of COVID-19
  • Have a fever (temperature greater than 100.4°F)
  • Are currently in isolation due to testing positive for COVID-19, or in quarantine due to being a close contact

COVID-19 symptoms include the following:

  • Chills
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle pain or body aches
  • Headache

Camper Code of Conduct

Before the start of camp, ensure your child is ready to comply with all aspects of the camper code. Campers unable to follow these guidelines will not be able to participate in our camp program this summer.

What the Montshire is Doing to Ensure Safety

  • Each camp has dedicated indoor and outdoor spaces.
  • We are limiting group sizes to 20 or fewer campers.
