Adventures in History Summer Camp

Adventures in History Summer Camp 2020

Safety Is Our Top Priority

Monday, June 1 – Friday, August 7

The History Center’s Summer Camps have long been an especially important part of educational our programming. Please know that we will do everything in our power to assure that the museum and our classrooms are a safe space for students and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Class size will be reduced to meet Florida Department of Children & Families (DCF) guidelines for a 9:1 ratio: 9 campers to one teacher, including morning and aftercare. Due to class size restrictions, some camps are already at capacity and have wait-list links in the registration section below. If your desired camp is full, we encourage you to register for the wait list in case of cancellations.

Safety Guidelines

To help ensure the safety and well-being of both students and staff, we will follow the Center of Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), state, and local guidelines that include but are not limited to:

  • Implementation of social distancing strategies
  • Intensified cleaning and disinfecting efforts, including classrooms and surfaces touched by campers and staff (i.e. toys, hands-on objects, and supplies)
  • Frequent hand-washing and use of hand sanitizer
  • Use of face masks by teachers and education staff
  • No contact curbside drop off and pick up for campers
  • Temperature checks of all campers and staff

Also, please be assured that our Education Department, classrooms, and restrooms are not accessible to the public. Any visits to museum exhibits by campers will take place before the History Center opens to the public.
