COVID-19 Cancellation Policy:
- The health and safety of our campers and staff is our top priority. If your child has been exposed to or is exhibiting ANY symptoms of COVID-19, do not send them to camp. We will work with you to switch your registration to another week of camp, offer you a voucher for a future camp, or arrange alternate accommodations in unique circumstances.
- Please review our health and safety procedures before registering for camp. These are subject to change, and will be always include any recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health. Camp parents will be sent the most up-to-date health and safety procedures prior to their child’s first day of camp.
- The Works Museum will regularly update policies on COVID-19 safety based on recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health. Specific details on these policies will be emailed to parents and caregivers as they are updated. All campers must comply with health and safety procedures, or they will not be allowed to participate. If you have concerns or questions about a specific policy, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If The Works Museum must cancel your camp for any reason, we will work with you to find another camp to switch your registration to, or you will receive a full refund or a voucher for the full amount of the camp.
- The Works Museum makes the safety and enjoyment of all campers a top priority.
- If the safety of staff, campers, or property is at risk, the camper will be removed from class immediately and sent home.
- If a behavior issue occurs, educators will redirect campers.
- If the behavior continues, campers will be removed from the classroom and parents will be called. Education staff, parent, and camper will work together to problem-solve the situation and create a behavior plan for the camper so s/he can return to camp.
- If behavior issues continue, the camper will be removed from class and sent home for the day.
- If it is determined that a resolution cannot be met, The Works reserves the right to remove a child from camp.
NOTE: Because of our 10:1 camper to staff ratio, we are not able to provide the kind of one-on-one support that some students receive at school. If your child would benefit from this type of support, we are happy to have your child’s PCAs or other adult helpers join them at camp. To arrange specific accommodations, it’s best to contact us ahead time so that we can work together to ensure a successful camp experience. Please reach out to email@example.com if you have further questions.
- No age exceptions will be made for Pre-K camps. Campers must be entering a Kindergarten program in September.
- Campers MUST BE IN OR HAVE COMPLETED Kindergarten by the camp start date to register for camps in the 6-8 year old section.
- If a camper will turn 9 years old within 3 months of the camp start date, they may register for a camp in the 9-11 year old section. If the child is younger than this and the parent wishes to register them for a camp in the 9-11 year old section, the parent must provide a letter:

- On school letterhead
- Addresses the child’s ability to work with older children in terms of their social/emotional, fine-motor and cognitive skills.
