CMA Summer Camp is for students ages 6-14. The Camp will be divided by the amount of students registered and age groups (usually ranging from ages 6-10, 11-14).


Each camp runs for 5 days. Students registering for a “Full Day” are required to pack a lunch every day to eat during the supervised break, with social distancing outside or inside. Small bags are allowed for lunches and other necessary items. Bags should be sanitized prior to bringing inside the Museum, and must remain in the student's assigned area at all times. There will be no trading or sharing of lunches or other items. Bags should be cleaned and sanitized upon returning home.

 

New Health & Safety Guidelines
There are many changes we will be implementing based on current health and safety guidelines for reopening museums and camps. The Museum is following guidelines from the Ohio Governor's Office and Ohio Department of Health (Responsible RestartOhio Museum Sector Reopen Guidelines), CDC, the American Alliance of Museums, and best practices set forth by museum directors across the state and country amid COVID-19. Some of the changes we will be making include:

  • Decreased camp size to only 9 students per instructor.

  • Campers will stay with the same group and teacher throughout the day.

  • Staggered drop of and pick up times, with arrival and departure at the CMA main entrance off Market Avenue North. More details to follow with registration.

  • Spaced out, 6 ft. individual seating and kid friendly social distancing training for campers.

  • All CMA staff members are required to wear masks. Campers will be required to wear a face mask. Single use masks are available at the Museum.

  • Art materials and tool kits made for each individual student to prevent cross contamination.

  • New later in-person camp dates in July to ensure we have all of the supplies and safety procedures in place and ready for campers.

  • Increased cleaning schedules and hand washing procedures throughout the day, including upon arrival and departure. Sanitizing stations are being installed throughout the Museum, including on entry and in the classrooms.

  • Classrooms will be deep cleaned after each use.

  • Review further guidelines from the Ohio Department of Health – Consumer, Retail, Services, and Entertainment and OH – Day Camps.
