Frequently Asked Questions

Will my child need to wear a mask during Camp?
  • Campers are required to wear a mask indoors. Should conditions improve and health guidelines change, Kaleideum may re-evaluate this policy. Information will be posted on this page and will be sent out to registered campers if there is a change to the camper mask policy.
  • Staff will wear masks except when eating and drinking or engaging in outdoor activities unless they are not able to maintain a safe physical distance from campers.
  • Museum guests  wear masks when they are indoors.
What are your sanitation and safety protocols?

Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our campers, guests, staff, and animals. Long before Coronavirus appeared, Kaleideum prioritized keeping the Museums clean and disinfected. We will continue to meet the highest standards of our cleaning protocol, which includes disinfecting our facilities, exhibits, and exhibit props daily with an EPA approved, hospital-grade disinfectant proven to kill COVID-19. Kaleideum staff follow basic hygiene practices, such as frequent handwashing and using alcohol-based sanitizers. Kaleideum staff received training on COVID-19 response through the Workforce Restart program. Campers will learn and practice proper hand washing techniques. There is a sink in each classroom. Kaleideum staff will have their temperature taken and will a answer a series of health questions before they are permitted to begin their shift.
