  • A camper support guide to Zoom will be included in your Camp to GO! Kit and as part of our email communications.  We will also have live “Camper Orientations” and “Office Hours” where we can help support you and your camper prior to their week at camp to ensure the best experience at virtual camp.

What is included in the Camp to Go Kit?

  • Each Camp to Go Kit includes ALL the activities and materials to full participate in Museum Camps to GO. 
  • PLUS extra extension activities, colouring sheets, and surprises to keep the fun and learning going all week long.

What do I need to Participate?

  • Zoom Meeting requests will be sent for each class with a password to enter.

 

Please Note: For the safety and best interactive experience, we will be recording all camp sessions and ask that participants turn their cameras on during camp. 

Parent/Guardian assistance will be required for set-up and clean-up of activities for virtual camp and for any technical support your camper may need during the class.
