Camps have one instructor and two teen assistants. The maximum capacity for art camp is 10 campers.
Parents/guardians MUST enter through The James Museum front entrance each day of camp to check-in their child. Check in stations will be located on the 1st floor in the main lobby. Parents may temporarily use our bus lane located on Central Avenue to drop off and pick up their child.
All parents/guardians must come inside to pick up their child at the end of each camp day. All campers MUST notify their instructor before leaving the building. Parents/guardians please bring a photo ID.
Campers should dress comfortably in clothing that can get dirty. Closed-toe shoes are required. We recommend packing a sweater as the museum is chilly. As a reminder, “roller or heely” shoes are not allowed in the museum.
Camps run from 8:30 a.m.-12 p.m. and/or 1-4:30 p.m. We do not offer before or after care. Out of respect for our staff and volunteers we kindly ask that you drop off and pick up your child at the designated starting and ending times. A $25 fee will be charged each day your child is picked up late.
Lunch time is scheduled from 12-1 p.m. for full day campers only. Snack time is scheduled mid-morning and mid-afternoon as well. Please pack a lunch, two daily snacks, and a water bottle for your child each day. Lunches will not be refrigerated or heated. Campers eat lunch at nearby Pioneer Park, one block from the museum, when weather permits.
