*Due to the prevalence and severity of allergies among our campers, the Museum is implementing a strict "NO NUTS" policy. With every camper's utmost safety in mind, it is now a requirement that campers may not bring any nut products (tree nuts or peanuts) in their lunches, and all planned activities throughout every camp session will not include nuts.
