CAMPS

 

The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences at Greenville and Contentnea Creek welcomes all campers and strives to provide an incredible learning experience to every child registered for our camps. Bring your curiosity and sense of wonder as you join museum educators for fun activities, games, and crafts! We offer half-day and full-day, week-long camps ranging in topics from Astronomy to Zoology — so there’s something for everyone!

We remain committed to offering programs that illuminate and celebrate the natural world. While the 2020 Summer Camps season had to be canceled, we are continually exploring opportunities for programs that can be offered as our situation evolves in 2021. 

COVID-19

For Public Programs

All in-person programs will follow current state and federal health guidelines and apply a range of safety measures to mitigate health risks, including smaller class sizes, moving into larger rooms (if indoors), keeping participants a safe distance from each other and increasing sanitation efforts.

Please note that in-person programs are subject to change or cancellation depending on COVID-19 restrictions. A full refund would be provided in event of a cancellation.

Health and Safety

The health and safety of program participants and staff at NCMNS is a priority. We will be following all recommendations by the CDC to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as we begin to offer programming to the children and families in our community.

We will be:

  • Conducting intake screenings for the children as they check in each morning (This screening consists temperature checks and screening questions assessing potential symptoms)
  • Requiring all participants to wear face coverings
  • Following recommended social distancing guidelines
  • Routinely disinfecting surfaces and equipment
  • Following a frequent and scheduled hand washing regimen with participants

We ask that you:

  • DO NOT bring your child if your child OR anyone in your contact circle is exhibiting potential symptoms of COVID-19. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
    • Fever or chills
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle or body aches
    • Headache
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Sore throat
    • Congestion or runny nose
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Diarrhea
  • Adults checking in/checking out the participant wear a face covering at the point of contact with staff at NCMNS.
