Camp Policies

Changes or cancellations must be made in writing at least two weeks in advance of the camp start date to receive a refund. A $25 cancellation fee per person per half-day camp (Summer) or School's Out Camp day will be deducted from the refund amount. Cancellations made less than two weeks in advance will not receive a refund. Marbles Kids Museum reserves the right to cancel any camp two weeks prior to the start date due to low registration numbers. In this case, participants will receive a full refund. 

Camper Expectations
Marbles Kids Museum camps are built on respect, choice and participation. Parents and children ages 5 and older must sign a behavioral expectations form prior to camp. If a camper is asked to leave due to behavioral considerations, camp fees will be forfeited with no refund. Parents are strongly encouraged to note special needs on the registration form so our camp team can discuss them with parents in advance. Preschool campers must be potty trained (no pull-ups) and bring a change of clothes to camp each day.

Lunch & Snack
Campers should bring their own snack for each camp they are attending. Campers who are here all day should also bring their own lunch. In consideration of children with allergies, please do not send any food containing nuts or peanut butter.

Summer Camp Deposit
A 50% deposit is required at the time of registration to hold your space in camp.  The balance is due by May 15. We will automatically charge credit cards on file for balance payments unless other arrangements are made before May 15.

Summer Camp Family Discount
A 10% discount is given when one household registers for eight half-day summer camp sessions in the same transaction. Note: Discount does not apply to extended care, materials or membership fees.

Late Pick Up
Marbles Kids Museum reserves the right to assess a late pick-up fee of $1.00 per minute beyond camp hours at the discretion of the camp director.
