Discovery Lab is committed to providing a safe, fun, and friendly environment for our students and staff. To keep this commitment, Discovery Lab asks all campers to adhere to the following guidelines:

***Respect for your child will be demonstrated at all times and Discovery Lab expects the same respect from your child for his/her peers and camp staff.

***In the case of disrespectful, harmful, or belligerent behavior by any child, after appropriate re-directions and warnings are given, parents will be contacted and the child may not be allowed to return to camp.

Discovery Lab staff abides by the following classroom management guidelines:

» If a child is disruptive, he/she is given a warning by staff.

» The second warning will result in an in-class time out.

» If disruptive behavior continues, the student will be asked to step out of class to have a discussion with the Camp Supervisor. Parents will be notified at check-out.

» If behavior is still not corrected, parents will be contacted and student may be dismissed from camp.

Discovery Lab has a zero tolerance for violent behavior. Parents will be immediately contacted and the student will be dismissed from camp.

» All campers are required to wear masks that cover the nose and mouth in all areas of the museum, including the classroom. Gaiters and handkerchief coverings will not be allowed.

» A handwashing station is locatied in each clasroom.

Discovery Lab reserves the right to cancel your camp reservation if your child does not meet the age requirement of the camp. The above cancellation policy will apply to camps cancelled because the child does not meet the age requirement. Discovery Lab reserves the right to cancel a camp based on registration numbers. Registrants of a cancelled camp will receive advance written notice as well as a full refund.
