HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOLS
Our goal is to provide a safe and worry-free environment for our campers and their families. Health and safety protocols will be implemented according to local, state, and federal guidelines which we will continue to monitor throughout the season. If you have any questions regarding our COVID-19 safety policies and procedures, please contact the Education Services Department using education@DurhamMuseum.org.
Any additional information will be communicated through our weekly parent e-newsletter. If at any point throughout the camp season you do not receive this newsletter, please contact the Education Services Department, as this communication is crucial to understanding day to day expectations/procedures.
Full refunds will be granted for positive COVID-19 tests or confirmed direct exposures. Any campers or camp staff who receive a positive COVID-19 test or are asked to quarantine due to direct exposure will not be able to attend camp.
Please note that drinking fountains are not available at this time. Water bottles are encouraged.

on the sweetest summer ever
Camp Construction Summer 2021
“My daughter LOVED her experience at Camp Construction! Of the 4 summer camps she attended at various Omaha facilities the Durham camp was by far her favorite! She loved the engaging and educational activities and the interaction with companies outside the Durham were wonderful. Each day she would be sad when I picked her up because she had so much fun. Often she would say “this had to be the last day because we did so many amazing things today I just don’t think it could get much better!” You have made us lifelong Durham supporters!” – Camp Parent
Wizard Academy Summer 2021
“She loved the camp counselors and all the fun activities about the wizarding world! Such a great camp and we can’t wait for next year!” – Camp Parent
