What if my child requires additional assistance?
Children of all abilities are encouraged to participate in our camps and classes. In order to ensure a fun and safe experience for your child, please inform us if your child has any allergies and/or special needs. Gilbert House Children’s Museum does not provide 1:1 supervision for participants needing assistance with personal care; however care providers* are welcome to attend camp or classes at no extra charge. Please email Julia Golden, Programs Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to inquire further. Gilbert House Children’s Museum reserves the right to request 1:1 supervision for participants.
*Background Checks for Adults:
If an adult caregiver’s intention for staying is to help their child transition for a portion of the camp day, no background check is needed. If the adult caregiver’s intention is to stay for the entire camp or class to support a child (i.e. first drop-off experience, medical support, need for 1-on-1 support, etc.) they will need to complete a background check. The cost of the background check is $20 and parents will be asked to pay this fee.
Students will learn how “languages” are used to instruct a computer to perform functions, and they will use our Sphero robots to carry out these functions.
