The Cade Museum will notify selected applicants of their award by October 13, 2023. This notification email will provide further instructions for enrollment. Scholarships must be accepted by October 20, 2023, or the spot will be forfeited.

Late pick up- by 5:30pm
Will I pack lunch for my child?
Yes, you will need to pack a lunch for your child each day. Siblings attending separate camps may not be able to eat lunch at the same time, so each child’s food should be packed separately. One snack will be provided and water will be available for your child throughout the day.
Can my child bring personal items and electronics to camp?
To ensure every child’s safety, campers are not allowed to bring any toys, electronics, or other personal items to camp.
What should my child wear to camp?
Campers should wear comfortable, close-toed shoes and clothing they don’t mind getting messy. Sunscreen may be applied prior to student drop-off, as campers may visit Depot Park as weather permits.
Will my child be required to wear a face mask at camp?
Will I receive a refund if the museum cancels a camp?
Yes. If the Cade Museum cancels a camp, a refund will be issued within three weeks of cancellation.
What is the cancellation policy?
A full refund will be issued if requested a week prior to camp start date by contacting email@example.com
If I have a child in each camp age group, will they get to see each other during the day?
Campers in different age groups will be together at early drop off and at pick up. The groups may also overlap during lunch and park times, depending on the daily schedule.
Will you screen students before they are admitted into the camp?
The Cade team will take every camper’s temperature at the time of morning check-in, and no child with an above-normal temperature (>100.4 degrees F) will be permitted to attend camp that day, nor for at least 24 hours after any sign of fever. To protect the safety of all of our campers, any child with a fever or any other signs of illness must remain home.
