FAQs

Do you offer refunds or exchanges?
Camp reservations are non-refundable and non-exchangeable, except in the following situations:

  • If arrangements are made three weeks prior to your original program date, enrollment may be transferred to a new date and time if there is room in that program.
  • If we cancel the camp due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.

What if more than one of my children is registering, or my child wants to attend with a friend?
Please submit one form per child. Friends or siblings who wish to attend camp together:

  • must both fall within the age requirements of the session they plan to attend together.
  • should both submit a separate form.

Do you provide snacks and lunch?
We provide a morning snack for campers ages 6-8 and 9-11. You must send your child with a lunch, in a labeled lunch bag. Campers ages 3-5 will not have snacks or lunch.

Can I become a Milwaukee Public Museum member on the registration form?
