DMNS Camp Safety
DMNS prioritizes the health and safety of your camper. We are monitoring and will follow all public health guidelines for camps. The following procedures were implemented for 2020 camps and may change based on the most current health guidance.
We are adhering to all CDC, CDPHE and DPHE orders around face coverings. At this time, face coverings are not required for DMNS Science camps.
Those that wish to wear a face covering while at camp may do so. Face coverings will be removed during snacks, meals, and some outdoor activities. If a child needs help removing or replacing a face covering, staff will use gloves to help and/or immediately wash hands before and after helping.
In compliance with public health guidelines, those that are required to wear a face covering after possible exposure or exiting a quarantine will be required to wear a face covering while at camp. Temporary face covering requirements may be put in place during the summer, as needed.Extra face coverings for campers will be available in case they are needed during the day.
To help campers stay healthy we will have set times for washing hands, including when campers arrive at the Museum, before and after eating food, after using the toilet, and touching items or surface that may be frequently touched by other people.

DMNS Camp Registration Form Policy
Check out our updated Camp Policies and Procedures.
Log into CampDoc here.
Once you have purchased your camp(s), you will receive an email from CampDocs with an invitation to create a CampDoc account to then complete your CAMPER REGISTRATION FORMS. To complete your registration form, you will need information required of all State-Licensed child care programs. Each child you registered will need one form filled out, regardless of how many camps they will be attending. We encourage you to have your form completed at least three weeks before the camp start date to allow plenty of time for review and any necessary edits.
To ensure that your child has a great experience at camp and for their safety, any Camper Registration Forms not submitted for review or confirmed as “Approved” by the Denver Museum of Nature & Science one week prior to the upcoming registered camp date will have their camp registration for the purchased week forfeited without refund. The purchaser of the camp will be asked to provide the email of the individual responsible for the completion of any and all registration forms.
If your child(ren) attend public schools in the state of Colorado, there is a good chance that we already have access to their updated immunization forms in the correct format. We will not need immunizations from your camper(s). If your campers are coming from out of state, or do not attend public schools, we will need this information before they can start camp. You will be notified if we require you to submit your immunization records via your Camper Registration Form.
Additionally, DMNS Camp staff are routinely trained in administering emergency medication relating to asthma and/or allergies; including inhalers, oral and/or topical allergy medications, and epinephrine for anaphylaxis. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to contact Camp Director staff to discuss all other medications that may accompany your child to camp. At least 3 weeks’ notice is required as some medications may call for additional trainings and/or medication administration delegation to meet a camper’s individual medical needs. Camp Director staff can be reached by phone at 303.370.6455.
