New Health & Safety Guidelines
There are many changes we will be implementing based on current health and safety guidelines for camps. The Museum is following guidelines from the Ohio Governor's Office and Ohio Department of Health (Responsible RestartOhio Museum Sector Reopen Guidelines), CDC, the American Alliance of Museums, and best practices set forth by museum directors across the state and country amid COVID-19. Some of the changes we will be making include:

  • Decreased camp size to only 10 students per instructor.

  • Campers will stay with the same group and teacher throughout the day.

  • Spaced out, 6 ft. individual seating and kid friendly social distancing training for campers.

  • All CMA staff members and Campers will be required to wear a face mask. Single use masks are available at the Museum.

  • Art materials and tool kits made for each individual student to prevent cross contamination.

  • Increased cleaning schedules and hand washing procedures throughout the day. 

  • Classrooms will be deep cleaned after each use.

  • Review further guidelines from the Ohio Department of Health – Consumer, Retail, Services, and Entertainment and OH – Day Camps.
