General In Person Camp Info 

Following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Aviary has adopted enhanced safety protocols to make summer camps as safe as possible.

Enhanced Safety Protocols Include:

  • Camp capacities that have been reduced to 15 campers per session.
  • Campers and National Aviary staff are required to wear face coverings over the nose and mouth and will be reminded regularly to keep a safe physical distance of 6 feet from others.
  • We will be implementing a touchless sign in/sign out process.
  • Campers may be required to have temperatures taken prior to the start of each camp day. 
  • Our onsite staff members undergo a daily health risk assessment, including a temperature check.
  • These are all standard National Aviary practices for general visitors as well. Learn more.

National Aviary camp staff have previous experience working with children, all state-mandated clearances, and CPR/First Aid certifications. We ensure individualized attention so that each and every camper can enjoy an unforgettable experience!
