Dress in comfortable clothing that can get messy. For safety, we recommend closed-toe shoes. Campers are encouraged to bring a sweater or sweatshirt should the studio be too chilly.

While EPMA staff is unable to dispense medication, you are welcome to come in during the class to give your child his/her medicine.


FAQs: Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Where do I drop off/pick up my child?

You may drop off and pick up your child on West Main Drive, adjacent to the museum. See map for details. Please line up along the curb. Museum staff will be there to sign in your child and escort them to the Art School. This pickup/drop-off service will be available 15 minutes before and after camp. If you prefer to escort your child yourself, park in the Mills Parking Garage, Convention Center Parking Garage, or at metered parking.

What if I need to pick-up my child early from camp?

On the first day of camp, please be sure to check your child’s roster for the names of individuals authorized to pick up your child. Contact museum staff with changes during the week.


FAQs: The Camp Experience
