Q: Do I need to attend with my child?

As an accompanying adult, do I need to purchase a ticket?
A: Yes. All attendees must purchase a ticket

Does my Explore Jr. registration include entrance to the Creation Museum?
A: No. Explore Jr. registration does not include admission to the Creation Museum. You may purchase tickets online or on the day of the event at the ticketing booth.

Q: What is the camp cancellation policy?
A: Cancellations requested more than six weeks before the camp date will receive a refund less a $50 cancellation fee per camper. We are unable to refund registrations less than six weeks before the date of the camp for which you are registered. To cancel your registration, please contact us.

Q: Are Jr. Explorers divided into teams?
A: No. Jr. Explorers complete the day’s activities with their accompanying adult. This a great way to spend time together as a family!

Q: I have multiple children who would like to attend. Does each child need an accompanying adult?
A: No. However, for the best experience during the program, we suggest no more than three children per adult.

Q: Can I bring children under the minimum age?
A: No. As accompanying adults will be participating in the program with their child, we are not able to accommodate children who are not attendees.

Q: I would love to bring a group of students from my co-op class. If I attend as a teacher, does a parent still need to accompany each child?
A: Yes, a parent will need to accompany each child. Explore Jr. is designed for the parent and child to enjoy together and offers opportunity for parents to reinforce what they learned together in everyday moments.

Q: How is Explore Camp structured
A: Each day is topic specific and consists of three interactive sessions. Each session includes a hands-on lab, project, activity, or scavenger hunt to assist the children in applying or reviewing what they have learned.

Q: Registration on the website is closed. Can you put me on the waiting list? Will you open additional seats for a sold-out Explore Jr. Camp?
A: As we receive so few cancellations, we have not found a need to create a waiting list. Due to classroom size, we are unable to open additional seats for Explore Jr. Camp.
