The JHHSM will be implementing additional health and safety measures during these camp days; including regular hand-washing, distanced activities in the museum and outside, and campers will be given personal supplies (crayons, paper, etc) not to be shared between campers. The museum will be closed to the public during these camp days and all spaces cleaned before camp. The camp will be limited to 8 campers max and all campers must be from Teton County.

Our 2020 programming and adjusted operations in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic is made possible through a partnership with Wyoming Humanities and the National Endowment for Humanities.
