COVID-19 Policies

To ensure the safety of participants and staff, the following policies are in place for these programs: 

 

Groups will be kept intentionally small and will be comprised of only the children who have paid for the program and a few chaperones. To limit exposure to non-family members, we are requesting that no older or younger siblings attend the program. These siblings, along with their parents, will be welcome to explore the property during the session at no extra charge. We will request a few parents accompany their children through the program, so if you would like to chaperone, you are welcome to do so (again, unfortunately we can only offer this opportunity to solo adults).  

 

We will be dividing the students into similarly aged groups. Group swapping will not be possible on the day of the program. We understand that children like to be with their friends and we will do our best to fulfill requests made more than 4 business days in advance of the program. 

 

All programs will occur outside, and will proceed rain or shine, so dress for the weather! For safety reasons, these programs will not use the main Visitor Center, except for restroom visits.  

 

All supplies will be sanitized before and after every program.  

 

Children and chaperones will need to remain masked at all times during the programs. We understand that masks are challenging, especially for children. If your child will struggle to wear a mask for 90 minutes, we recommend exploring London Town and its grounds at a different time.  

 

 Given the ever-shifting nature of this year, we may unfortunately need to cancel the program at any time. We will immediately contact you via the email address you provide if we need to cancel, and we will refund your program costs. If anyone in your family is feeling unwell, we ask that you do not attend the program, and we will give you a full refund. If you choose to not attend for another reason, we will provide a full refund until one week prior to the program, after which we are unable to offer refunds (unless the prior conditions are met).
