Before Camp Begins

  • Be sure that your Registration Form includes your child’s date of birth. This information ensures that he/she is placed in the appropriate age group. If you did not include this information on your form, please call the museum's Reservations Office at 503.929.2703 to provide it so that his/her spot at camp is secured.
  • The final balance is due by May 25, 2018. Registrations made after May 25 must be paid in full. All camp deposits and payments are nonrefundable. 
  • Be sure to fill out the EcoTarium Permission and Health History Forms for each child. These forms may be downloaded below or picked up at the EcoTarium's Information Desk.
