Camper drop off and pick up is located on the west side of the Museum near the bus circle on Gasparilla Plaza. Caregivers will need to provide a photo ID and sign for daily Pick Up.
If your child is picked up after 5pm, you will be charged the extended care fee. Any pickups after 6pm will be charged $5 per minute.

All campers should wear their Camp Imagination T-shirt, comfortable shoes, and attire for a fun day of play. Please pack an extra change of clothes for your camper. Don’t forget to pack your water bottle and boxed lunch if you don’t add Subway!

Any cancellation requested 21 or more days prior to the first day of camp will receive a full refund. Due to camp supplies and limited demand, a cancellation 14-20 days before the first day of camp warrants a 50% refund. A cancellation less than 14 days before the first day of camp warrants no refund.

At the Glazer Children’s Museum, we believe every child deserves to play with purpose. We are proud to offer a limited number of camp scholarships for our Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring Break camps. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need and camper interest. We are accepting applications for Summer Camp through March 29. To apply, please visit
