BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — As many summer camps are going virtual this summer, the Roberson Museum and Science Center is welcoming campers through their doors this summer.

The Roberson will host camps starting on July 13 and will run until early August. Public programs coordinator Kelly Cole said giving kids in the area an opportunity to learn this summer was vital in the Roberson’s decision.

“We kept seeing all of the other organizations in the area shutting down their summer camps, so we really wanted to make sure that we ran them,” Cole said. “We want them to get out of the house, we want interaction outside of my own home.”

However, the camp won’t happen without changes. All staff members and campers will be required to wear masks, the number of campers will be capped at 10, and social distancing will be enforced.

Additionally, every camper will get their own supplies to be used during the week to limit common touch points.

Cole says while virtual experiences are nice, at the Roberson, in-person is hard to beat.

“With the camps, in person, we’re allowed to use the exhibitions in the building, we’re allowed to use the mansion, the different space we have here, whereas virtually it’s nice to look at them but you’re not going to get the same reaction, the same interaction as you would if the kids were here in the exhibitions themselves,” she said.
