No. A parent (or a designated responsible adult) must be with his/her child at all
times. Any unsupervised children
will not be permitted to participate in any of the days' activities. In
some cases, due to limited space, adults
may be asked to wait just outside the activity room.
If a registered child is not wearing their TYCTWD
ID badge and appropriate footwear, they will be denied access.
Closed toed shoes must be worn by all to participate. Late arrivals may also be
denied access at the discretion
of the Program Sponsor.
Children 14 or older may volunteer to work at the Hub area. Click on the Registration
Tab at the top of the page
for more details.
TYCTWD activities are free of charge. The only costs are for lunch and swimming,
if desired. Information on ticket
sales for lunch and swimming will be provided via emails, and on the web
site news page.
The day’s activities will include:
NCI at Frederick and Fort Detrick wanted to engage in outdoor activities for children
as well as indoor. Having
the event during summertime ensure the best time of year to plan outdoor
activities. Additionally, given that
the date of the NIH Main Campus TYCWD falls during the academic year, most
members of our community thought it
would be best to plan the Frederick event when children are out of school,
so they are not taken out of academic
study for a day during the school year.
Registration is the process of picking the sponsored programs ahead of time. Once
registration is over, the programs
will be assigned in a fair manner through an automated mathematical algorithm.
If you only have one adult available to supervise your children on the day of the
event, then you should register
all children as a single group under the one “chaperone” so Programs appropriate
for all of their ages will be
made available to you.
If you have more than one adult available to supervise your children, and you would
like to register them
separately, you may do so by registering adding multiple chaperones when registering your
children. Each chaperone will be treated
as a separate group, enabling the different groups to attend different Programs.
For safety reasons, please do NOT wear sandals or other open-toed shoes. Sneakers
or athletic shoes are recommended.
Anyone wearing open-toed shoes will NOT be permitted into laboratories,
shops areas, and other facilities where
safety is an issue. Be mindful of the weather. Sun block as well as umbrellas
and slickers in case of rain are
