Chaperone Guidelines

Chaperones play an essential role in creating a positive
group experience at Long Island Aquarium, and being
a chaperone is a great way to enjoy a visit to our facility.

Upon your group’s arrival at Long Island Aquarium, have
your coordinator proceed to the Group Check-In at the
Main Entrance. All others should remain on the bus until
greeted by an Long Island Aquarium staff member.
(Remember to schedule a departure time with your bus driver, and make sure that you have your group outside at the Riverfront Parking Lot at the scheduled time.)

When checking in, your coordinator will need to provide a final headcount, so that each visitor can receive a wristband. An Long Island Aquarium map, schedule, and chaperone badge will also be distributed at this time.

As you serve as a chaperone, please keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • Have your badge visible at all times;
  • Remain with your group throughout your visit, regardless of ages;
  • Accompany your group in our City Treasures Gift Shop;
  • Share our Behavior Guidelines with your group
    prior to your visit;
  • Know your day’s agenda – including the location
    and time of your departure;
  • Report to the Information Desk near the main entrance
    if a group member gets lost or injured.

Chaperones (minimum age 21) are key to a successful visit, and groups receive one free adult chaperone for every 10 paid admissions ages 3-21, or one free adult chaperone for each adult/senior group.
