The summer we’ve all been waiting for is almost here and SciGenie is about to do what we do best. You guessed it. We make great memories! It’s going to be a transformative summer filled with science exploration, art, engineering and just exciting monumental fun. Our motto is to always create a camp environment that is representative of our families with a team that creates a sense of belonging for everyone. We go to great lengths to make sure your kids are most comfortable and are participating in fun interactive activities that are hands-on, as they become one step closer to a better version of themselves. We want to partner with you to make it happen, and share some tips that will set us up for nothing but a successful summer.

  1. Get kids excited about the experience. There’s gotta be a lot of chatter at home about going to camp, because fun activities usually come with excited anticipation, so keep that enthusiastic momentum going!
  2. Label your child’s belongings. We all know how easy it is to misplace items when kids get together, so labeling is the best way to help us track down things that go astray. Please label your child’s name and group name on bottles or Tupperware.
  3. Leave electronics at home. It’s even harder when those very ‘dear to their hearts’ electronics walk away, or cause a disruption because someone else wants a turn with the very cool technological gadget. Summer camp is a time for us to spend time connecting, learning and forming new friendships.
  4. Connect with your child’s counselors. Our counselors are always happy to share with you the kind of day your camper had, and we love when you share with us the little tidbits about your campers that make them special. Keep a look out for our daily email updates and photos.
  5. Attend an open house. There’s no better way to get a feel for what’s going to take place at camp than to come to the open house where we will highlight the fun program, tap on expectations and rules. We will answer your questions and help the campers gain a better understanding of what to expect at camp.
  6. Complete all camp forms. The quicker you complete and return forms ahead of the camp start date, it will make for one less item off your list.
  7. Visit the website with your child. There’s nothing like visionary learning that can promote excitement. Use the website to outline with your child what they’ll be doing for the summer; while at the same time they’re able to view other kids having fun.
  8. Pack bag with your child. This allows them to have practice with self reliance and know ahead of time exactly what’s in their bags. They can get familiar with their sunscreen, their refillable water bottles and a change of clothes if one is needed for the younger campers.
  9. Questions. Ask your child if he or she has any questions. This is a good time to find out what concerns they may have. Let’s find out early what’s on their minds, so that by the time they arrive at camp there’s no anxiety, and they’re ready to have fun and make new friends.
  10. Start a countdown. Now that we’ve built all the excitement leading up to camp, we can start a countdown and mark those days off on our refrigerator calendar. The kids are now fully engaged with a timeline along with the fun and anticipation that comes with a new upcoming adventure for the summer.
