General Frequently Asked Questions
What are the age/grade requirements for camp?
Our camp offerings are for rising PreK – 8th Grade.
Campers will be grouped by age and / or skill level to allow them to learn and apply their new skills at a pace that suitable for them. For example: Group 1 (6 – 7 yrs.) Group 2 (8 – 9 yrs.) Group 3 (10 – 13 yrs.)
Are there outdoor activities?
We believe that campers should enjoy nature and be a kid. We will have a recess period of 30 minutes in the morning & afternoon. Some camps may do specific lessons outside at the Camps Director discretion.
How do we handle the summer heat?
- Campers will have regular access to water fountains or drinking water taps. We will encourage campers to drink regularly & fill up throughout the day
- SciGenie counselors will plan lower activity games/activities when the sun is the strongest and will take advantage of shaded areas throughout the day
- If sunscreen is packed with camper, counselor will allow time and provide reminders for application
- Campers will be outside for no more than 30 minutes during the peak heat of the day
What are the camp hours?
The camp hours are from 9:00am to 4:00pm. You may drop off your child no earlier than 9:00am and pickup no later than 4:00pm.
When can I drop off and pick up my child?
Campers should arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled camp start. Please pick up your student on time. Pickups after 5-minute grace period will result in late pickup fee of $15 every 15 minutes. Please inform us if you know you will be late picking up your student. Instruct your student to wait inside the building and you should escort them from the building to your car. During peak times the parking lot is crowded. Please take into consideration that our campers may include young children. Please drive slowly and carefully.
What happens if the week of camp I want to sign up for is full?
If your week of camp is already full, you can join the waitlist online. There is no cost to join a waitlist, and no obligation to sign up once you’re on it. If you have questions about a particular waitlist or your odds of getting to the top of it, email us email@example.com.
What happens if I’m on a waitlist and a space opens?
If space opens up and you’re next on the list, we’ll send an email letting you know. You’ll have three business days to sign up for that week or class. If you don’t sign up, we’ll email the next family on the list to offer them the spot.
