Potty Training Policy
All campers attending SciGenie Summer Camps are expected to be fully potty trained by their first day of camp. We ask that families provide extra set of clothes with campers, if a camper has a history of bathroom accidents. If an accident occurs during camp hours, a member of our Leadership Team will notify the campers primary parent/ guardian.
If our on-site staff determines that your camper is not fully potty-trained while at SciGenie Camps, we reserve the right to dismiss your camper. This will occur without a refund (or portion thereof) or credit towards future program. This will occur only after parent /staff discussion has occurred.

Not only do returning SciGenie families get to reserve some of their weeks early at the lowest rate of the season, but each family is also assigned a unique Loyalty Discount Code based on the number of years they have attended our summer camp.
