FAQ & Refund Policy

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the refund policy?
We always want your child to attend our camp. First we will try to move your child to a different camp session if we have openings. We understand that things happen.
  • 46 days or more before July 10-Full refund minus a $25 processing fee
  • 31-45 days before July 10- You will receive a 50% refund
  • 30 days or less from July 10-No refund
What are the camp’s objectives?
Science Connection is a hands-on interactive camp that makes science fun!
What will my child eat?
We provide a snack that ties into our daily theme and you provide a lunch. Each child is given a water bottle. The teacher will fill the water with fresh cold water everyday for the children and the child will get to take home the water bottle on the last day.
Is the curriculum the same all summer?
Yes, the curriculum is the same every session. Every summer there is a new curriculum. Science Connection has designed the curriculum so that a child may enter the program at the age 4 and have new curriculum every year all the way through 5th grade.
Can my child be in the same class with a friend?
Yes, the registration online is live. The registration page shows the current openings for each class. Just find a class with openings and all sign up for the same class.
Can I sign up for more than one session?
Yes, I have had several campers come for more than one session. The campers rotate all day from classroom to classroom. There is plenty of opportunity in the building and discover room for a child to find new things to explore. The experiment and snack time will be the same, but the rest of the day will be your child’s own adventure.
Where do you get your teachers?
We work throughout the year looking for qualified teachers. Almost all our camp teachers are elementary teachers or they have extensive background with the childcare industry. This year we have made an exception, we have one high schooler that will teach this year. Courtney Bohrer started with the program when she was 4 and went through the entire program. Now she is 18 and is going to be a teacher this year.
Are the different fish different classes?
Starfish is just the name of the classes. Instead of calling the class Ms. Courtney’s class we call it the starfish class. The curriculum is the same for each age group, example Kinderscience classes all study the same thing. The Curriculum is developed specifically for each age group. But the curriculum is different for each age group, example the kinderscience classes learn different curriculum than the science explorers. A child can enter the program at the age of 4 and come to camp every summer till 5th grade and never have the same curriculum.
