Summer Camp Frequently Asked Questions
What Will Day Camp Look Like...Especially This Summer?
STEM Camp days are filled with hands-on science activities. This summer, while we will continue to encourage sharing ideas and discoveries, campers will have their own dedicated supplies and kits to reduce physical sharing of supplies. Campers will be provided larger workspaces to encourage social distancing.
While lessons are TEKS aligned, the focus is placed on the scientific process of experimentation and discovery. Campers learn the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ along with the ‘what’. We love it when something doesn’t work the first time. It means we get to try again!
Staff or campers with a fever or other symptoms of illness will not be permitted to camp or will leave for home if symptoms arise.
Sci-Tech will follow local and Frisco ISD guidelines regarding Covid-19 policies (as the situation evolves, so will we).
What Are STEM and MAKER Day Camps?
STEM Camps: Campers entering 1st-4th grade in the fall work in our STEM classrooms on experiments and activities that introduce them to working in a lab as a scientist. They explore themes each week including astronomy, biology, chemistry and robotics. All activities are hands-on with an emphasis on discovery!
MAKER Camps: Campers entering 5th-6th grade step into our MakerSpace workshop to experience engineering and building with hand tools. Campers can use hand tools for woodworking, learn to code and program, assemble and program circuitry, and engineer mechanical devices.
Who is with The Campers?
All camp classes are led by experienced science teachers and counselor assistants.
Our Camp Manager and Camp Assistant Manager are onsite during camp and act as direct liaison with parents.
Children remain with Sci-Tech camp staff on-site all day.
Sci-Tech Camp Admin staff are Red Cross Certified in First Aid/CPR/AED and have years of education experience, many as local school teachers.
Camp teachers and counselors are comprised of local school teachers, museum educators, teaching students, and local youth program staff.
What Do We Bring?
Campers should bring:
Bagged lunch and morning snack (NUT FREE). Due to severe allergies by staff and campers, we run a NUT FREE CAMP.
Re-usable Water bottles.
Epi-Pens or other medications should be handed off to the Camp Manager each morning.
Closed-toed shoes for lab and workshop safety.
Camper should not bring:
Backpacks will not be permitted into camp in an effort to reduce personal belongings in the classrooms.
Toys, phones, tablets or handheld gaming devices as their use in not permitted in camp.
Money. The explore store will not be open.
Foods containing nuts or nut products. Due to severe allergies by staff and campers, we run a NUT FREE CAMP.
What Time is Camp?
9:00AM – 4:00PM Monday-Friday
Camp opens shortly before 9:00 am outside the museum doors.
Pick-Up will end shortly after 4:00 outside the museum doors. If you need later pick up, see After Care pricing below.
Campers picked up after our grace period may be charged $1 per minute.
Habitual offenses may risk ability to register in future camps.
How Much is Camp?
$350 for Members & $400 for Non-Members
$350 for Members & $400 for Non-Members
Unfortunately, we do not offer discounts for siblings or multiple bookings.
$100 for the week
Once a camp week is full, families can join a wait-list. Should a spot open up, we will contact those on the list in the order in which they signed up.
More than 6 weeks ahead of camp start = 100% refund
3-6 weeks ahead of camp start = 75% refund
1-3 weeks ahead of camp start = 50% refund
Less than 1 week ahead of camp start = 0% refund
Which Camp Group Do I Choose?
3 available camp groups to choose from
1st-2nd graders STEM
3rd-4th graders STEM
5th-6th graders MAKER
Choose based on the grade your child will be entering in the fall
Must be placed in correct grade level.
If you place them in the incorrect grade group and the correct grade group is full, camper will not be permitted into camp Monday morning.
Camp weeks rotate between themes throughout the summer
Campers may register for more than one camp but not for the same themed week twice
What Should I Do Before Arriving at Camp?
Download the CAMP HEALTH FORM from website for all campers, fill out completely and return signed by a parent or guardian before the start of camp.
Campers without CAMP HEALTH FORMS signed and filled out will not be accepted into camp Monday morning.
Ensure all food products are NUT free.
Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting messy in.
Communicate any health or medical concerns to our staff by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Get ready to have a blast!
What Else Do We Need To Know?
Campers registered for Maker Camp are REQUIRED to wear closed and have long hair pulled back at all times.
Campers must be able to speak conversational English.
Please note that our staff is not trained to work with children with special needs and cannot provide one-on-one care. You may opt to provide your child with a caregiver during camp (with no additional registration fee) if you wish to have your child participate in camp.
Violence is not tolerated at camp, and intentionally hurting another person on-site will result in automatic dismissal from camp without a refund. Other forms of disruptive behavior will be handled on a case-by-case basis with an established ‘ladder’ of consequences, which will be shared with campers at the start of camp. Sci-Tech reserves the right to contact parents directly or dismiss a camper from the program if repeated offenses are observed.
If you have any questions please email Austin Ng, Education Programs Manager, at email@example.com or call us at 469-896-2188 x4.
