After School Enrichment Program Science Discovery Camp Summer of 2020-2021

After School Enrichment Program

Science Discovery Camp

Summer of 2021

As we reach the maximum number of students in a particular class/program, it will become impossible to register for the class/program.  There is nothing wrong with the site, this is an automatic process that closes the registration. Please note that in the event camp has to be cancelled, there will be a $20 non-refundable deposit.  

Registrations will be accepted until May 21, 2021, classes are full or cancelled; whichever comes first.  Please be prompt in completing registrations since class sizes are limited and classes have filled very quickly.

Confirmation emails will be sent as programs are confirmed with the minimum amount of students required to operate the programs. If you register for multiple classes, it’s very possible that all classes will not be confirmed at the same time.  This simply means that you may receive multiple confirmation letters.  Confirmation letters will contain all important information about pick-up of students, snacks, etc.  Your confirmation will include ALL COVID guidelines and procedures along with your daily COVID symptom check.  All procedures will be followed.  No parents will be allowed to enter the building(s).  All campers will need to wear a mask.  Permission form.  

WHAT IS Science Discovery Camp

Girls and boys can enjoy a fun-filled week of science:  Anatomy, biology, CSI, dinosaurs, earth science, general science, model rocketry, physics, space science and things that can fly.

Why Science Discovery Camp?

Science and technology are becoming more and more a way and a fact of life. Students need to gain an appreciation and a love for science. We strive to get campers excited about experiencing science in a hands-on environment.

Who is the staff of Science Discovery Camp?

The teaching staff is made up of elementary teachers, gifted teachers, enrichment teachers, intermediate teachers, middle school teachers, and high school teachers. 

How old is Science Discovery Camp?

Science Discovery Camp was established in 1989 as a sleep away camp, and has been running in its current format as a day camp since 1990! That’s over 30 years of hands-on science.

Who can come to Science Discovery Camp?

Girls and boys who will be in grades 1–9 next school year (2021/2022). Campers may choose to attend one half day program, or two half day programs and attend all day for the week.  Each program consists of five–three hour lab sessions.

PROGRAMS

Programs are divided by grade levels. The Grade level is the grade your child is going into NEXT school year, 2021/2022.
