Please Note: When choosing a summer camp, schedule your child for the grade level that they will be entering or going into in the fall of 2021.
To ensure the safety of our students and parents, we have enacted new health and safety practices:
1. All camps will be a limited number of participants and 2 STEM educators
2. Masks and hand sanitizer for staff and participants will be provided throughout the Center for all guests to use
3. All students will be separated by minimum of 6ft, with minimum shared touch activities
4. All counter and table top surfaces will regularly be disinfected, and all materials will be cleaned thoroughly before and after use
- For full day camps (9 am - 2 pm), our camps will have a lunch break, and all camps will have periodic snack breaks. Snacks and lunches will not be provided on site, so please be sure to remember to send snacks, lunches, and drinks/water bottles each day of camp according to your child's needs.
- We will be spending time outdoors (weather depending), so please make sure your young scientist dresses accordingly (i.e. coats if it's chilly, tennis shoes, comfortable clothes, etc...). Sunscreen will not be available on site, so please keep skin care in mind when sending students.
- Drop off and pick up will take place at the Planetarium entrance on the right side of the front of the building. Staff will be stationed there to welcome campers in during drop off. Parents will not be permitted entrance into the building before or after summer camp. Pick up will occur promptly at 12 PM ( Astrotots ) / 2 PM (Junior & Senior) at the same door. Adults can remain in their vehicles lined up outside of Challenger, and staff will safely escort campers to their vehicles or guardians.
