Summer Camp FAQs

Summer Camp FAQs


Space is limited for all School’s Out Science Camps, and advance payment is required.

Purchases of week-long summer camp sessions are non-refundable but may be transferred to a different week of summer camp pending session availability. Notify Kentucky Science Center of the new session date requested by the Monday of the week before the start of your existing session. Days missed during the week are non-transferable and no partial refunds are given for absences.

We are committed to provide a safe and supervised environment for all campers. We keep parents informed of all on-site situations and do our best to work out any difficulties if they arise. If a camper continues to struggle with adapting to the camp program, Kentucky Science Center reserves the right to cancel that individual camp session without a refund.

Kentucky Science Center reserves the right to cancel sessions due to insufficient enrollment. If this occurs, a full refund will be issued.

Is there a discount for multiple children and/or camps?

We currently do not offer a discount for multiple children or multiple camp enrollments. However, we do offer discounts for Kentucky Science Center members.

Can I register my camper for a camp that is not in their age range?

The level of content and types of activities that will be completed in each camp are designed specifically with the listed age range in mind. Therefore, we do request that you only register your camper for a camp that is in their respective age range.

What happens if my child is absent a day?

Refunds are not provided for the absence of a child. The previous day’s topics will be reviewed each morning. If a day is missed, there will be time to make up some of the activities.

Is there nap time?

There will be a rest time for Pre-K/K camps. It is 30 minutes long. The lights are dimmed, and campers may sleep or read quietly. Mats are provided and will be disinfected before and after each use.

Medical Information

All parents/guardians must complete the Summer Camp 2023 Health and Permission form upon registering online. On this form there is a section for parents/guardians to write down any health, learning, or behavioral conditions of which the Kentucky Science Center should be made aware. This information is meant to help each camper have the best possible experience.

If your camper requires an Epi-pen or inhaler we will ask you to provide a labeled Epi-pen or inhaler for the week. You will also be asked to fill out our Emergency Action form at registration. Please note that we do not administer any other medication. In event of an emergency, we will contact 911 and then the guardians listed on the Health and Permission form.


Kentucky Science Center is committed to providing a safe and educational experience for all campers. If you are interested in enrolling or have enrolled a camper who made need accommodations, please contact the Manager of Camps & Family Programs at 502-560-7154 to discuss the specific needs of your camper and strategies that would ensure that your camper has the most engaging experience possible. We also welcome camper aides but require all aides who attend camp to clear a background check before camp begins.
