Are face masks required at camp?
For the safety of both campers and staff, at this time face masks covering the mouth and nose are required for all campers to be worn while at camp. Please note that this policy is subject to change as we continue to monitor what will provide the best and safest experience for our campers and staff.
Is there a discount for multiple children and/or camps?
We currently do not offer a discount for multiple children or multiple camp enrollments.
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.
Space is limited, and advance payment is required for all camps.
Days campers miss are not transferable to another date and no partial refund is given for absence.
We are committed to providing a safe and supervised environment for all campers. We keep parents informed of all situations and do our best to work out difficulties if they arise. If a camper continues to have difficulty adapting to the camp program, we reserve the right to cancel that individual’s camp session without a refund.
Kentucky Science Center reserves the right to cancel sessions due to insufficient enrollment, in which case a full refund will be issued.
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 children may sleep or read quietly. Mats are provided and will be disinfected before and after each use in accordance to state/local guidelines.
All parents/guardians must complete the Summer Camp 2022 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 in which the Kentucky Science Center should be made aware. This information is meant to help each camper have the best possible experience.
If your child 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 with special needs, please contact the Camps and Family Programs Coordinator at 502-560-7154 to discuss the specific needs of your child and strategies that would ensure that your child 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.
