Summer Camp FAQs

Summer Camp FAQs

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?

We ask that you register your camper for their respective age range only.

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.

Registration/Refunds

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.

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.

Risk Free Refund: If for any reason you are unable to attend a week for which you are registered, simply notify us by Monday, one week before the start of that session to receive a full refund. To plan appropriately for staff, supplies and capacities, it is critical we can accurately anticipate enrollment and attendance. If you do not contact us by email by the date, we will be unable to provide a credit/refund for any fees paid for that week.

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.

Medical Information

All parents/guardians must complete the Summer Camp 2020 Health and Permission form prior to arriving to camp Monday morning. You will either fill this out upon

registering online or via a Google Form link that will be emailed to you a week before your camp date.This information is meant to help each camper have the best possible experience. 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.

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.
