Camp Information & Policies

Things you need to know about Summer Camp

All children need to wear play clothes and sunscreen.

There is always the possibility of stains when working with science. Children do spill and we would hate to see them ruin any good clothing. While we spend the bulk of our time indoors doing science experiments; weather permitting we will head outdoors for short periods of time.

Campers must have shoes that will remain securely on their feet while running.

Be on time.

Arriving late will mean your camper misses out on fun science activities. More importantly, be sure to be on time for pick-up. Late pick up charges will begin 5 minutes after the end of camp at a rate of $1 per minute. Any late pick up fees must be paid to the Mad Science office before the next day of camp in order for your child to continue.

Bring a snack.

To avoid allergy issues, Mad Science will not provide any food during camp. However, it is always a good idea to inform us of any significant food allergies your child may have. We do provide break time for children to eat food brought from home. We regularly take a short break mid-way through each camp session so please be sure to send your child with a snack(s).

Half-Day (3-hour) campers should bring one snack.

Full-Day (6 or 7-hour) campers need to bring a morning & afternoon snack, in addition to a full lunch.

Please send your camper with a refillable water bottle to be kept at camp during the week.

Illness

As a general rule, if a child is not well enough to go to school or daycare, he or she is not well enough to attend science camp. If your child has any of the symptoms listed below, do not send them to camp without a signed doctor's release stating that they are not contagious. In the event a child becomes ill during camp, the parents will be notified and must arrange pick up within one hour. Children may come back to camp after remaining symptom free for 24 hours. 

Symptoms: Fever of 100 degrees F taken under the arm, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, sever cough, unusual yellow color to skin or eyes, skin or eye lesions, sever rashes (weeping, bleeding, or pus filled), difficulty breathing or wheezing, complaints of pain, or a child being a carrier of a child care restrictable disease as defined by the health division. Examples: Pink eye, green discharge from the nose or eyes, Lice, Chickenpox, etc.

Behavior Expectations

Mad Science strives to provide fun science activities to all children. We realize that the hands on, high energy nature of our program excites and motivates children, and our programs are specifically designed to harness and direct that excitement. Our instructors set clear boundaries and expectations for appropriate conduct, and we will hold all students to these expectations. If a child becomes disrespectful or hurtful of others in the program, we will notify you immediately and ask for your help in resolving the situation. If necessary, Mad Science may ask that your child be removed from camp. In such a case, the parent/guardian understands that any refund is at the sole discretion of Mad Science.
