Students should not bring iPods or MP3 players, Kindles, iPads, laptops, gaming systems, etc. They are welcome to use these items or their cell phones prior to the start of class. We cannot take any responsibility for any materials a child brings to camp. Please keep valuables at home!

Q. What if I have to pick up my child early one day?

A Please let instructors know what time you will need to pick up your child prior to the start of the camp day. We would love to make sure your child is able to leave at the best educational stopping point if they must leave early.

Q. Can I come take pictures? My kids are building cool robots!

A Typically, parents' presence at camp distracts campers from participating fully. We will be taking pictures of all campers through out the week. At the end of each day of camp, you are welcome to come in 10 minutes before the end of class. The fourth day of class will also have a showcase of their work. We will let you know exactly what times to come by as the camps approach.

Q. What if my child has to miss a day?

A While we're sorry to see your child miss a day of camp we are unable to offer discounts or refunds for missed days. Furthermore, we will be working with you child more individually to catch her/him up.

Q. What is the refund policy if I have to cancel my child's registration?

A A full refund will be made if you cancel your child's registration 30 days or more prior to the start of camp. 50 percent of the balance of the camp tuition is refundable for cancellations made prior to the 2 week marker.

Q. What is the instructor to student ratio?
