Pre-Session Camp Information:
This year most school districts are in session until Wednesday, June 26th. In order to meet the needs of working families we’ll be running a modified program on Thursday June 27th and Friday June 28th. Campers will be broken up by age and work through stations run by teachers and counselors. More specific information will be sent through our mailing list.

Understanding Class Fees:

  • Material Fees are for any consumables utilized in a class. It includes RC cars, rockets, engines, beads, arts and craft supplies etc. These consumables are either used up and/or taken home by the camper.
  • Technology Fees are those charged in technology classes that utilize technology like laptops, iPads, 3D printers, digital cameras etc.
  • Track Fees are costs to maintain and repair the off road tack.
  • Ramp Fees are costs to annually resurface and maintain the ramps for the safety of the camp.
  • Transportation Fees are for attending an offsite class. These rates are determined by the bus company. Off-site classes include golf, rock climbing, gymnastics, and tennis.
  • Site Fees are the costs that off-site facilities charge for utilization of their equipment and space.

Late Fees:
Full payment is due on May 1st. If a balance still exist on June 1st a late payment fee of $250 per child will be added to your account. This is due to the excessive amount of unpaid balances that we have been experiencing well into the camp season.

Payment Options
We are giving parents two options for payment.  You can either pay in full when you register or make automatic monthly installments.   Your first monthly installment will be on your day of registration.  Your number of payments will be determined on your registration date.  The earlier you register the more installments you will have.  Final payment will be on or before July 31, 2019.   We hope that by doing this, camp payments will be spread out for up to 7 months.   Should you wish to withdraw prior to May 1, 2019 there will be a $200 administrative fee per child.  There are no refunds after May 1st.

How to register?
Discover Camp utilizes an online registration system.  This system allows you to manage your child’s dates of attendance, courses, and payments.  The system will show you which classes are age appropriate and which classes are open.  You must select one class per period for the time that your child is at camp.  If you have special requests, please contact the Discover Camp office.  Please visit www.DiscoverCamp.com/register to enroll.  Enrollment for returning families begins January 29, 2019 at 8 p.m.  Enrollment for new families begins January 31, 2019 at 8 p.m.

Discover Camp Early Registration and Loyalty Discounts:
Each year we offer special rates to families that return to Discover Camp and register early. This year we’re offering a $600 discount on early enrollment for the full 7 weeks, full day. Registration must be received by February 17, 2019. The early registration not only helps our loyal families financially but also assists us with planning ahead and hiring staff. The best part about our discount plan is that we do not require full payment until July 31, 2019. Again, it's the commitment we need not the full payment.

Discover Camp’s “Family & Friends” Referral Program:
Discover Camp has been built on word of mouth and from referrals. We thank families for referring new families with a 2.5% off tuition discount.  In addition, we also give this same discount to the new family that is being referred!  There is no limit to the number of families you can refer.   The registration system referrals will be based on a secret coupon code that returning families will receive in an e-mail.  Referrals will be applied directly to your balance or we’ll credit your account and send you a check.

Sibling Discount:
Each year we offer a sibling discount.  Two children receive 5% off total tuition, three children receive 10%, and four children receive 20%.  Unfortunately discounts apply to tuition only and not to other fees.

Happy Camper Guarantee
If your child is not 100% happy within the first three days of camp we’ll refund 100% of your camp tuition no questions asked.  Your child’s positive summer experience is very important to us.

Registration System
Our registration system allows parents to pre-create their accounts ahead of registration to speed up the registration process.  The system allows parents to add classes to a cart and lock those spots until they check out.  You are able to sort classes by period and grade.  You must select one class per period that your children are attending.  Each child must be put in a program, ie: Full Day Full Summer before classes are selected.

Other Important Information

  • Parent Visitation: Parents will have the opportunity to visit classes during the last week of each session. We have a system in place to make visitation appointments.
  • Camp is closed Thursday the 4th of July in observance of Independence Day.
  • Camp T-shirts, water bottles, and backpacks will be distributed during the first week of each session. Students are encouraged to wear their shirts everyday. Campers will receive five camp shirts.
  • Each camper should carry their Discover Camp backpack, a water bottle, sunscreen, and any other personal items they may need. Backpacks and personal belongings should be clearly marked with your child’s first and last name. In an effort to be more “green” each camper will receive a Discover Camp water bottle at the opening of camp to reduce the use of plastic cups.
  • The camp is not responsible for the personal property of the campers. Campers should not bring expensive items to camp unless they are to be used in a class.
  • The Directors reserves the right to cancel or modify any courses if enrollment is insufficient or if a change of instructor is needed. This event is highly unlikely but does occasionally occur.
  • The Directors have the right to remove a camper from camp should their behavior be inappropriate, dangerous or interrupt the learning of others.

Class Changes

All changes must be made by phone or e-mail by June 3, 2019. After this date there will be no more class changes until after the first day of camp so that we can properly prepare for opening day. After the first day of camp you may change classes on Monday evening, or on Tuesday or Wednesday only. Any changes made thereafter will incur a $100 per class change fee. Please understand that changing classes is disruptive to the teacher and other campers which is why we discourage it.
