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.

A minimum deposit of 20% of your tuition plus materials is required upon registration to Discover Camp regardless of the number of sessions you are enrolling for. Balance is due on or before May 1, 2015. Due to limited enrollment no refunds will be issued after May 1, 2015. Should you wish to withdraw prior to May 1st there will be a $200.00 administrative fee per child.

Discover Camp Early Registration and Loyalty Discounts:
Each year we offer special rates to families that return to Discover Camp and to the families that they refer who register early. This year we’re offering a $1020 discount on early enrollment for the full 7 weeks full day. This is more than 20% savings off tuition. Registration must be received by February 12, 2016. Visit our website to enroll. The discounts obviously help our loyal families financially but also assist us in planning ahead and hiring staff. The best part about our discount plan is that we do not require full payment until May 2nd. This gives families six to seven months to plan and spread their payments out. We only ask for a 20% deposit per child to lock in your discount. Again, it's the commitment we need not the full payment. I don't know of another camp that gives an early enrollment discount without requiring full payment up front.

Discover Camp’s “Family & Friends” Referral Program:
Discover Camp was built on word of mouth and referrals. We thank families for referring new families with 2.5% off tuition. In addition, we also give the same discount to the new family that is being referred! There is no limit on 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, 10% off total tuition for three children, and 20% off total tuition for sending four children. Discounts apply to tuition only, discount does not apply to material fees or class fees besides tuition.

Happy Camper Guarantee
If your child is not 100% happy after 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

Last year we rolled out our own propietary registration system. This system allows parents to pre create their accounts ahead of registration to speed up the registration process.. The new system will allow parents to add classes to a cart and lock those spots until they check out. The registration system will allow you to sort classes by period and grade. You must select one class per period that your child(ren) is/are attending.

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 appointments mornings or afternoons.
  • Camp is closed on Tuesday 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 every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
  • Each camper should carry a backpack that includes a water bottle, sunscreen and any other personal items your child 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 personal property of the campers. Campers should not bring expensive items to camp unless they are to be used in a class.
  • The Director 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 there behavior be inappropriate.

Class Changes

All changes must be made by June 1st by phone or e-mail. 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 Monday evening, or on Tuesday or Wednesday only. Any changes made thereafter will incur a $100 class change fee. Please understand that changing classes is disruptive to the teacher and other campers which is why we discourage it.
