Discover Camp FAQ
Q-My child excels in school. Is Discover Camp the right camp for my child?
A-Since the majority of our instructors are NYS licensed teachers, we know how to differentiate the curriculum and adjust instruction to meet the needs of all learners. Many bright children are easily bored in school. Discover Camp’s instructors know how to enrich their curriculum to challenge the brightest students. Hobbies are also the perfect outlet for a child who is always looking for something stimulating to do at home and helps to keep them away from the dreaded video games.
Q-My child struggles in school. Is Discover Camp the right camp for my child?
A-Once again, since the majority of our instructors are NYS licensed teachers, we know how to differentiate the curriculum and adjust instruction. In addition, our use of SMART Boards offers children the visual reinforcement some children need.
Q-My child wants to take a certain class but does not meet the age requirement.
A-Normally we suggest that the child waits until they are of age to take the classes but all children mature at different rates. If you think your child is capable of the material then we’re usually willing to let them try it out. You know your child best.
Q-Can I change my child’s classes after I register?
A-Yes. You can make changes to your child’s schedule by June 3rd. After this date, we begin finalizing all attendance sheets and rosters to prepare for the opening of camp.
Q-Can I change my child’s class if they do not like it?
A-If your child is not happy with their classes after the first day, you may make changes on the second and third day of camp. Please understand that class changes are very disruptive to the instructors and usually require the use of extra counselors to catch up the new students. Any changes made after the third day of camp will incur a $100 class change fee per class.
Q-My child wants to attend Discover Camp for less than a full session. Can they?
A-Most children attend for full sessions but we have a number of children every year that attend for less. Children don’t get the full experience but our instructors and counselors make your child’s time at Discover Camp enjoyable and meaningful. Please contact the Discover Camp office in order to discuss which classes might be appropriate for less than a full session
