Our camps are for children and teens ages 4-15. For Summer 2023, we will be using grade levels instead of age groups to classify camps. When deciding which camp is best for your child(ren), remember to select the grade that they will be in for the 2023-2024 school year.
For our youngest campers (PreK-K/4-5 yr old), all campers MUST be FULLY potty trained by the time they attend camp. Our program is a structured setting, and we have found that campers who have attended structured preschools and nursery schools tend to be more successful than those who have not attended such programs or have only attended day care. It should also be noted that there is NO nap time, and unfortunately we cannot accommodate campers who need a nap. Refunds cannot be given for younger campers who prove to be unsuccessful in our camp.
Club SciKidz carefully considers the age range for each course as we receive feedback from our instructors, parents, and campers, but at the same time we understand that every child is different. When children are close to the next age group, we allow parents the flexibility in deciding which camp is best for their child. It is important to note that some technology courses require some experience and prerequisite skills, so this should be considered when making the decision. Feel free to give us a call if you’d like some information on which camps might be best for your child.
Please note that you will see some camps listed in the 4th-6th grade (9-12yrs) and 6th-8th grade (11-15 yrs) categories. As children move towards middle school age, parents can choose to place their child in either group depending on the child’s abilities and experience with the subject matter. However, be aware that the 11-15 year old group is often on the higher end of the age range, and some younger campers may not be as comfortable with this group as others.
