Frequently Asked Questions
A: Our summer camps are designed for children who will have completed K-7th grade before camp begins. The requirement for children to have completed kindergarten is strict. There are no exceptions. If you have a camper who you believe is developmentally and socially capable of being successful in a group of older (or younger) peers, we may make an exception for the grade level you register for. Please contact our Education Director at [email protected] or 541-682-7892 to discuss your unique situation.
A: We are only offering full-day camps this summer. Our camps run from 9am to 4pm, with extended care available. We have found that full-day camps better meet the needs of working parents in our community. Plus, full-day camps offer campers more time to engage with science inquiry and develop friendships with their peers this summer!
A: We love hosting educational programming for early learners at Eugene Science Center. However, we simply don’t have the space to offer pre-K camps this summer.
A: Yes! Summer Camp volunteers must complete an application, background or reference check, and an in-person training before volunteering. If you are a parent interested in volunteering while your child attends camp, you cannot volunteer for your child’s group but can help with a different age group or work behind the scenes. Learn more about volunteer opportunities here.
A: We do our best to meet the needs of every young scientist who wants to attend our camps. However, some needs may be beyond our capacity to meet. To discuss your child’s needs, please contact our Education Director at [email protected] or 541-682-7892.
A: We are hoping to be able to offer partial and full scholarships this summer. Stay tuned for more information!
A: Camps for 1st-2nd graders and 3rd-5th graders are capped at 12 children. Camps for 6th-8th graders are capped at 10 children.
A: If you are claiming child care expenses for your tax return, our EIN is 93-0688763.
