Science Fun

2020 Science Camps

Due to the pace of our programs, we require that all campers have at least started Kindergarten before the start of their camp.

All Week-long and Single Day Cary Camps are held at:
Science Fun For Everyone!
111 James Jackson Ave # 107
Cary, NC 27513

Science Fun For Everyone has redesigned our 2020 Science camps to comply with local, state, and CDC guidelines to provide a safe and fun experience for campers.  

ScienceFun is a longstanding family favorite for summer enrichment. While camp will operate a little differently this year to ensure camper and scientist health and safety, we PROMISE it will be fun, creative, educational, and memorable!

What will stay the same at Science Camp this summer?

  • Our Science Camp hours will remain the same: 9:30am – 4:30pm

Before-Camp Care: 8:30am – 9:30am (additional sign-up required)
After-Camp Care: 4:30pm – 5:30pm (additional sign- up required)

  • Same great caring and professional fun Scientists
  • Same great experiments, fun activities and games
  • Daily emails to the parents to keep you updated on each day’s activities
  • Fun take-home experiments (please let us know in advance if you would NOT like your child to take-home their experiments/activities)
  • And many of the same great camp experiences that makes our camp a family favorite!

What will be different at Science Camp this summer?

  • Our camp sizes will be smaller
  • Increased cleaning and sanitation throughout the day
  • Children will be required to wash their hands more frequently
  • Face masks for the staff and increased hand sanitation stations
  • We will have a carpool drop-off and pick-up area- Please be patient with us on this as we are trying something new.
  • Social distancing reminders and smaller groups
  • Professional cleaning service -provided by Environment Control, every evening after the campers leave
  • More outdoor activities, including snack and lunchtime (weather permitting)
  • Campers will remain with the same camp staff for the entire week
  • Health screenings will take place each day
  • Anyone showing signs of illness of any kind will not be admitted to the camp.

What to Bring?
A backpack or bag with:
-a mask for your child(ren)   
-a non-refrigerated lunch (pizza lunch for purchase is also available)
-bottled water or a water bottle
-a beach towel for snack and lunch seating
Please label all items. Please apply sunscreen prior to camp. 

NEW- CARPOOL 
Carpool will be new and necessary to minimize the intermingling of groups and allow for social distancing. We ask for your patience as new protocols may extend drop-off and pick-up times.   Adults and siblings must remain in the car and are asked not to enter camp spaces.

Carpool morning drop-off will be 9:15am – 9:45am
Carpool afternoon pick-up will be  at 4:15pm – 4:45pm

If you arrive outside of these times, just ring the doorbell and we will meet you at the door.  Before-Care and After-Care: we will meet you in the front of the camp lobby entrance

HEALTH AND SAFETY
All ScienceFun families must comply with the following protocols to create a safe camp environment this summer. These protocols may change as local, state, and CDC guidelines are revised. 

  • Parents will be asked to answer health screening questions about campers each day
  • Campers and staff will engage in increased handwashing and use of hand sanitizer upon arrival, departure, before and after eating, before and after bathroom use, and between activities. 
  • Campers will learn how to social distance in all camp spaces and we will do our best to make this fun!

SAFE CAMP PARTICIPATION STANDARDS
ScienceFun requires staff and campers to meet health screening criteria in order to ensure a safe camp experience. Please review the requirements below to ensure that your child is eligible to participate before registering and prior to attending. 

Eligible to Participate 
No symptoms of COVID-19.
No travel to/from high-risk areas as defined by the CDC.
No prolonged contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19. 

Ineligible to Participate 
Showing symptoms of COVID-19. 
Living in a household with someone diagnosed with, showing symptoms of, or confirmed exposure to COVID-19. 
Traveled to/from high-risk areas as defined by the CDC. 

Campers who show any signs of illness or fever during the camp day will need to be picked up immediately. Siblings will also be required to leave camp for the day.  Campers and siblings may return to camp only after being fever-free and symptom-free for three days without medicine. 

ScienceFun is so excited and can’t wait to provide a fun and educational camp experience for your child!  We appreciate your patience, flexibility, and graciousness as we have made adjustments over the past few months and as we continue to do so throughout the summer.  Our Science Camp will run smoothly with Health, Safety and Fun as our top priorities.  

Science Fun For Everyone has suffered a huge financial hit from the closures and changes. Your support will help us bounce back better than ever! Thank you
