Other Registration FAQs
Yes, you can request enrollment in as many camp weeks as you like! (World’s Best Chefs: limit 1 week per participant) You can also do what twenty percent of our campers and CITs do and repeat a previously attended camp. We vary the adventures from year to year, adding new storylines, workshops and activities…all carefully selected to fit themes kids love.
During Kids Inc Wizards & Wands: Our movie director offers a Young Filmmakers option. Campers and CITs create a Potter-themed movie to screen at the Friday finale. It’s a great fit for kids interested in learning to act for film, make props or create costumes and special effects. To see our film trailer, click here.
For a reasonable fee, we offer extended care for campers from 3:00 until 5:00 pm each camp day. You can sign up for aftercare at the time of enrollment or add that option later. The cost is $20 for 1 day, $40 for 2 days, $55 for 3 days and $65 for 4 or 5 days in the same week.
Our entire leadership team is excited to make sure you walk away certain your camp investment was worth every penny. We employ adults who are educators because that level of professionalism makes all the difference in the quality of the kids’ experience…it costs more but it’s worth it. We bolster the team with interns and a large group of counselors in training – role models in our leadership training program. The end result is an exceptional staff to camper ratio; allowing a packed schedule of hands-on, kid-done creativity AND plenty of attention for everyone.
We generally send enrollment confirmations within one week of request submission. Registration preference is determined by day not by timestamp and, if necessary, a lottery system.
