About our Camps

Our Camps run at three different locations throughout southwest Florida, Four Freedoms Park in Cape Coral, The Village School of Naples, and The Norris Center of Naples. Camp duration are different at each location and are based on the summer break schedule for each county. The first Monday for all three Camp locations is June 5th, 2017. Four Freedoms Park camp runs for eight weeks, from June 5-August 4, 2017. The Village School camp runs for 6 weeks, from June 5-July 28, 2017. The Norris Center camp runs for 9 weeks, from June 5-August 11, 2017. Camps are one or two weeks in duration and all camp sessions are from 9:00am-4:00pm each day. There is no camp during the week of July 3-7. There is a unique offering of camps every week, which allows your child to have a new experience from week to week.

 

Camps cost vary based on location, please reference information for each location. There is no special pricing for siblings. To inquire about payment please contact the office of your chosen camp location. Payment for Four Freedoms Park and The Norris Center are taken directly through the facility. The Village School Camp payment may be made by check on the first day of camp or through the payment portal on the information page.

 

Camps are available for children who will be entering Kindergarten through 6th grade in the upcoming fall. Camps are not designed for children under the age of five. High school students, ages 12 and above, may apply for a volunteer position as a Youth Teaching Assistant (YTA). See YTA tab for more information and the application.

 

Super Science Summer Camp is committed to creating a meaningful and welcoming camp experience for all campers. If your camper needs special accommodations, please list any pertinent information with your registration materials, or contact the registration office at your location and ask to speak with the Camp Manager.

 

Pick-up and drop-off for each location will occur in the classroom used for camp.

Drop-off/Pick-up

Campers must have their own transportation to and from camp each day. Drop-off and pick-up is supervised by Camp Staff each day. Parents must come inside to sign campers in and out, that includes all YTAs too. On Mondays, camp drop off is from 8:45-9:15am, and is located at the classroom used for each location. Tuesday-Friday, drop-off is from 9:00-9:15am in the same classroom.

 

Pick-up is at 4:00pm, and is in the classroom. Please see the Forms tab for a detailed description of all drop-off and pick-up procedures, including late drop-off/early pick-up policies.

 

Preparing for Camp

Campers should come to camp with the following:

 

  • Good shoes for walking (no flip-flops, please!)
  • Clothes appropriate for the weather, playing outside and doing crafts
  • Brown bag lunch, with two additional snacks, a drink
  • Water bottle


Please put a name on everything that comes to camp. Sometimes items get forgotten or lost and we want to make sure campers go home with everything they brought! Please check lost and found on Friday afternoon. Super Science Summer Camp does not provide or apply sunscreen. Please put sunscreen on your child before dropping them off at camp. If they require additional applications, they must be able to apply it themselves. Electronic devices are not allowed to be used in the classrooms, although they may be used during lunch and before/after care with the permission of a YTA or staff.

 

 

Lunch


Campers should bring their own brown bag lunch- we do not provide food for campers. Campers do not have access to vending machines, refrigerators, or microwaves, and campers are not permitted to purchase food from street vendors.

 

Medication/Allergies

If your camper needs medication throughout the week, please give it to one of the Camp Staff at the check-in table on Monday morning. Camp Staff is not allowed to administer any medication; all medication must be self-administered (except for epi-pens). Please make camp staff aware of any medical concerns you may have.
To prevent sickness from spreading through camp, sick campers should stay home. This includes symptoms like fever, throwing up, and lice. If your camper is having symptoms the night before, please keep them at home the next day.
Please note that Super Science Summer Camp is NOT a nut-free camp. Camp Staff does their best to accommodate allergies, but we do not restrict any foods from camp. Please be sure to list any allergies in your registration materials. Staff will make sure you camper’s instructor and YTAs are informed.

 

When do we call you?

There are times when it is necessary to call you or your alternate emergency contact. These include, but are not limited to:

 

  • When a camper is too ill to continue with the activities.
  • When a camper has lice.
  • When a camper is being overly disruptive to the camp and campers.
  • When a camper exhibits unsafe behaviors in the classroom or in the parks.
  • When a camper is physically or verbally hurtful to instructors, staff, or fellow campers.
