My child can’t attend camp. What is your refund policy?

All changes or cancellations to camp reservations must be completed by May 31st. Prior to May 31st all cancellations will be subject to a refund of up to the full price of the camp minus a $25 fee, per camp. For those camps purchased after May 31 there will be no changes, cancellations or refunds issued.

Can my camp be cancelled?

In case of insufficient registration, Carnegie Science Center reserves the right to cancel any program two weeks before it begins. All registered participants will have the option of attending another camp or receiving a full refund.

Who are the camp instructors?

Carnegie Science Center camp instructors are professional teachers and college seniors majoring in science or education, assisted by college students with documented experience working with children. Camps are designed by camp instructors and full-time Carnegie Science Center professionals to be age-appropriate, stimulating, and exciting. All summer camp staff members–instructors and assistants—have passed thorough background checks.

How many children are in each camp?

The number of children in each camp session varies, but we make sure that an adequate number of adults are on hand for each group. The student: teacher ratio for each camp is 12:1 for ages 6–14, and 7:1 for ages 4–5.

What does the camp registration fee include?

Camp registration fees include all scheduled activities, instruction, plenty of time to explore the Science Center, and a summer camp T-shirt. Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh members enjoy discounted fees. Fees vary by length of camp; camps with field trips may have additional costs.

Are scholarships available?

A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. Call 412.237.3400 for more information.
