Frequently Asked Summer Camp Questions

What is your payment policy?

Registration fees must be paid in advance to hold your place in camp. The easiest way to pay is with a credit card over the phone. We accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. You can also mail a check to Carnegie Science Center, Attn: Summer Camp Registrar, One Allegheny Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA, 15212.

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

Our summer camps are very popular and fill quickly. If you cancel your camp registration at least 14 days in advance of the camp start date, you will receive a refund equal to the cost of the camp minus a $25 service fee per person, per program. Cancellations not made 14 days in advance will not receive a refund.

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 412.237.1637 for more information.
