Typical Day at Summer Camp
A Typical Week at Terrific Scientific Camp
Terrific Scientific strives to balance the social, recreational, and academic needs of our campers. Outdoor activities will depend on weather conditions and indoor activities will be substituted as needed.
Parents will be issued a unique ID# Monday morning. This number must be provided by anyone picking up your child. You will also be given an activity schedule for your child’s camp.
Since Terrific Scientific does not provide food or drinks during the day, parents should pack an appropriate amount of provisions for their camper. Water will be available at all times.
