Camp Fees
All camps are half-day sessions which meet daily for one week at a cost of $120 per student, with the exception of Build Your Own Telescope which costs $185 to cover the cost of materials the camper will get to keep. If you wish for your child to attend more than one camp, please include an additional $120 for each camp. Enroll your child in camps according to the grade level they will begin in the fall.

Incentive for whole day attendance of camp: Parents if you register your child for both the morning and afternoon session on the same week, you will receive a $40.00 discount. So, take advantage of this opportunity; register your child for the morning and afternoon for only $200.00 (this price does not include lunch). Additional lunch prices for the week is still $25.00.

Open House
An open house information session for parents will be held in advance of the first week of camp. More information will be sent to you via email.

Cancellations and Refunds
Camp tuition must be paid in full to reserve your child's place. Cancellations made by May 1, 2010 will ensure a full refund of camp tuition. For cancellations made after May 1 but by May 15, ECU will refund 50% of tuition. Cancellations made after May 15 will not be eligible for a refund. If a camper is unable to attend all sessions of camp for any reason, the camper will not receive a refund.

Completion of Forms
A completed and signed contract, health questionnaire, release form, and medicine administration form (if applicable) must be received within two weeks of your registration date to finalize registration. Enroll your child in camps according to the grade level they will begin in the fall. Forms may be faxed to 252-328-9371 or mailed to:

Photo Consent
ECU activities and events, including summer science camps, may be photographed or videotaped for publication in ECU information and promotional materials. Campers may appear in these photographs or videos. If you do not wish for your child's image to be used for this purpose, you must notify the summer science camp director in writing one week prior to the start of camp.

Lunch
When requested, ECU will provide boxed lunches through various restaurants located in the Greenville area. To receive lunches, campers must register for the lunch program and pay the $25 with registration. The lunch hour, lasting from noon until 1:00pm, is supervised by ECU staff and is included in camp tuition. Campers who stay for lunch but do not purchase the lunch program are required to bring a lunch. Refrigerators, microwaves, and other kitchen equipment will not be available.

Dismissal
ECU reserves the right to dismiss a camper when the camp director deems dismissal necessary for the best interests of the camp. In the case of behavior problems, ECU will submit one written warning to the parent before dismissing any camper, unless the behavior in question endangers other campers, in which case a camper may be dismissed without a prior written warning to the parent.

Field Trips
ECU summer science camp staff may escort campers from the central program area to Pitt Memorial Hospital, Brody School of Medicine, or other locations on the ECU campus as part of the regular ECU Summer Science Camp activities. If a trip is planned for your child's camp session it will be indicated in the camp itinerary.

Pick-up/Drop-off Policies
Parents or guardians will drop campers off at the corner of Founders Drive and Duncan Court which runs behind the Flanagan building and is best accessed via 10th Street. Camp counselors will be there to help direct campers and drivers.

A parent or guardian must authorize up to three individuals to pick-up their camper. Authorized individuals will be required to present valid identification to pick-up any child from camp. Parents must also provide a contact number in case an authorized individual without valid identification or an unauthorized adult comes to pick-up their camper.
