Q. What should my child wear or bring to camp?
A. All camp materials are provided. We do not allow any note-taking, so please do not bring any notebooks, pencils, etc. Also, please leave all toys and video games at home. Cell phones are okay, as long they are put away during the class. Some experiments will be messy, so dress accordingly. Shoes must be worn at all times, and no wheelies are allowed.

Q. Should my child bring a snack?
a. Yes. We have a break each day, and we recommend that you provide a snack for your child to eat during the break. We also have a water cooler where the children can get a drink at any time.

Q. Do you provide before- and after-care?
A. No. Please drop off your child five minutes before camp begins, and pick them up promptly at the end of the session.

Q. Can my child stay on site during the lunch break?
A. No. We close up the facility during the lunch break, so there would be no one there to supervise your child.

Q. Can parents observe the camps as they do in homeschool classes?
A. No. We use a larger area of the classroom for camps than for homeschool classes, so we don't have room for parent seating. However, if your child has special needs and requires a parent's presence, please let us know when you register and we'll do our best to accommodate you.

Q. How do you handle discipline?
A. At Rock-it Science, we make science fun, and we take safety seriously. In order to ensure a safe and fun experience for all, students are required to follow all instructions. If they fail to do so, they may receive a verbal warning or a time-out. For repeated or serious misbehavior, they may be sent home. If your child does not understand the meaning of “No” or "Stop," he or she is not ready for Rock-it Science.

Q. If my child attends summer camp, will she receive priority if I enroll her in the Fall homeschool class?
A. No. The homeschool class schedule is completely different from the summer schedule. Only students who attend the Spring homeschool session receive priority for the Fall session.
