About Our Camp Staff and Ratios
Our camp director is a state certified, experienced educator. We recruit top level talent from Birmingham area universities. Our summer camp instructors are energetic college students and school teachers interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Education or Business fields. Our selective hiring process includes an intensive training process which includes full background checks and CPR/First Aid certification. With an average camp ratio of 12-14 students per instructor your camper will experience a great blend of small group instruction and self lead discovery.
Social Emotional Learning
New for 2020! Research has confirmed that social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children acquire and effectively apply the knowledge and skills necessary to understand and manage their emotions, set and achieve goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions. This year we’ve integrated these SEL skills into each camp theme we offer. Campers will participate in numerous character education lessons filled with tons of hands-on and mindful activities that encourage them to build important social-emotional skills.
A nonrefundable $50 deposit is required to hold your space. We have very limited enrollment. Your $50 deposit will be applied to your week of camp. Your remaining balance is due exactly two weeks before the start of your camp. Campers not paid in full before the due date will be subject to camp withdrawal. You are also more than welcome to pay your full balance during registration.
The ability to register will close once the camp session is full. All additional registrations will be added to the session waitlist.
All $50 security deposits are non-refundable. Camps must be cancelled 10 days before the start of camp for additional camp payments to be returned. Any camps not meeting the minimum participant requirement are subject to cancellation.
All girls must bring a nut-free lunch and water bottle.
