DeKalb Co School Break camps 2019-2020

DeKalb County Schools Break Camps


Registration is open! Partial or full weeks are available.

North Decatur Presbyterian Church, 611 Medlock Road, Decatur GA 30033

All camps are ideal for boys and girls, repeat campers and first-time campers. Activities will be tailored to individual needs in flexible groups. No prior knowledge is necessary but advanced learners will also be mentally engaged through sophisticated small group discussions. 

Each camp is hands-on and full of engaging activities. Many projects are brought home by the camper after they are made. Activities include STEM (science technology engineering mathematics) topics, matter investigations, chemical reactions, engineering challenges, STEAM (STEM + Art) and Tinker Labs. Sample activities are marble roller coasters, Sphero robots, Alka-rockets, slime, dry ice, UV bracelets, Diet Coke and Mentos fountains and 2L bottle rockets. We know just how to strike the right balance between work and play. Our camps feel like a Science birthday party!

Social/behavioral/learning needs

We keep an excellent staff : camper ratio of approximately 1:10. However, this camp is only appropriate for campers who can consistently work in small groups and can follow multi-step directions. This camp is NOT appropriate for situations in which a camper needs a smaller staff : camper ratio than we are realistically able to provide. 

Cancellations and changes

Please be advised: for planning purposes, we strictly adhere to the policies. We do not offer credit/refund/exchange for unused camp or before and aftercare for ANY reason including camper illness. No transfers. 

Summer camp:

  • Before June 1: Cancellations and changes must be made at least 30 days prior to the first day of camp ($50/camper per session is non-refundable, $25 per camper administrative fee for each change, changes are subject to availability). Please limit changes to ONE change per camper. Sorry, for our sanity multiple changes are strictly prohibited. 

  • June 1 and after: No changes or cancellations. 

School year break camp cancellation and changes:

  • Cancellations and changes must be made at least 15 days prior to break camps. $50 per camper per week ($10/day) is nonrefundable. Changes in camp sessions may be accommodated as space allows. $25 per camper administrative fee for each change, requests must be made at least 15 days prior to break camps. Please limit changes to ONE change per camper. Sorry, for our sanity multiple changes are strictly prohibited. 

Behavior expectations

Behavior is rarely a problem as we have experienced supervisors and instructors, engaging activities, great campers and fun counselors. Any camper who endangers themselves or others, has behavior that is not conducive to the camp environment, or has difficulty following rules will be removed immediately, without additional warnings, without refund/credit/exchange/transfer of ANY fees, and will not be allowed to return to the Science of Fun. Please note: Historically, siblings have more behavior problems than any other campers. Siblings are held to the same high behavior expectations as all other campers; siblings who fight and argue will be removed under these same guidelines and will not be allowed to return to the Science of Fun.
