Camp FAQ

What is the cancellation policy for program registration?

Refunds can only be issued up to two weeks before the date of the camp, and will incur a 5% cancellation fee. To cancel registration, email info@eurekasciencemuseum.org with the full name of the child, camp name, and dates for the program you wish to cancel.

How does the waitlist work?

Our program waitlists are first-come, first-served. When a spot becomes available, an email goes out to everyone on the waitlist at the same time. You must log on to the dashboard and register for the program to reserve the available space. If you log on to register and are unable to - someone else has already registered, the camp is full again, and you will remain on the waitlist.

What is Lunch Lizard?

Lunch Lizard is a mobile food program that provides all kids with a free lunch (Monday-Thursday), on-site at EUREKA!. Campers are welcome to bring a packed lunch or utilize this program. The daily menu can be found here. This program is not available on Fridays or the following weeks: July 4, or August 1.

How can I request my camper to be grouped with their friends?

For some camps, we split the registered group into different classrooms for the week. If you'd like to request your camper to be grouped with their friends, please let us know by 12pm the Wednesday before camp starts (email camps@eurekasciencemuseum.org). We send weekly reminders in the parent email, and are unable to change rosters after this weekly deadline.

For any additional help or questions please contact us at info@eurekasciencemuseum.org or by phone during business hours at 970-254-1626.
