Camp FAQ

Can I use my Individual membership for early camp registration and discounts?

You must have a Family or Grandparent Membership to qualify for camp benefits. Individual memberships offer benefits to the individual member only and not family members, and therefore do not apply. Children may not purchase individual memberships, but must be registered as part of a family membership.

When does member registration start?

Member registration opens online only on February 20th at 7:00 a.m. There will be no walk-in registrations that day as the Center will be closed for President’s Day. We will have staff available until 12 noon. by phone and e-mail to assist you with your online registration.

What discount do members receive?

Members receive a 10% discount on camps. There are no discounts for lunch bunch or early drop-off.

How will members access the online registration?

Members will receive a private link by e-mail with access to camp registration. This link will be sent on Friday, February 17th. If you do not receive the link, please contact us at 864-355-8925 or to have the link re-sent.

Members must set up their user registration on our website using the email address used to purchase your membership. We highly recommend that you do this and be sure it is working prior to February 17th. This is particularly important if you are renewing your membership prior to camp registration. Set-up your user registration here.

Members: be sure to sign in to receive your member discount. (You will see the Sign In button on the upper left corner of your screen.) Enter the email you used to set up your user registration and password. If you have forgotten the email address you used to register, please contact us for that information. We cannot recover your password. The only way to do so is to click on the Forgot Your Password link and have it emailed to you. When you have successfully signed in, you will see your email address in the upper left corner of your screen (where the Sign In button originally appeared). This is the only way to receive your Member Discount at check-out.

How does the online registration work?

You can register for all of your children on one order, and with one payment.

Members: be sure to sign in to your account to receive your member discount.

Can I still come in and register in person?

The first day of member registration is online only. The Center will be closed that day. We will have staff available by phone and e-mail until 12 noon to assist you with online registration questions or issues.

We prefer online registrations but will accept walk-ins at Symmes Hall of Science at the top of the mountain between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. We cannot accept onsite registrations after 2:15 p.m.

Can I mail in my registration?

If you mail in your registration, you must write a separate check for each camp in which you wish to register. We are unable to process mail-in registrations unless the payment is correct. Separate checks ensure that we can register you for the camps that are available immediately without having to wait for corrected payment. We cannot accept credit card payments on mailed registrations.

Can I call you and pay with my credit card?

No, we cannot accept credit card payments over the phone. For that reason, we do not accept any phoned camp registrations.

When does public registration open?

Public registration will begin on February 23rd.

I want to register my child for a camp that is outside his/her completed grade range. How do I do that?

Camp grade levels are determined by more than academic ability and we rarely allow campers to register for camps outside those designed for their current grade level. To request an Age Waiver Form, please contact Lisa Phillips at 864-355-8925 or Students who are registered in camps outside their grade levels without prior permission will be removed and refund policy may apply.

What if I need to change the camp(s) I’ve registered for?

We cannot “transfer” registrations from one camp to another. To change camps, you will need to register and pay for the new camp and then request a cancellation for the original camp.

If you have registered for the wrong session of a camp with multiple sessions, please contact us to have your registration moved to the correct session (pending space availability in your requested session).
