Policies & Precautionary Guidelines for Summer Camps

Based on guidelines provided by the state of SC, the CDC and Greenville County Schools, we have established the following safety protocols for our summer camp programs this year:

  • We have reduced the size of all camps to allow for physical distance in the classrooms.
  • Only one camp will occupy a classroom during each week (no shared spaces). Students will have one assigned seat in their camp location. When possible, students will not share supplies.
  • Classrooms and supplies will be sanitized each day at the conclusion of camp.
  • Mask Policy (as of 6/1/2021):
    • Students will be seated 6 feet apart when possible. This will allow students who do not have mask waivers to remove their masks (if they choose) while seated. Per the directive of the State Board of Education, masks are requested during arrival and dismissal times and while in the common areas of the buildings.
    • If you would like for your child to be exempt from the mask requirements per Governor McMaster’s executive order, we must have the SCDHEC opt-out form completed and signed by a parent. Forms are available here: https://scdhec.gov/sites/default/files/Library/D-4286.pdf
    • Even if you have completed a DHEC form for your school, we must have a form on file at Roper Mountain Science Center in order to exempt you from the mask policy. All students riding in buses to field trips are required to wear masks per federal mandate.
    • Staff has the option to opt-out of mask wearing if they meet Greenville County Schools criteria.
  • Water fountains will remain off; students will receive a reusable water bottle to fill at water bottle filling stations.
  • Students are expected to adhere to hygiene protocols (handwashing and hand sanitizer) and respiratory etiquette (cover mouth with tissue or elbow when sneezing).
  • Students who exhibit symptoms of illness should not attend camp. Please notify us if your child has been exposed to COVID-19 or has been told to quarantine by a medical professional or public health agency.



Summer Camp 2021 FAQs

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 Monday, March 15th at 7:00am. Staff will be available by phone and email to assist you with your online registration.
What discount do members receive?
Members receive a 10% discount on camps. There are no discounts for extended lunch stay or early drop-off.
How will members access the online registration?

Members must be signed into their accounts in order to access camp registration.

It is very important that members:
1) Have a current membership
2) Be able to sign in to that account on our website.

We strongly encourage you to test your membership log-in before 12noon on Friday, 3/12. We cannot guarantee that any issues not resolved by that time can be addressed in time for you to get the camps you want.

To make sure you can successfully access your member account, click on the link below and follow the instructions:
Member Test Link


If you are not signed in to your account or your membership is expired, you will get this error message:


The Sign In option only appears in places where you can put items in your cart. It is in the upper right hand corner of the screen. When you are successfully signed in, you will see your email address and a Log Out option in that corner.

You cannot see our membership expiration date on our website. If you need to know when your membership expires, please contact us at 864.355.8906.

To troubleshoot:
1) Be sure you are signed in to your account. On the upper right hand corner of the screen, you should see your email address. If you don’t see it there, click Sign In and enter your username and password.
2) If your membership is expired. Go to the Membership page, renew your membership and try again. (NOTE: Be sure you are signed in to your current account so that it renews your membership instead of creating a new one.)

If you are signed in and are sure your membership is current, and you are still getting this error message, please contact us as soon as possible.
Audrey Pyle: apyle@greenville.k12.sc.us or 864-355-8902
Lisa Phillips: liphilli@greenville.k12.sc.us or 864-355-8925

PLEASE NOTE: If your membership is current when you test, but expires prior to March 15th, you will not be able to register for camps! Please be sure your membership will be current on March 15th!

Can I still come in and register in person?
Due to current COVID-19 protocols, all registration is online only.
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 camp registrations via phone.
When does public registration open?
Public registration will begin on Wednesday, March 17th.
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 liphilli@greenville.k12.sc.us. 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).
What if I need to cancel my camp?

Cancellation/Refund Policy

  • Cancellation requests must be made in writing by email to Lisa Phillips at liphilli@greenville.k12.sc.us.
    Please include: Child's name, camp you wish to cancel, and reason for cancellation.
  • Verbal/telephone cancellation requests are not accepted. All requests must be made in writing.
  • Please do not mail cancellation requests. Refund policy applies to the date the request is received, not the date mailed. We are not responsible for delivery delays.
  • Cancellation requests made 21 days or more prior to camp start date will receive a 50% refund. No refunds will be made within 21 days of camp start date.
  • Camps may not be rescheduled except within different sessions of the same camp. To change camps, you must register and pay in full for the new camp and then request a cancellation for the original camp.
  • For camps paid by cash or check, allow 3 to 4 weeks to receive refunds by check. Credit card refunds are processed within 3 to 5 business days of cancellation request.
