FAQs and Camp Policies

Camp Overview

Our summer camps introduce the basics of entrepreneurship to kids aged 7-12 through fun and engaging activities.  Each camp runs for one week in duration from 9am-3pm, Monday through Friday.

 

We will be inside for a good part of the day, however, we will be venturing outside for some games, activities, and lunch.  Please ensure your child packs the appropriate items needed for weather conditions such as suitable outdoor shoes, and a jacket. The bluff can be windy. Apply sunscreen before arriving at camp and pack sunscreen to re-apply.

Pick up / Drop off

You may drop your child off as early as 8:45 am. Pick up is by 3:15 pm. Camp starts at 9 am and ends at 3 pm. If before/after care would be helpful, please let us know. If there is enough need we will consider offering it. Adults 18 years and older and are listed by parents are allowed to pick up a child. A driver’s license will be required.

Refunds & Cancellations
  • Cancellations within 16 days of the first day of camp will receive a full refund.

  • Cancellations within 15 days of camp starting will receive a refund less $50.

  • Cancellations within 7 days of camp starting, no refund will be issued but you are invited to choose another week that has openings available. IF we are able to fill your child’s spot we will happily give a full refund.

Minimum / Maximum Registration

Each week of camp needs a minimum of 12 kids for the camp to happen. In the event that a week doesn’t have enough students registered, we will ask if your child is able to attend a different week. If he/she is unable, a full refund will be given. If we think this may happen we will give you as much notice as possible.

 

If a week of camp is full, please join the waitlist. If someone cancels we will let you know!

Absentees

Due to the format of the camp, there is not a way to make up missed days. We will do our best to bring your child up to speed on what they missed. Camps will not be pro-rated.

Lunch & Snacks

Kids should bring their own lunch and water bottle. We will provide a healthy snack each day! You will be notified before camp starts if there is an allergy concern.  Lunch will be outside on the bluff weather permitting.

Behavior / Standard of Conduct

All camp participants are expected to follow the Spark. Ignite. Launch! Learning Academy participant guidelines, and to interact in a positive and appropriate manner with campmates and camp leaders. Negative behavior that impacts others physically or emotionally and/or conduct that is disruptive or deemed unaccepted may result in dismissal or removal from camp at the discretion of Spark. Ignite. Launch! Learning Academy instructors.

Lemonade Stand Challenge on Friday

Over the course of the one week camp, children will work towards the Lemonade Stand Challenge which will be held on Friday. Campers will be selling their lemonade to the public and proceeds will benefit a local community charity that the kids agree upon. Kids will be working in two teams, and each team will run the stand for one hour each, between 11am-1pm. Your child will be bringing home a few flyers to help spread the word and let friends, family, and neighbors know to come by and support the kids. 

 

The kids will be innovating their lemonade stands with berries and/or other ingredients. At the end of the day, we will have a small party with treats and snacks to celebrate their hard work and charitable donation. We hope that you are able to join us.

Unplugged Camp

Cell phones, iPads, etc. won't be needed for camp activities. In the rare case that they are, we will provide them. We want the kids to be present, engage in conversation and the activities, and therefore ask that you not send your child to camp with a device. If you feel that your child needs one, there will be a basket for all devices to be stored during camp. You can call or text us at any time should you need to get a message to your child immediately. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
