ECU Summer Science Camp General Policies
Parents with children attending ECU Summer Science Camp must agree to the following policies as indicated by their completion of the Summer Science Camp Contract which will be sent to campers following receipt of registration form and camp fees.
- Camp Fees

All camps are half-day sessions which meet daily for one week at a cost of $120 per student, with the exception of Build Your Own Telescope which costs $185 to cover the cost of materials the camper will get to keep. If you wish for your child to attend more than one camp, please include an additional $120 for each camp. Enroll your child in camps according to the grade level they will begin in the fall.
Cancellations and Refunds
Camp tuition must be paid in full to reserve your child’s slot. Cancellations made 30 days before the beginning of the camp will ensure a full refund of camp tuition. For cancellations by 15 days before the beginning of the camp, ECU will refund 50% of tuition. Cancellations made with less than 15 days before the beginning of the camp, will not be eligible for a refund. If a camper is unable to attend all sessions of camp for any reason, the camper will not receive a refund.
Completion of Forms
A completed and signed contract, health questionnaire, release, and medicine administration (if needed) must be received before the registration is complete.
Forms can be faxed to (252) 328-9371 or mailed to:

Incentive for Whole Day Attendance of Camp:
Parents if you register your child for both the morning and afternoon session on the same week, you will receive a $40.00 discount. So, take advantage of this opportunity; register your child for the morning and afternoon for only $200.00 (this price does not include lunch). Additional lunch prices for the week is still $25.00 or $5.00 per day.
ECU activities and events, including Summer Science Camp, may be photographed or videotaped for publication in ECU informational and promotional materials. Campers may appear in these photographs or videos. If you do NOT wish for your child’s image to be used for this purpose, you MUST notify the summer science camp director in writing ONE WEEK PRIOR to the start of camp.
To receive lunch, campers must register for the lunch program and pay an additional fee with registration. These boxed lunches will be provided through various restaurants located in the Greenville area. The lunch hour lasts from noon until 1 p.m. and is supervised by ECU Camp staff. Campers staying for lunch but not purchasing the lunch program are required to bring a lunch. Refrigerators, microwaves and other kitchen equipment will not be available.
ECU reserves the right to dismiss a camper when the camp director deems dismissal necessary for the best interests of the camp. In the case of behavior problems, ECU will submit one written warning to the parent before dismissing any camper, unless the behavior in question endangers other campers, in which case a camper may be dismissed without a prior written warning to the parent.
ECU Summer Science Camp staff may escort campers from the central program area to other locations on the East Carolina University campus and surrounding areas as part of the regular ECU Summer Camp activities.
A parent or guardian must authorize up to three individuals to pick-up their camper. Authorized individuals will be required to present valid identification to pick-up any child from camp. Tags will be given to parents at the beginning of the week to make the Drop-off process more efficient.
