Camp Fees

Information applies to: UNC | SciVentures

At its original site on the UNC campus, Morehead offers half-day camps for children in grades K–8, and each camp lasts one week (Monday–Friday). If you'd like for your child to attend camp throughout the day at this site, register for two camps -- one in the morning, one in the afternoon.

Morehead's SciVentures program (for grades 6–8 only) is a full-day program. This program is offered in Chapel Hill. For 2014, SciVentures will offer two different programs: "Morehead Field Station" at the Carolina Center for Educational Excellence, adjacent to Smith Middle School, and "Journey Inside the Cell" on the UNC Campus.

Discounted camp tuition is a benefit of Morehead membership. If you aren't a Morehead member, consider joining today.

Please note that the July 4 week (June 30-July 3) is a four-day camp week; tuition and fees are adjusted for that week.

All tuition and fees are per week.



Your total camp fee includes tuition for each camp, plus the cost of any extended care services you have reserved.

A $50 deposit for each camp is required at the time of registration; deposits are applied to the total camp fee. A deposit for a camp is nonrefundable unless Morehead cancels that camp.

If you register before April 14, 2014, you may pay a $50 deposit per camp to reserve space for your child OR you may pay the total camp fee when you register. If you choose to pay only a deposit, you must pay the balance of your camp fee by April 30, 2014.

If you register on or after April 14, 2014, you must pay the total camp fee when you register.

Cancellations and refunds

Please note these cancellation deadlines and refund policies for Morehead Summer Science Camps:

If you cancel a camp registration on or before April 21, 2014, you’ll forfeit the $50 deposit but receive a refund for other fees you have paid Morehead for that camp.

If you cancel after April 21, 2014, but before May 19, 2014, you’ll forfeit the $50 deposit but receive a refund for one-half of other fees you have paid Morehead for that camp.

If you cancel on or after May 19, 2014, you will not receive any refund. Instead, your camp fees (less the $50 deposit) will be treated as a tax-deductible contribution to the Morehead Summer Science Camps scholarship fund.

If Morehead cancels the camp, you’ll receive a refund of the total camp fee (including the deposit).


If you are interested in a need-based scholarship, please contact Morehead's Summer Science Camps office at 919-843-7334 or prior to registering.

Morehead welcomes donations to the Summer Science Camps scholarship fund, which provides opportunities for children with documented financial need to attend camp. Scholarships are limited and may not be available for all camps.

If you would like to contribute to this fund -- or if you know a child who would benefit from a camp scholarship -- please contact the camp office at 919-843-7334 or
