Camp Fees

Information applies to: RTP

Morehead offers only full-day camp sessions at its RTP site for children in grades K–8. Each camp session lasts one week (Monday–Friday) and includes a morning camp curriculum and an afternoon camp curriculum bundled together.

Morehead's camps at RTP follow a different schedule and are priced differently than Morehead's camps in Chapel Hill because the RTP camps use non-UNC facilities. Campers at the RTP site cannot register for "morning only" or "afternoon only" camps. In addition, camp fees at RTP automatically include extended care in both morning and afternoon.

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

Because a one-week camp session at the RTP site includes a morning camp curriculum and an afternoon camp bundled together for one price, the Morehead member discount for RTP camps is $30 for the one-week session. This discount is reflected in the rates above.

 

Payments

A $50 deposit for each camp session 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).

Scholarships

If you are interested in a need-based scholarship, please contact Morehead's Summer Science Camps office at 919-843-7334 or mpsc_camps@unc.edu 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 mpsc_camps@unc.edu.
