Camp Fees

Learning about planets at Summer Science Camp.

Camp Fees | SciVentures Fees | Payments & Refunds 

All camp and SciVentures fees are per week, Monday-Friday. Morehead members receive a 10% discount on every camp and SciVentures registration. If you are not a Morehead member, you can become a member online.

Extended care is available for morning (beginning at 7:30 a.m.) and afternoon (ending at 6 p.m.). Additional fees apply for extended care.

Camp Fees

Morehead offers camps for children in grades K–5. Each camp is a half-day experience: Morning camps are 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and afternoon camps are 1-4 p.m. You can register for both a morning camp and an afternoon camp to create a full-day experience for your child.

In 2018, all camps are based at Morehead Planetarium and Science Center (250 E. Franklin Street, Chapel Hill).

Camp Fees

  • Half-day, one-week camp: $170
  • Half-day, one-week camp with Morehead member discount: $153

*Note: for Coding: 101 and Coding: 201 there will be a materials fee of $40.

SciVentures Fees

Morehead offers SciVentures enrichment science programming for children in grades 6-8 only. SciVentures is a full-day experience: 9 a.m.-4 p.m. In 2018, we will be offering three different courses for SciVentures. Please note that the location for two of these camps (Drone Zone and ROVing) will be at the Carolina Center for Educational Excellence (9201 Seawell School Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27516).

SciVentures Program Fees

  • Full-day, one-week program: $450

Payments & Refunds


A $50 deposit for each camp is required at the time of registration. Camp deposits are nonrefundable unless Morehead cancels the camp.

The balance of each camp fee must be paid by April 30, 2018. (If you register on or after this date, you must pay the full camp fee at the time of registration.)


  • If you cancel your registration for a camp on or before April 16, 2018, you’ll receive a refund of fees paid for that camp minus the deposit.
  • If you cancel after April 16, 2018, but before May 14, 2018, you’ll receive a refund for one-half of fees paid for that camp minus the deposit.
  • If you cancel on or after May 14, 2018, you will not receive any refund for that camp. Instead, your fees (minus the deposit) will be designated as a tax-deductible contribution to the Morehead Summer Science Camps scholarship fund.

If Morehead cancels a camp, you’ll receive a full refund of fees paid for that camp (including the deposit). Morehead reserves the right to cancel a camp if enrollment is low.
