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 May 15, 2020. (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 15, 2020, you’ll receive a refund of fees paid for that camp minus the deposit.
  • If you cancel after April 15, 2020, but before May 15, 2020, you’ll receive a refund for one-half of fees paid for that camp minus the deposit.
  • If you cancel on or after May 16, 2020, 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.

  • 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.
  • If you are a current student, staff or faculty member of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill you are eligible for a 7% discount on all camps.

*Please Note: Only one camp discount code can be used at check out.
