Morehead Planetarium and Science Center remains committed to the health and safety of our campers, guests, and staff. In addition to requiring all campers and staff to wear a mask, we have strong policies and protocols which include:

  • Hosting fewer camp sessions
  • Limiting the number of campers per session (10)
  • Leading sessions outdoors when possible and most appropriate
  • Increasing cleaning protocols
  • Leaving doors and windows open to increase air exchange when possible

Parents can also expect ongoing communication related to health and safety precautions before and during camps when appropriate.

If you have specific questions, please contact our team at scienceinthesummer@unc.edu.

Registration is a two-step process. All steps must be completed for valid registration. Sessions that are not open will not appear in the registration system.

1. Online Registration Form

Online registration is through Active Network. Only available sessions will appear on the registration webpage. Sessions that are not open or are filled will not appear.

  • Click “Register Now” button at the top of this page.
  • Complete online registration form

  • You will receive a follow-up email from “GSK Science in the Summer” that includes the link to the participant release forms after the registration form is submitted.
  • Complete participant release forms within 72 hours of completing the registration information form. (Incomplete forms will result in cancellations.)
  • If your child is added to the waitlist, you will receive the release form once they are enrolled in a session. You will have 72 hours from the email notification of enrollment to complete the release form. Once a child is confirmed for a session, they will be removed from other session waitlists.

You will receive a confirmation email after all forms have been reviewed, up to 21 days after submission. Failure to complete forms will result in the cancellation of the registration. Staff cannot confirm registration by phone or email inquiry due to the high volume of registrations.

  • A child can only participate in one session per summer (in-person or virtual).
  • Registrations are accepted in the order they are received. Each session will include 10 additional waitlist spaces.
  • All information provided in registration forms must be complete and accurate.

  • Only parents or legal guardians can complete the participant release forms. Digital signatures must include the parent or guardian’s first and last name. The link to your child’s release form will be sent via email after the registration is submitted. The information on the release form must match the information on the registration form in order to be valid.

SIS reserves the right to cancel a registration if policies have been violated.

After the initial spaces are filled, registrations for a session will automatically be placed on the waitlist. A child can be on multiple waitlists. All forms must be filled out for each session registration.

If an opening occurs, you will receive an email that includes the release form after the child is enrolled in a session. You will have 72 hours from the email notification of enrollment to complete the release form. Once a child is confirmed for a session, the child will be removed from remaining session waitlists.
