Fee details: Camp fee is $300 for one-week camp (there are no other fees). Registration fee beyond this point will be $350. Registrations will be shut down one day before each week’s camps. Last minute registration fee will be even higher and we will accept only if there is space & logistically possible to accommodate – email [email protected] for pre-approval & payment mechanism. Manual processing fee for cancellations or discount adjustments is $25. Prorated amount will be refunded for cancellations after the camp start date.
(Discount codes for immediate families of current UTD faculty/staff/students: UTDFAMILY – UTD email address should be used for registration, immediate families of UTD alumni: UTDALUMNI – need to provide degree and graduation details during registration, low income families that get reduced rate meals at schools need to send the proof after registration to [email protected] to get discount code to use, School teachers can send the copy of school ID badge to [email protected] to get discount code for them to attend the camps – it is NOT for their families. Also, we do not offer any multi-camp or sibling discounts.)
See utdallas.edu/k12/directions for driving directions to ECSS building in UT Dallas campus. We provide the PCs/laptops for level 1 camps – camper should be rising 4th grader to attend our camps – younger ones cannot be accommodated. For level 2 or higher level camps, Windows laptop or MacBook is required, unless explicit instructions are given in the camp description. Any typical laptop will do for most camps. You can buy a decent laptop for ~$200 now – HP Stream 11 laptop is a good example. Limited # of loaner laptops are available & they can be reserved in advance by paying $25 alongwith the registration.
In the interest of making our camps more accessible to families, we will have additional buffer time for drop-off and pick-up before and after camp hours. Morning sessions start at 9am – you can drop your children as early as 8:30am. Afternoon sessions end at 4pm – you can pick-up your children as late as 5pm. With 1-day advance notice to [email protected], you can drop off earlier or pickup late. It will be $5 for every 30 minutes. Payment is due at the time of drop-off or pickup. Without the advance notification, late pickup fee will be $1 per minute beyond 5pm.
We will serve snacks and meals for all campers as long as they don’t have any food allergies. We will provide complete supervision from sign-in to sign-out (one instructor will accompany the kids to restrooms as well, considering the “open” nature of college buildings) including the lunch-hour. Parents are required to sign-in and sign-out in the respective camp rooms.
HS* – High School version (same content is covered in bit faster pace, then more examples/advanced stuff may be covered). Note that there will NOT be any coding camps during the week of July 4th.
