  • Camps Refund Policy

    Please note that refunds are not given for camps, camp-ins, or workshops. If for some reason a child needs to withdraw from or cannot attend a session that they have been registered for, an Arizona Science Center Credit will be issued. This credit is good for one year from the date of issue and may be applied to any camps, camp-ins, workshops, or towards an Arizona Science Center membership.

    You are responsible for registering your child for the correct age group. In order to maintain a safe environment and proper camper to instructor ratio, it is necessary to limit the number of campers per group. Signing up for an incorrect age group will not guarantee their placement in an already sold out camp.
