We will notify parents in writing regarding any minor falls or scrapes during the day. If there is a head injury, Ideaventions will contact the parents immediately.
Exploration can be demanding and it is important that Explorers have the energy to get them through the day. Please ensure all campers eat a nutritious breakfast before coming to our center and they bring a snack to eat mid-morning and a nutritious bag lunch. We have a refrigerator if his/her lunch requires refrigeration.
Please note that we are a nut free facility. Please pack a lunch that is nut free as we sometimes have campers that have life-threatening allergies.

Explorers are expected to be helpful, courteous and to try their best at all times. Parents please review with your campers the importance of being attentive and respectful to instructors and other Explorers during this camp so that this may be a memorable and fun experience for all.
ideaventions™ reserves the right to dismiss, without refund, any Explorer who is consistently disrespectful or endangers him/herself, their leaders or other Explorers due to inappropriate or unsafe conduct.
We will email parents, who have registered the Friday before the start of camp to welcome you. This email will contain the topics for the week and the locations that we will be visiting on what day, as well as your leader's emergency contact information.
We encourage parents to join us earlier on Friday at 3 pm to see some of what your Explorers have learned and created during the week.
Each day we will also email you a list of activities your Explorer has participated in that day.
Our primary goal is for Explorers to have a fun, memorable experience and share and nurture their love for science, technology and engineering. We want to offer children the opportunity to express their creativity through the multi-sensory exploration of the world, big and small.
