ABOUT KIDS SCIENCE CAMP

The Heritage Group began Kids Science Camp in the summer of 2014 to help develop a love and passion for science in children. The primary mission is investing in our future leaders and helping them tackle big problems by learning how to think creatively. Science education also fuels curiosity and provides children with valuable ideas, skills, and potential future career choices --- hopefully within The Heritage Group of companies!
Registration is open March 1-31, 2022.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

The camp is open to the direct dependents (ages 8–10 or 11–12) of THG employees. Attendees must fall within the specified age range at the start of camp. We reserve the right to verify legal dependent status.

Due to demand, attendance is limited to one program per child during each age range, 8–10 and 11–12.  Prior participation in Kids Science Camp at Home will not count against your child’s eligibility to attend camp in person this year.

We have partnered with The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis to host camp on their campus. All campers are welcome to participate in the Indianapolis program.

Parents/guardians are responsible for arranging all transportation to and from The Children’s Museum campus.

Parents/guardians are responsible for all travel-related expenses.

Our goal is to allow every camper to participate in camp to the best of their abilities, and the museum has many accessibility accommodations in place. This includes creating sensory maps of each exhibit, providing information about the noise levels in specific areas, and identifying quiet spaces around the building. Additional information about accessibility is available on The Children’s Museum’s website:

 

  • Review accessibility information here.
  • Review sensory resources here.

Additionally, we welcome the parents or respite providers of children with special needs to remain onsite for the duration of camp. Information about exhibit visits and transitions will be provided in advance to aid in the identification of potential triggers or challenges. If your child is selected as a camper this year, you’ll have the opportunity to share any concerns or special needs in order to initiate a conversation regarding accommodation.

We will be following protocols established by The Children’s Museum. Those requirements may change based on the current health situation and CDC guidelines. Stay up to date here.

Due to demand, we ask that each child who registers for camp attend for the duration. If your child cannot attend all three days due to vacation or other scheduling conflicts, we ask that you decline registration to allow another child the opportunity to participate.
