Frequently Asked Questions

What time is drop-off and pick-up?

Drop off for camp begins at 8:45 AM with pick up beginning at 3:45 PM. Extended care options are also available at an additional cost to suit your schedule. If your child will be arriving late or picked up early please send us prior notification via email to info@stemminds.com.

The 4 to 7 year old camp is located upstairs. Parents are asked to accompany their child while using the stairs and make sure their child is using the stairs safely (holding on to the railing, watching where they are going, and walking slowly).

Will my child be going outside during camp?
We will be taking our campers to Chapman Park which is a 7 minutes walk from STEM Minds Aurora location. We have taken a permit from the Town of Aurora to use the space for an hour in the afternoon. We will organize outdoor games and activities with campers so everyone gets to participate and enjoy outdoor time. Our facilities are fully air conditioned, so during hot or rainy days indoor fun will be organized. We have added board games, bean toss, soccer and hockey rod table sets for play and more. If you do not wish your child to go to the park, please send us a written request at info@stemminds.com
Do I need to provide lunch for my child?
Campers are required to bring their own nut-free lunch, snacks, and water bottle with them each day. At STEM Minds we provide a NUT AWARE environment. For more information on our Nut Aware Policy, please visit www.stemminds.com.
What do I do if my child is sick?
For safety of other campers, if your child is exhibiting symptoms of illness please keep them home for the day and please contact us via phone or email to notify the staff that they will not be attending. In the case that a camper becomes ill during camp hours, the parent will be notified by the staff. 
What if someone else will be picking my child up from camp?
When registering your child, please list any authorized pickups in the “Order Notes” section. If you need to add someone to the authorized pickup list after registering, please send us an email at info@stemminds.com.
My children have been in your camp before. Will they be doing new activities?

Our camp themes are designed to provide a focus during the day. We always introduce new activities during our camps. If students have used a tool before, they will always be provided with choices for different tools and activities so either they are building deep expertise in a tool / topic or just exploring and broadening their learning experience. We encourage our campers to speak up and advocate for their learning experience.

If I don’t want my child to do an activity or have preferences, how will these be addressed?
Camp experience is a joint collaboration between parents and our staff. We want children to have a positive learning experience. Since we don’t see your child on a daily basis, we look for your guidance and feedback on what experiences you would like for your child and we will do our very best to accommodate. Please feel free to send us an email at info@stemminds.com with your request for accommodation and we will work with you to make that happen. You can also update the notes section during your registration process so we are aware of any medical conditions and other preferences for consideration.
What safety protocols are in place for my child to have a safe learning experience.

STEM Minds takes pride in operating a student centric learning environment. We have health and safety protocols in place. Our staff are all FIRST AID Trained and have Police Vulnerable Sector Checks (PVSC) as required by law. We maintain a maximum of 1:8 – staff to student ratio to ensure we can support the individual student needs. We have behaviour policies in place to ensure all children feel safe. We encourage students to advocate for themselves so we can support them in their individual needs. Our partnership with parents is pivotal for this positive experience.

If a child gets injured outdoors, we will communicate and work with their parent or guardian on finding the best method to bring their child back to camp. If there is a serious injury (e.g., head or spine injury, severe bleeding, seizure, etc.), an ambulance will be called to the location where the injury occurred. A staff member will accompany the child to the hospital if the parent or guardian is not at the scene.
