Opportunities for Rising 9th - 12th Graders!

Duke Energy Logo

Duke Energy Water Science Camp

Rising 9th - 12th graders are invited to join us for a week of field-based study designed specifically for teens!

Field Work

If you're a rising 9th - 12th grade student interested in a career in ecology, biology, chemistry, or conservation, we've got the perfect opportunity for you! Grab your waders and gloves and join us for a week-long camp where we'll study the animals and water chemistry that tell us about our ecosystems' health!

Using scientific water chemistry techniques and various biological sampling methods -- including minnow traps, emergence traps, dip nets, and leaf litter kits -- we'll study the biological and chemical makeup of our waterways. We'll apply the techniques we learn to a variety of habitats ranging from sites right here at the Greensboro Science Center to locations across the Piedmont! Not only will participants gain knowledge of science and research techniques they can use in their science careers, but the data collected will also contribute to a long-term study of ecosystem health at the GSC!

To participate, students must submit a completed application. The week’s fee is $125, and scholarships are available.

June 24 - 28, 9am - 3pm
July 29 - August 2, 9am - 3pm

Add-Ons

Lunch Bunch

Lunch supervision is available to Summer Science Camp participants and can be added to any morning camp. It is necessary to add lunch if your child has both a morning and an afternoon camp. Please be sure that your child brings a nut-free bag lunch that does not need to be refrigerated. Children must keep up with their own lunches, so be sure to label your child’s container. Cold beverages are available from the lunchroom vending machines. Lunch Bunch is supervised by GSC staff. Children will be taken to their afternoon sessions or readied for pickup at the car line afterwards. Register for Lunch Bunch as an option with morning camps. Lunch Bunch is offered the first and last weeks of camp.

Lunch Bunch is included for the 9am - 3 pm camps.

Extended Day

Extended Day sessions are a relaxing way to end a day of exciting science adventure. We’ll have a supervised room and provide museum/zoo explorations, games, books, and our favorite science movies during this unstructured period. Extended Days are offered as a service to meet your family’s busy schedules. Pick up your child any time before 4:30 p.m. Register for Extended Day as an option with afternoon camps. Extended Day is not offered the first nor last week of camps.

FAQs

Check your Greensboro Science Center membership card and look for the expiration date printed on it. Your member number/ID is printed under the bar code.

We cannot process a new/renewed membership at time of camp registration. If you need a new/renewed membership you can click here or stop by our information desk.

The camper and adult guardian who is the contact must be a GSC member. A grandparent can register a grandchild but the adult bringing the child to camp must also be a GSC member to gain access to the GSC.

  • The registration button will not go live until the prescribed time. If you come to the page early, you must refresh the page to see it.
  • Multiple registrants are placed in a queue and transactions occur one at a time. You will be notified when it is your turn to complete the registration.
  • You are not guaranteed classes until you complete the transaction.
We run repeats of most camp sessions and LEGO® camps. We want to ensure as many children as possible are allowed the opportunity to learn about the subject of their choice. Plus, if you register twice, you have already learned the material!

If you have a reciprocal membership from another institution you cannot register as a member for programs here.

Participants should register according to their age before the class begins. Your child should be the required age by the first day of the camp.

While we do not place younger students in older classes, we sometimes make exceptions and place older students in younger classes; call Courtenay Vass at 336-288-3769 ext. 1389 if you have questions.

If any camp you’d like to register for is full or you’d like a different LEGO® session, please consider being placed on a waiting list. Send an email to camps@greensboroscience.org with the subject line “waiting list.” Include the camp(s) you’d like, name and age (at camp date) of your child, your name and your daytime phone number(s). Children are placed on the list in the order in which they are received. We get openings all summer as plans change, so waiting lists do work!

Use your user ID to check your classes at any time and add more to your account. If you do not remember your user ID, you can still add classes as a new user just as easily and effectively.

Camps are offered as morning sessions (9am - 12pm) or afternoon sessions (1 - 3pm; some LEGO® camps 1 - 4pm). Select a morning and afternoon for a full day. If you choose morning and afternoon sessions, also register for lunch supervision (offered as an add-on as you register). Additionally, we offer extended day registration (3 - 4:30pm) as an add-on to afternoon camps.

Our summer staff signs in all campers at an outdoor parking lane, just past our main building. We are generally in place 15 minutes before camp starts.

Alternately, students may be walked in and dropped off at their classrooms 5 minutes prior to class. You will need to show your membership card each time you enter the GSC. Children may not enter or exit the building without a parent, guardian or GSC staff member.

Our summer instructor staff is comprised of certified teachers from Guilford County and surrounding communities, as well as environmental education professionals. Our LEGO® camps also have our techno-whiz college students as instructors under the guidance of our Robotics Coordinator. Paid assistants and our summer “teen corps” volunteers lend a hand in classes.

Clothing should be comfortable for indoor and outdoor, hands-on activities. Closed-toe shoes and socks are suggested (required for Animal Care Camp and field courses). No flip-flops or roller sneakers allowed. Please leave all electronics at home. Label snacks and lunches. A water bottle is recommended.

All morning camps take a snack break. Only 3 hour LEGO® afternoon camps take a snack break. Please send a nut-free snack and drink (water is great!). Lunch Bunch students will need to bring a (non-refrigerated) bag lunch and drink.

Discipline issues are rare, but do occur. Initially, instructors will discuss the behavior with the camper. If the behavior persists, the camper will spend “quiet time” in the Education Department office. Behavior issues will be brought to the attention of the parent in order to work together toward an appropriate solution.

Our camp staff does not administer medication. Children who carry a self-administered inhaler or Epi-Pen for emergencies should note this on their health form. If your child has a medical issue while at camp, our Red Cross First Aid certified staff will treat basic needs (band-aids, ice packs). All medical issues will be brought to the attention of the parent or guardian listed on your health form. We are peanut-free in our classes but do use food in many classes. Please bring allergy information on your health form at the start of class for your instructor.

Your form will ask you for a credit card (Visa, MasterCard). This form of payment is secure.

If you need to change or cancel a class:

  • To switch camps there is a $5 administrative fee per camp.
  • To cancel your registration more than 2 weeks in advance there is a $10 fee
  • To cancel your registration less than 2 weeks in advance there is no refund unless we can fill the spot from a waiting list.
  • The GSC reserves the right to cancel a class due to insufficient enrollment. In this event, you will receive a full refund or option to register for another class.

To switch/cancel a class call the Education Office at 288-3769 x1389.

Yes. Limited financial assistance is available and requires a separate application. Contact the Camp Director at 288-3769 ext. 1389 for details.
