  8300 NE 12th St, Medina, WA 98039
  Just off Hwy 520, 84th Ave exit near the Overlake Golf Course.
 

DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP
 
Morning Drop-Off takes place at the east entrance to the school from 8:15 - 8:30 a.m. From 12th Street, turn into the church driveway (adjacent to St. Thomas School), follow it as it wraps around toward the school and opens into a large parking lot. On Monday, please park and walk your child up to the camp teachers. Other days, teachers will be waiting on the sidewalk for curb-side drop-off.
 
Afternoon Pick-Up takes place in the same location as drop-off at 4 p.m. If you forget your Kid Code, you must show photo identification. We allow a 10 minute grace period for pick-up; your child will then be placed in extended day care for a $12 fee.
 
Kid Code: At pick-up you will be asked the Kid Code you chose at registration. This code functions as a password; share it only with anyone authorized to pick up your child. This is a security measure to ensure all campers leave with authorized adults. Camp staff will release campers only to those who know the Kid Code or who show photo identification that matches names listed on the medical form. If you forget your Kid Code before camp begins, ask staff as you drop off your child on the first day of camp.
 
In case of emergency, contact camp staff at (206) 495-8512. We may also be reached by calling Pacific Science Center:
  • Registration Office: (206) 443-2925, available M-F 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
  • Reception: (206) 443-2001, available daily 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.

ATTENDANCE
 
We expect children to attend each day of camp (except for illness) and to arrive and depart at the scheduled time.
 
Children arriving late or leaving early must be escorted by camp staff. Parents must wait for camp staff; this process can take over 15 minutes. If you plan to pick up early, notify your child's teacher in advance and pick up your child before 3 p.m. After this time, camp staff may be unavailable to escort your child.
 
Late arrival and early pick-up are disruptive to the entire camp, as many of our activities are cumulative and group-based. Please avoid scheduling appointments and other activities during the camp day.

CAMPERS SHOULD BRING THE FOLLOWING EACH DAY:
  • 2 snacks (Note: Please provide an extra snack if staying for extended day care)
  • Sack lunch (No lunch program available for break camps)
  • Water bottle
  • Any medications listed on your medical form

EXTENDED DAY CARE 
 
Morning day care is not offered at this location.
 
Afternoon extended day care is available until 6 p.m. Cost: $55 per week, or $12 daily.
When picking up your child from extended day care, go to the east entrance to get buzzed into the building. From there, go up the stairs in the east wing to pick up your child. For unplanned extended day care use, please inform the teacher in the morning and pay with cash or check when picking up your child. 
 
Afternoon extended day care ends promptly at 6 p.m. After 6 p.m. a late fee of $10 for every 10 minutes will be due at the time of pick-up.

CANCELLATIONS AND TRANSFERS
 
Cancellation Policy: Requests for withdrawal from camp must be received at least two weeks before camp start date. A $100 processing fee will be retained per camp. No refunds will be given within two weeks of camp start date.
 
Transfer Policy: To transfer sessions, call (206) 443-2925. There will be $20 processing fee per transfer. This excludes transfers resulting from openings on our camp waiting list, which are free of charge. Requests for transfers must be made at least one week prior to camp start date. 

CODE OF CONDUCT

Pacific Science Center is committed to providing a welcoming, safe and fun environment for all campers. Proper supervision and appropriate behavior are key components to a successful camp experience. In an effort to provide all campers with a safe and fun atmosphere, it is important that all campers exhibit respect for themselves, fellow campers, staff and the camp environment at all times.

Every camp session, camp staff and campers review and discuss procedures, structure and behavior expectations. Camps are asked to be respectful of other campers, staff and materials. Inappropriate, disruptive and/or violent behavior will not be tolerated. Examples of inappropriate behavior include, but are not limited to: fighting, name-calling, foul language, arguing, bullying, leaving the group or possessing weapons.

Minor behavioral problems will be addressed by camp staff. If behavior issues persist, parents or guardians will be contacted to work towards a resolution. If a camper's behavior continues to disrupt the camp or endangers the physical or emotional safety of themselves or others, Pacific Science Center reserves the right to cancel that individual's camp enrollment for a day or more with no refund.
