2016 Winter Camps

Join us for our newly designed Winter Camps from December 21st-30th.

Each of our camp sessions is designed for the skill level of that particular camp: therefore, the grade levels must be observed. Enrollment is limited to ensure a quality experience. Registrants may attend only those camps for which they are registered. Registrations are not transferable.

At this time online registration is not available

Call reservations at 205-714-8414 to register.

The deadline for December 21st-23rd camps is Monday, December 19th.
The deadline for December 27th-30th camps is Friday, December 23rd.

All fees are due in full at time of registration. All fees are subject to %10 tax
Daily Full-day camps $100 per day (McWane Science Center Members receive $20 discount)
Daily Half-day camps $50 per day (McWane Science Center Members receive $10 discount)

McWane Science Center reserves the right to cancel camps that do not meet minimum enrollment. If a camp is canceled by McWane Science Center, a full refund will be returned to the registrant. If a registrant cancels a camp, a 50% refund will be made if the registrant notifies the Camp program in writing, emailed, postmarked or faxed, no later than 5 working days prior to the day of camp. Otherwise, NO REFUNDS, will be made. There is a $30 service charge for any returned checks and enrollment will be automatically canceled.
