What is Kidtek doing to address COVID-19?
SCC is taking the health and safety of our students in our region very seriously thus we had to make some changes for the 2020 camps.  Some of those changes are as follows:
- Face-to-face camps will be starting two weeks later (June 22) to give additional time for virus activity to settle in our region.
- Face-to-face camps will be limited to 8 students so social distancing guidelines can be met. If a camp fills we are asking the parent to call us so their student can be added to a wait list (319-208-5375).
- Virtual camps have been added for 2020. This option gives students the option to learning science and technology skills from the comfort and safety of their own home.
- Class schedule and delivery format may need to be adjusted throughout the summer as we continue to monitor virus activity in our region.

How can I register my child for camp?
You can register your child by phone (319) 208-5375 or online. 

What camp level do I register my student for?
The curriculum is geared towards the grades stated.  We leave it up to the parents as you know your child's education level better than anyone.  Age restrictions are listed within the camp description if they apply.

What is the Student Information Sheet?
The Student Information Sheet will be sent to you following the processing of your registration.  This form is required before your child can attend the camps.  The form requests student information, emergency contact information, and photo agreement.

What time can I drop my child off at camp and what time do I need to have them picked up?
Students must be dropped off no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the start time and must be picked up no later than 15 minutes after end time.  Parents will be responsible for their child outside of these hours.

How should my student dress for the camps?
For safety of campers, shirts with sleeves must be worn (no tank tops). No jewelry is allowed. Clothing that is negative towards the school or school district, promotes the use of alcohol or drugs, is profane, racially biased or offensive in language/pictures, relates to gang activity or colors, or includes sexually inappropriate references may not be worn. No open-toe shoes or house slippers are allowed. Safety glasses will be provided by instructors in certain classes and must be worn during class.

What if I need to cancel our registration?
Our normal policy is to notify CBIZ in writing at least two weeks advance of scheduled changes in order to receive tuition reimbursement.  This policy has been relaxed due to COVID-19.  We would appreciate advanced notification so we can allow students who might be a on a waiting list to enter the class however please know we will provide reimbursement up until the start of class.
