Camps At Pacific Science Center
Morning Drop-Off: Camp takes place at Pacific Science Center, 200 Second Avenue North, Seattle. Drop-off is on the west side of Pacific Science Center, outside the Seattle Rotary Discovery Labs, located at 2nd Ave. North and John Street. Drop-off time is 8:15 a.m.- 8:30 a.m. On Monday please 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: Camp end time is at 4:00 p.m. Pick-up takes place in the same location as drop off. If you forget your Kid Code at the time of pick-up, you must show photo identification. Please allow yourself 10-15 minutes to find parking. Or, stay in the car for pick-up:
- If you arrive early, please circle the block until the camp ends.

Kid Code: At pick-up you will be asked the Kid Code you selected at registration. This code functions as a password; share this code only with anyone authorized to pick-up your child. This is a security measure to ensure all campers leave with authorized adults.

If you forget your Kid Code before camp begins, ask the teachers as you drop off your child on the first day of camp.

- Two snacks.
