Camps at The Overlake School

  About one mile off of Avondale Rd., just past Farrel McWhirter Park.

Located on the beautiful, green campus of The Overlake School, camps will be offered in July and August. Just minutes from downtown Redmond and the Microsoft campus, this site provides the winning combination of Pacific Science Center's quality summer camp programming with The Overlake School's math and science facility, which is well-equipped for a summer packed with scientific inquiry.


Drop-Off & Pick-Up    

Morning Drop-Off is at the Math and Science Building, Discovery Hall. Follow the signs up the hill for "Main Campus." Look for the Pacific Science Center camp signs.

Drop-off takes place between 8:15 and 8:30 a.m. each day; camp activities begin promptly at 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 times are staggered to accommodate the large number of campers. Check your confirmation material or with your camper's teacher for the specific end time. Pick-up takes place in the same location as drop-off.

We allow a 10 minute grace period for picking up your camper; 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 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. Camp staff will release campers only to those who know the Kid Code, or who show picture identification that matches names listed on the medical form. If you forget your Kid Code before camp begins, ask the teachers as you drop off your child on the first day of camp.  


Emergency Contact Information

In case of emergency, or to contact camp staff, call (425) 647-4827

Extended Day Care

Morning extended day care is not offered at this location.

Afternoon extended day care is available until 6 p.m.

  • Cost: $50 per 5 day week, or $12 daily
  • Please provide an extra snack for your child if you are using extended day care.
  • For unplanned extended day care use, please inform the teacher in the morning and pay with cash or check when picking up your child.

Extended day care is located inside the Math and Science Building; follow the signs for Pacific Science Center camps. 


What to Bring to Camp 

Campers should bring the following each day:

  • Two snacks (Note: Please provide an extra snack if your child is staying for extended day care)
  • Sack lunch (Camper Lunch Program is not offered at this location.)
  • Water bottle
  • Any medications listed on your medical form


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.


Communication During Camp

Each afternoon, we will send a daily camp summary from your camper's teachers to the email address provided at registration.


Parent Presentations

Some camps have a parent presentation on the last day of camp. Look for more information in your daily parent letter. 
 

Field Trips 

Some camps have a field trip during the week. Look for more information in your daily parent letter.
