Summer 2020 Chicago Schedule

Jul 13 - Jul 17
12:30pm - 3:30pm

How Time is Structured

Camps are 3 hours long, and we give brains and bodies a chance to recharge with a 20 minute outdoor break. This may include walks around the neighborhood, social 'hang-out' time at a green space, or casual games such as frisbee or basketball at our nearby park

Class Size & Instructors

Camps are capped at 10 students, and will have a 5:1 ratio or better at this age group.

Our instructors are adults who are studying or have completed post-secondary education. We hire talented high school students as teaching assistants and to provide near-peer interactions.

Hardware, Accounts & Materials

Computers and all required software are provided.

We use free software that can be used by students at home after the camp.

We will provide guidance on how to install the development tools we are using at home.

After care Add-on (3:30-5:00pm)

Price: $15 per day

For families who need a longer day, we will be offering aftercare by the day throughout the summer.

Aftercare will take place outdoors in Hamlin Park, and you may pick up your child at any time during the window.

Students will be supervised by a member of the Power Up team, who may not be your child's daytime instructor.

Aftercare must be booked 24 hours in advance. Parents who are late picking up their child will be subject to a $40 late pick up fee.

Refunds & Price Adjustments

If you register in error, we have a 24 hour, no-fee cancellation policy. Just call us or email us within 24 hours and we will take care of it.

After that, you can receive a refund, less a $50 admin fee, up until 14 days before the camp starts.

There are no refunds within 14 days of camp start.

We offer a sibling discount for 2 children from the same family registered in the same program. The sibling discount is 10% and the code is SIBLING.

There is an Early Bird Discount of 10% on all registrations up to March 31. The discount will be applied automatically.

We do not offer price adjustments for missed days. Please select a week that works for your schedule.
