Summer Camp Frequently Asked Questions

What is the age range for Hawkeye Summer Camps?

All camps are for youth ages 9-15, unless specified in the description. No younger students will be admitted.

Are there any special requirements to sign up for these camps?

Other than the minimum age requirements specified for each camp, all students are welcome to enroll.

My child has a morning camp that ends at noon and an afternoon camp that starts that same day at 12:30pm, will there be supervision over the lunch break?

We will provide supervision and make sure your child gets from the morning camp to the afternoon camp. Please provide a sack lunch that does not require refrigeration.

The camp my child wants is full, can you squeeze in just one more?

Unfortunately if the camp is full, we cannot take any more students. There is a waiting list and you will be notified if a spot becomes available.

Is there a chance that the camp might be cancelled?

All camps have a minimum number of students required. If the minimum is not met, you will be notified and will receive a full refund. If the instructor decides for whatever reason they cannot teach, we will try our best to find a replacement. If we cannot, we will cancel the camp and you will receive a full refund.

I’m not sure if we’ll be able to sign up for a certain camp until the last minute. Can we sign up at the door?

If the camp has openings, we will accept walk-ins. A parent or guardian must accompany the child who is walking in to the camp to sign appropriate forms and pay the fee. Please note that if the minimum enrollment has not been met the class will be canceled.

Can I sit in on the camp with my child?

Adults will not be allowed to stay at the camp with students. If there are special circumstances, please contact us and we will evaluate the situation on a case-by-case basis.

What if we need to drop out of a camp?

Cancellations made by Hawkeye Community College are fully refunded. If a student needs to drop out of a camp, they will have up until one day prior to the camp for a full refund. Refunds after the camp starts will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

What about permission forms and emergency contact information? Will I need to fill anything out?

The registration form requires this type of information to be completed.

My son’s camp is over at noon and I have to work until 2:00pm. Can he just stay at Hawkeye Community College until I can pick him up?

For liability reasons, students will need to be picked up no later than 10 minutes after the camp has ended. Students can be dropped off 10 minutes prior to the start of camp.
