Terms and Conditions

Acceptable Behavior Policy:
For a safe and fun environment, participants are expected to behave in an acceptable manner and use appropriate language. We encourage kindness, idea sharing, and positivity! Aggression or bullying is not tolerated. It is important to remember there are no refunds if a participant is asked to leave the program due to unacceptable behavior.

If you would like to speak with someone to determine if our program is a good fit for your child, please contact us at 800-968-4332 a minimum of 8 weeks prior to the start date of the program. If 1:1 assistance is requested, we will provide you with a form to submit any necessary information then work with you to identify reasonable accommodations if available. While a request cannot be guaranteed, all accommodation inquiries will be reviewed for safety and program integrity.

Participants should have the basic skills to be self-sufficient, adhere to the behavior policy and be willing to participate in the imaginative, creative process with peers. We produce a high-energy experience that at times can be noisy and highly stimulating. Children will rotate rooms and Instructors throughout the day for each activity, which can vary from a typical single-classroom/teacher setting. Please keep in mind locations hosting summer/after-hours programs do not have the same personnel/tools available as during the school year. *Nurses, special education assistants, aides, etc., are not on site unless a parent arranges an approved accommodation beforehand based on their individual child needs.

Photography Release:
By selecting Yes, you authorize the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Inc., corporate and government sponsors and affiliates, to obtain, store, publish and/or use (without payment) any photographs, slides, sound and/or video recordings made of your child for public relations, marketing/advertising and/or internal training purposes.

Refund Policy and Cancellation Insurance:
$80 of each registration fee is nonrefundable. The remaining balance is refundable up to 11:59pm ET on the Sunday three weeks prior to the start date of the program. Cancellations made after this time are nonrefundable, as materials and educator costs are allocated and final. As long as there is availability, you can switch your program location up to six weeks before the start date (Refund Policy will be applicable to the earliest start date). Scholarship registrations and kits are nonrefundable.

Cancellation Insurance may only be purchased at the time of registration for an additional $25 per participant, which covers the registration cost should a parent need to cancel, less the insurance fee and any applicable materials which must be returned and unopened. Cancellation Insurance claims are redeemable up to the first day of the program by speaking with a Customer Relations representative at 800-968-4332.

Permission is granted to the attending physician to proceed with an examination, diagnosis and medical or minor surgical or other treatment. In the event of a medical emergency, you understand that every attempt will be made by the attending physician to contact you in the most expeditious way possible.
