Frequently Asked Questions

1. What will my child learn?
 
We will host two distinct streams depending on the grade level. The junior program will be for youth in Grades 1-4. The senior program will be for those in Grades 6-8. Those in Grade 5 can choose between either program depending on their interest and readiness levels. You can review the themes page for more details. 

2. What will happen once I have registered?
 
Once we have received your payment and registration, we will send confirmation details on your booking. Starting three weeks before the start of your camp session, we will send the outline of each days schedule and any logistics details via email. Please add the programs@indusspace.ca email id to your contacts list to ensure our emails do not go to Spam.
 

3. Is this a virtual camp?

No, we are running this entire camp program in person. If you are looking for a virtual participation option, please email info@indusspace.ca to enquire details. 

4. Will I need to stay with my child?

We encourage children to participate at a comfort level suitable for them and as with typical camp programs only expect to interact with the campers. If there are any additional needs, please contact us – we will aim to find the best solution that works for you. 

 
5. What happens if we miss a day?

We recognize that schedules’ may get hectic. We will provide recommendations on how to catch up for any missed session. Please inform facilitators of any potential disruptions as soon as possible.
 
6. Who is facilitating the camps?
 
Each camp session will be lead by our founder Dr. Bhairavi Shankar, a Planetary Scientist and Canadian Space Ambassador. She will be joined by STEM facilitators to ensure your child learns from experts in the field in a fun and engaging manner. 
 

7. Do you have a refund policy?

A $50 admin fee will be retained if you want to withdraw within two-weeks of the scheduled series starting or if you change your mind after attending the first session. There are no refunds for missed classes. No refunds will be issued if a child is removed because of inappropriate behaviour.

8. Are there any necessary materials?

Once your registration is confirmed, and in the week prior to camp starting, we will inform you if any activity materials are required. If so, these materials will be common household items with minimal need of additional purchase. Campers in the senior Moonbound camp are encouraged to bring their digital device for part of the camp. 

9. Is there before/after care available? 
 
Facilitators will be on site at 9:30am and depart by 2:30pm. Should you require before or after care, please indicate in the registration page. We will charge $20 extra for each 30 minutes outside of the main camp time. 
 

10. Is lunch provided?

We will provide a pizza lunch on the last day of camp (Friday). Otherwise we encourage children to bring their own snack, lunch, and water container to camp each day.
