We love Snapology! My son has attended camps, birthdays and often enjoys doing the open play as well. He always has the BEST time and wants to know when he can go back. The staff at the center are friendly, professional and attentive. I love going in and seeing the creative LEGO displays and learning about the fun, new camps they have coming up. The center is clean and maintained very well. I definitely recommend this place!

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have unanswered questions? Text or Call us at 717-719-4154

What topic or themes do you offer?

For a full list of themes see above. 

How far in advance do I need to reserve a spot?

We recommend that you reserve your spaces now. Last summer some of our camps sold out FAST and we anticipate the same happening this year. We had a long waiting list!

What days and times do you offer?

We have morning (9-12), afternoon (1-4) and full day (9-4) sessions. Mix and match to suit your family’s needs.

Camps are Monday through Friday except for the camp scheduled the week of July 4th, which runs Monday July 1 through Wednesday July 3.

 

Do you provide lunch?

We do not provide lunch. If you are staying for a Full Day camp  you will need to pack a NUT FREE non-perishable lunch (or in a cooler lunch box) for your child.

Do you provide snacks?

We provide a snack during our snack break in both the AM and PM camps. If your child is attending a full day camp, we provide two snacks. 

We ask parents to send a water bottle for their child.

𝘐𝘧 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥 𝘩𝘢𝘴 𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘦𝘳𝘨𝘪𝘦𝘴 𝘰𝘳 𝘧𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘴𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘦𝘴, 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭 𝘧𝘳𝘦𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘱𝘢𝘤𝘬 𝘵𝘸𝘰 𝘦𝘹𝘵𝘳𝘢 𝘯𝘶𝘵-𝘧𝘳𝘦𝘦 𝘴𝘯𝘢𝘤𝘬𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘢 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘳𝘺-𝘧𝘳𝘦𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘦𝘯𝘫𝘰𝘺𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘥𝘢𝘺 𝘰𝘧 𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘺!

What is your policy on foods with NUTS?

We are a nut restrictive facility. This means that we request all students to bring only NUT FREE food into our facility.

However, we cannot guarantee that we are NUT FREE. Occasionally students do show up with products in their snack or lunch that contain nuts.

Our staff is trained to isolate any products that we discover which contain nuts.

Students are required to wash their hands immediately after eating with special attention to anyone who had products that contained nuts.

If your child has a nut allergy, we encourage you to disclose that to staff before they attend any programs so that we can take extra precautions to try to eliminate exposure to any nut oils or products.

 

Do I have to register for a full week?

Yes, all camps are for the full week, Monday through Friday. One exception is the week of July 4th.  During that week of camp, we will only have camp Monday July 1 through Wednesday July 3.

We do not have partial week registration at this time.

Can my child take his project home?

We understand the desire for your child to bring their creations home; however, due to the high cost of the carefully curated kits used in our programs (ranging from $100 to $500 per kit), we are unable to send the building projects home with the students.

These kits include unique and traditional bricks, as well as electronic components, enabling students to create extraordinary builds, working machines, and functioning robots.

Instead, we capture the excitement and pride of their projects through extensive photography, providing you with a regular glimpse into the fantastic work your child has accomplished during their time with us.

For specific programs like Animation and Video Game Design Camps, students will have the opportunity to take home their videos and video games, allowing them to showcase their creativity beyond our facility.

Is there a waitlist if I can't reserve the times and days that I want?

When a session sells out, we will start a waitlist. People on the waitlist will be notified in order if/when a spot opens up. (Book early to avoid being on a waitlist!)

 

Do Snapology camps appeal to all ages?

One of the best things about Snapology is its wide appeal to children of all ages. We host a variety of camps for children from 5 years old to 12 years old.

Each camp lists the minimum age and a recommended maximum age based on the subject matter, but older students are welcome in younger camps.

At the Lancaster location, we offer a camp designed for younger students and a camp designed for older students each week.  At third party locations we try to provide a mix of camps for different age ranges.

Can I extend the camp time?

Due to low demand for extended care, we will not offer extended care during the 2024 Summer Camp season.

What is your refund policy?

Full payment is due at the time of registration (unless you have prior arrangments for a payment plan for 2+weeks of summer camps) in order to secure enrollment in this Snapology activity. This is a non-refundable fee under the following conditions.
