Scholarships

BadgerBOTS believes that all kids should have the opportunity to attend camp. Full and partial financial scholarships are available for students receiving free or reduced lunches or otherwise require assistance. We process applications on a monthly basis and will contact you regarding your status.

  1. Create an account in our registration system and log in
  2. Complete the online forms, including that you wish to apply for a scholarship and the amount
  3. Select the camp(s)
  4. Choose the payment plan “Apply for a Scholarship – Pay $5 to hold your spot in the class until scholarship decision finalized”
  5. Have a teacher or non-family member adult write and send a letter of recommendation to BadgerBOTS responding to the following:

How long have you known the student or family?
Please describe the student’s demonstrated interest in science, technology, engineering or math. Feel free to list any other important circumstances that would be favorable in deciding on scholarship eligibility.

Camp and Class Policies

Student Ages for Class or Camp

Minimum Age: Students must be at least 7 years old by the start day of a program to be permitted to attend. We do have some parent-chaperoned events, as well as the Junior FIRST LEGO League in the Fall, for students under the age of 7. Please check our Calendar for any upcoming events.

Class or Camp Age Range Exceptions: BadgerBOTS Camps and Classes are organized based on student grade number (2nd grade – 5th grade, etc.). We do this so that students in each camp or class section are with peers close to their age and school experience, which in turn fosters collaboration and friendships. This type of class environment also helps students who may be out of their comfort zone feel more welcomed in a STEM learning environment. We do not make exceptions for younger students to register for the older age classes or camps, regardless of previous experience or expertise in the subject matter. We instead strive to present the class or camp topics at a level of difficulty appropriate to the students in the class, providing more advanced challenges and lessons to the students who are ready. BadgerBOTS thanks families for their understanding and acceptance of our age policy!

Wait List

There will be the option to add your name to the waiting list if registration for a certain class is full. We will notify you as soon as possible if space becomes available.

Missed Days

If a student has to miss a day or cannot attend every session, BadgerBOTS staff will work to get them caught up on their projects when they return. We are unable to pro-rate tuition for students who cannot attend for the entire time.

Payment

In order to register and hold your spot in the camp or class, a minimum deposit of 10% must be paid online when you sign up (or if you select to apply for scholarship funding). There is the option to schedule automatic payments to be made at a later date. If you do not wish to make online payments please contact us to make other arrangements.

Class Transfers, Cancellations and Refunds

Please contact BadgerBOTS if you would like to switch dates or classes at least one week before the start date. For cancellations at least 8 days before the camp begins, payments will be refunded minus 10% of the program cost as an administration fee. Any session cancellation notifications received after will not be refunded. All cancellations must be received in writing in order to be refunded (email is sufficient, jtaylor@badgerbots.org or camps@badgerbots.org).

Drop-off and pick-up

Students can be dropped off up to 10 minutes before the start of a class. All students must be picked up by their parent/guardian or authorized adult within 10 minutes after class ends for the day. BadgerBOTS has a check-in and check-out system for camp.


Food and Snacks

Depending on the class, we may have a break for snack provided by BadgerBOTS. If your child has dietary restrictions or you have any concerns about snack, please contact us to make arrangements. All snacks will be nut-free. Students who register to stay for lunch during camp will need to bring a packed lunch which can be kept in the fridge.
