Summer Enrichment Programs
2020 Summer Enrichment Programs FAQs
Who can attend the camps?
Camps are offered for 3rd through 5th grade, middle school, and high-school aged students. The age range for each camp is listed in the camp description.
When are the camps offered?
The dates and times for all camps are listed on the flyer and on the registration pages. Most camps meet for half days either Monday through Friday or Monday through Thursday from either 9 a.m.-12 p.m. or from 1-4 p.m. Introduction to UX Design & Web Development is a full day camp that meets from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday – Thursday.
Will my child be supervised between two half-day camps if taking both a morning and afternoon session?
Yes. If your child plans to attend both a morning and an afternoon session, you should pack your child’s lunch, and supervision will be provided during this time period.
Where are camps located?
All camps are located on one of RCCC’s campuses, except for Welding Warriors which meets at A.L. Brown High School. Prior to camp, parents will receive confirmation materials including directions to the specific campus and the location(s) of the classroom within that campus.
How much do the camps cost per session?
Five day camps that meet for half-day are $179. Four day camps that meet for half-day are $149. The full day camp is $299.
When are payments due?
Full payment is due at the time of registration in order to hold a place for your child. Camps will be filled on a first-paid, first-served basis. If you select the “Bill Me” option, your child’s place is not guaranteed until payment has been made in full.
Are there any discounts available?

Are there any scholarships available?

Deadline to apply for a scholarship is May 31, 2020. There is a link available on our webpage that will direct you to the scholarship application.
I am not comfortable paying online. Can I pay with a check or cash?
Yes. When you check-out, select the “Bill Me” option. Payment is your responsibility. You will not receive a bill and your child’s participation is not guaranteed until you have paid in full. Camps will be filled on a first-paid, first-served basis. You may pay at the Navigation Stations on either North or South Campuses or mail payment to Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, 1333 Jake Alexander Blvd., Salisbury, NC 28146. Please PRINT YOUR SHOPPING CART CONFIRMATION and include with your payment. Indicate your child’s name and the name of the camp in the memo line of your check.
What if I need to cancel?
Cancellations made in writing prior to one month before camp starts will be fully refunded. After that date, refunds will only be made if another camper fills the vacated spot.
What if a session cancels?
If RCCC cancels a camp for any reason, you will be offered the opportunity to select another available session or be provided with a full refund.
Can sessions be changed after registration?
Transfers to another camp session, if space is available, may be made up to a month prior to the camp for which original registration was made.
What about snacks and lunch?
You must provide a bag lunch/drink for your child on days he or she will be attending both a morning and an afternoon camp session. Snacks may also be sent with your child to half-day camps.
How should campers dress?
Weather permitting, campers may go outside for some activities, so comfortable clothes and closed toe shoes (no flip flops) are preferred, as well as some sunscreen. No short shorts, tank tops, or offensive language on any article of clothing will be permitted. Please pack an extra layer in case the camper finds air-conditioning inside the building to be too cool.
What do campers need to bring/not bring?
All materials for camps are included in the registration fee. If your camper brings a cell phone, it can be used only for emergencies during camp time.
What if my child needs to take medications or has special needs while at camp?
Special needs should, to the extent possible, be specified on the enrollment contract form included in the Registration Process. Any prescription medication the camper must take during camp must be labeled from the pharmacy with the camper’s name; over-the-counter medication must be accompanied by a parent’s note and clear instructions.
How will the camp handle first-aid or emergency care?
First aid kits are available on all campuses. In the event of an emergency every attempt will be made to contact the parent or one of the specified alternative emergency contacts while seeking medical assistance.
