Coronavirus statement

The Engineering + Innovation Camp staff is closely monitoring the outbreak of the coronavirus. At this time, we intend to hold all camp programs as scheduled. If the outbreak continues locally and/or nationally through the end of April and seems likely to extend into the summer, we will cancel the camps. If we do cancel the camps, full refunds will be given back to families. Additionally, if we do hold the camps, we will give a full refund to anyone who isn't comfortable attending due to coronavirus concerns up to a week before the camp starts.

We want to reiterate that we don't anticipate that we will have to cancel any camp programs this summer but are prepared to act upon CDC and state government recommendations. We will you updated as the situation evolves.
