NEW SMLI CAMPER CASH GIFT CARDS

We are trying something new!!  To make things a little easier for everyone and hopefully streamline the process of making sure your child has everything they need this summer at SMLI Science Summer Camp this year we will be giving campers their very own Camper Cash Cards.  These cards will be used for all purchases while at Summer Camp.

You will be able to check the balance and reload the cards online, get the receipts of items your child purchased emailed to you in real-time, and eliminate the need to remember to bring cash for your child at drop-off.  Campers will also be able to use their Camper Cash Card to purchase the Pizza or BBQ option on Wednesdays and Fridays if you did not already pre-register for lunch on those days.  All you must do is check the balance online and make sure there is enough cash on the card for the purchase. 

Not only have we moved the gift shop up to the main building and greatly improved our selection of fun and educational science-themed toys, but we have also expanded our drink and snack selection this year and added new lunch and breakfast items, so you never have to worry about coming back to SMLI if your child forgot their lunchbox in the car and no need to worry if there wasn’t time for breakfast before dropping your child off at camp.  Below are some details and instructions.  This is an entirely new system and process so I anticipate a few small kinks may occur, but we will be sure to communicate any changes as they happen.  Your main contact for all camper cash questions or concerns will be our intern, Amanda Ramsden. Click the button below to email her. 

 
Processing Fee:

To administer this awesome new process and cover the cost of the cards– we will be subtracting a one-time $1 fee from each camper's cash balance to cover the costs of administering this new system, but we guarantee it will feel be worth the peace of mind of having one last thing to remember this summer! The Camper Cash cards never expire so anytime your child comes to SMLI they will be able to use the card to purchase snacks or items from the gift shop. 

Setting up a Camper Cash Card:

CAMPER CASH CARDS WILL BE USED FOR ADDITIONAL CAMP PURCHASES AT THE SNACK BAR AND GIFT SHOP. EVERY FRIDAY THE CAMPERS GET A CHANCE TO PURCHASE ITEMS FROM THE GIFT SHOP. SNACKS CAN BE PURCHASED THROUGHOUT THE WEEK. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT CAMPER CASH CARDS OR HOW TO PURCHASE A CAMPER CASH CARD FOR YOUR CAMPER PLEASE CLICK THE ABOVE LINK. IF YOU ARE PURCHASING A CAMPER CASH CARD FOR THE FIRST TIME, PLEASE DO SO BY THE END OF THE DAY ON THE THURSDAY PRIOR TO THE WEEK YOUR CHILD WILL BE ATTENDING CAMP SO WE CAN MAKE SURE THEY HAVE IT WHEN THEY START ON MONDAY.

Campers can purchase items at the snack bar throughout the week and from the gift shop on Fun Fridays. If your child does not have a ‘Camper Cash Card,’ they may still purchase snacks and gift shop items. All forms of payment are accepted.
Every time your child makes a purchase at camp with their camper cash card you will get a receipt via email. This is not an invoice but simply a way for you to keep track of what your child has purchased. Your child’s counselor will hold onto their card during the camp week. At the end of your child’s camp experience, cards will be sent home. Camper Cash will not be refunded but the cards never expire and can be used at any time. To find out more about our new camper cash system please visit the site above. We encourage everyone to use this new camper cash card system in lieu of bringing cash with you to the store.
