Online Summer Camp FAQ
- What is the daily / weekly schedule? Each summer camp is one week long (Monday - Friday, 5 camp-days total, except where otherwise indicated).
For all available camps, campers can enroll in the morning session and/or the afternoon session. The morning session is from 9am to 12pm, and the afternoon session is from 1pm to 4pm. If a camper is signed up for both the morning and afternoon sessions, they will have lunchtime period from 12:00pm to 1:00pm.
"VEX V5 Team Boot Camp" is a full-day camp only. There is no Zoom Meeting during the lunch break period (12pm - 1pm).
