Frequenlty Asked Questions (FAQs)
Which camps are currently being offered?
What course do you recommend taking?
Do you offer any online courses as my kids are home now and need something to do?
Does Genius Camp only offer Summer programs?
Does my child need to bring any materials?
No, we provide the required materials needed over the course of the program. You may check individual camps to see what we offer our campers.
How can I access the camp materials?
Coding and Game-design camps do need materials. For the Engineering camps (e.g. Robotics) that need materials, once your child has been fully registered, we will mail the required materials to your home address (e.g. Robot). It should take about 1-2 business days for you to receive the introductory registration package. Your child is welcome to keep the received materials to continue practicing after the completion of the camp.
Do I need specific software to join the online session?
We run our e-campus on Zoom, which is super easy to navigate. After completing the registration process, we will follow up with a link that will direct you to where you can download all the programs you need onto your computer desktop.
How many students are each in course?
We guarantee small class sizes that average 2 to 5 students per instructor. We recommend registering early, as courses sell out fast.
What is the duration of each course? How many sessions do I need to register for?
Each session is one hour long for all the virtual courses, with instruction time running between 9 am to 9 pm. In the first session, the instructor will assess your child’s level of knowledge and adjust the learning pace accordingly. Summer camps are 10 hours in total. Private and semi-private courses are 8 to 24 hours for each level based on your enrolled package.
Note that for every 1 hour of live instruction, there will be +1 hour of optional self-paced project development that your child can work on assigned projects in their free time.
How much is the tuition fee?
This depends on the program. Our pricing structure is different for private, semi-private, after-school, and summer camp programs as the length of the program and the ratio of teacher to students vary. The summer camp tuition fee is $275 per camp. Camp materials, if needed, are available at extra costs.
Who will be teaching the online sessions?
Instructors come from a wide variety of fields within science, engineering and technology-based fields. These professional educators all bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Genius Camp that is highly commendable. All teachers in our camp programs are passionate about what they do and come prepared to teach and inspire your children. At the end of each session, personalized instructor feedback will be delivered to you so you can track your child’s progress.
