There is a 1:8 adult to camper ratio at Aim for the Stars. Our staff members are chosen based on their rapport with children, knowledge of the subject matter and love of learning. Your child will learn so much and enjoy every moment of Aim for the Stars Science and Math Camp.
Aim for the Stars will be using the CircuiTree platform for registration again this year. Chosen by the UINO Youth Safety Department, CircuiTree is a private company. If you registered last year, all of your information is still there! Use the same login and password. Please take time to look over the format before registering. Be patient and read everything! J
Please take time to read over the Parking Instructions on the website and share with those who will be picking up and dropping off.
Camper Age Policy
- Ages are based on grade entering in fall of 2018.
- Children entering third grade - register for Totally Cool Math and Science camp. (No exceptions.)
- Most camps are for children entering grades four through eight.
- Four camps are available for those entering grades 8 - 10.
- Fourth and fifth graders attend together and sixth through eighth graders attend together.
The AFTS staff cannot monitor every child’s use of personal technology; therefore, small electronic devices, phones, i-pods and the like are to be kept out of sight and not used during camp hours or in before or after care. If the device is being used, counselors and/or teachers will confiscate and send the device to the camp director. It will be returned at the end of the day. No sooner. Safety concerns and the misuse of such technology at camp have led to this policy.
There is a telephone in each room and teachers carry phones on field trips that may be used for emergency calls to parents. Use of cell phones to call or receive calls from parents or others is discouraged during camp hours, including the lunch period. Parents should call 402.554.4999 if they need to speak to a child. We are more than happy to have children use the phone in the classroom if they need to call their parents/guardians.
