Terms & Conditions

After School Programs:Children who do not enjoy the first session of an After School Program can withdraw and receive a full refund. After the first day of class, no refunds will be issued. Mad Science schedules one guaranteed make-up date per course for weather-related cancellations or changes in the school calendar. If more than one such cancellation occurs, make-up classes will be held at the discretion of Mad Science and depend on many factors including the availability of the instructor and the facility. No refunds will be issued if multiple classes are cancelled by the school or school district.

Camp: $50 of any camp registration is a non-refundable service charge. (If you have paid $175 for camp and ask for a refund you will receive $125 back.) No camp refunds will be given if a child is withdrawn within 2 weeks of the start of the session. If a camper withdraws, any money in excess of the $50 service charge can be applied as a credit to a future Mad Science program. These credits expire after one year from the date of the original program. If you register within one week of the start of a program, full payment must be made via credit card before the program starts.

Parent pick up (if child is not attending aftercare at school) is expected within 5 minutes of the end of class. Multiple late pick ups, while not in any way the fault of the child, will result in a child being removed from the program. 

Payment Plans can be set up upon request, with scheduled, automatic future payments made via credit card.
