How much is it?

$40 per child, which includes the rocket kit, a t-shirt, and snacks.

frequently asked questions

What happens each day?

All participants will start in the Sanctuary each week for our Opening Rally. After that, students will go with their groups to attend different stations with other participants their age, including the science experiment station, rocket building, recreation, and snacks. The day ends with a closing rally, which is a BIG demonstration of that weeks experiment, and children are dismissed at 8:30.

My child isn’t old enough to attend. Do you have any options for younger children?

Check back in June, we’re hoping to have something for younger children.

Can I do late drop-off or early pick-up?

For safety and security reasons, we ask that you check in at the Welcome Center with children (Kindergarten-Grade 8) who arrive after 6:45pm or if you need to pick up a child before 8:15 p.m.

When it comes to Pick up, all participants need to be signed out to an approved (by you) adult each week.

Is it important to pre-register?

You can register as late as July 11th, but we can’t guarantee a t-shirt in your size if you register after July 3rd.

We have a total number of spots available, but will be breaking that number into different age groups, and may limit registrations of certain age groups if more spots are needed in another. Preregistration guarantees you a spot and will make the first day of IGNITE easier for your family. All children will receive their preassigned information on July 6.
