Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What age groups are your programs catered toward?

A. We have programs available for students from Kindergarten to 12th grade. Please see our camps and programs page for more information regarding this matter.

Q. Are scholarships available?

A. Scholarship availability depends on the amount of money the IDEAL program has available for scholarships.

Q. What is your counselor to student ratio?

A. Our counselors are typically former campers and Texas Tech students. In order to ensure a safe environment for your campers background checks are ran on all of our counselors.

Q. Will my child need to bring spending money?

A. No additional spending money is required. However, if you would like your student to have some additional cash then feel free to send them with money.

Q. I live in Lubbock, instead of staying in the dorm can I take my child to and from camp each day?

A. We do not allow students to commute back and forth between the camp each night. This creates an additional liability on our end and makes it much more difficult to keep track of campers. Also, we believe that summer camps are a perfect opportunity for your child to meet new people and make new friends.

Q. What does my child need to bring?

A. Essential items vary from camp to camp after registration you will receive a confirmation packet that will detail all the necessities required for our camps.

Q. My child would like to go to camp with a friend. Do you allow roommate requests?

A. Yes, when registering your child for camp you may request a roommate. In order for your child to get the roommate he/she requests both students must request each other.
