Science Discovery’s Summer, After-School and Day-Off camps are held at the following locations. Please see your registration confirmation for specific camp locations and parking information.
*NEW* Main Campus Drop-off/Pick-up Location (See Map)
WE ARE NOT ALLOWED to use the drop-off/pick-up system we employed last summer due to construction impacts and related public safety concerns. As such, free parking will be made available in Lot 440, located just east of the Business Field, during the drop-off and pick-up times listed below:
12 – 1pm
Parking in Lot 440 (or any other campus lot) outside of these times will require that you pay the meter. CU Science Discovery is not responsible for parking fees incurred outside of the times listed above, or in any lot other than Lot 440.
Parents and/or guardians are responsible for walking their camper(s) across Regent Drive to check-in/check-out at the Business field.
You must ENTER and EXIT on Regent Drive from Colorado Avenue. There will be significant construction taking place along Regent Drive, reducing this road to one lane.
Please do your best to have your child(ren) dropped off by 8:45am/12:45pm so they can arrive at their camp location by 9am/1pm.
