FAQs

  • I've registered. What's next?

    Send in the Emergency Medical & Release Form at least two weeks prior to the start of camp. This form is REQUIRED. Your Camper will not be allowed to attend Camp until we have a completed form.

  • Where do I go? What do I do?

    Discovery Place Kids-Huntersville is located at 105 Gilead Road, Huntersville, NC 28078.

    Park in the Huntersville Town Center Parking Deck — it’s free! — located directly behind the Museum. The Parking Deck is accessible from both Old Statesville and Gilead roads.

    Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to the start of Camp. Parents/guardians should escort Campers to the Learning Garden entrance, located between the Parking Deck and the main entrance to the Museum. There will be signs and staff to help you identify the drop off location. Please remember, if your Camper is age 2, then an adult must also participate in the Camp.

    The pick-up location is the same as the drop-off location. All adults must present a photo ID when collecting Campers. Only adults listed on the Emergency Medical & Release Form will be authorized to pick up a Camper.
