Registration Opens March 2!

Full-Day Camps | Monday – Friday | 9 AM – 4 PM
Ages: 9-14
Cost: $300 (Tuition Assistance is available)
Spy Hop Hangout (aftercare): 4:00 – 5:30 PM (additional $45 fee)

Spy Hop’s summer camps provide full-day workshop style experiences jam-packed with opportunities for learning and creative self-expression. Camp time is 9 am – 4 pm with an hour-long lunch break (students are required to bring their own lunches).

Following the Spy Hop model, camps are taught by our caring mentors who are professionals in their fields of music, design, audio engineering or film. Kids will have hands-on training and instruction using Spy Hop gear to bring their artistic ideas to life. Our approach to learning encourages collaboration, problem-solving, communication skills and creative thinking.

Every Friday afternoon parents/guardians are invited to attend a camp celebration where we share student projects. Spark your child’s creative brain at Spy Hop this summer!

Summer Camp Policies

Payment is due in full at the time of registration. Cash, check or all major credit cards are accepted. Parents/Guardians will receive confirmation via email, along with a reminder email one-week before camp starts 

The majority of Spy Hop Summer Camps take place at Spy Hop, 669 S. West Temple. In this case, there will be an identified drop off location in front of the building on West Temple where there will be a Spy Hop staff member to check in all students starting at  8:30 AM. In the instance of a partner camp with The Front or the HERC, drop off will be at the partner site starting at 8:30 AM. Prior to the camp, you will receive an e-mail with the partner addresses and drop-off instructions.

Spy Hop requires that those picking up students in summer camps are listed as approved to do so (including parents). Students are expected to sign in and out at the start and end of each day. If you need to make a different pick-up arrangement mid-week, please contact the Program Director at summer@spyhop.org or call 801-532-7500 to communicate arrangements. 

You will need to be prompt in dropping off and picking up your child. Spy Hop does not assume responsibility for any child dropped off unattended. Please do not drop off your child before 8:30 am, as staff will not be present to admit your child. If a child is not picked up promptly after camp, you will be charged a late fee of $5.00 for each minute the child is left unattended. This does not apply if you are delayed due to an emergency. Please contact Spy Hop at 801-532-7500 to alert us to any emergency situation, e.g. car trouble, etc.

A 100% refund will be given for classes dropped up to four full weeks prior to the first day of class. Requests to drop a class and /or requests for refunds must be made in person at Spy Hop, 669 S. West Temple or by phone at 801-532-7500. Parents are responsible for dropping all desired classes for their children before the drop deadline. No refunds will be issued after the drop deadline passes. No refunds will be authorized in the event of a student dismissal. Please contact us at 801-532-7500 if you have extenuating circumstances beyond student or parent control and we will work with you to come up with a reasonable solution.

If fewer than the minimum number of students enroll, the camp will be cancelled. Parents will be notified in advance and will receive a full refund. Summer camps require a minimum enrollment of 6 students before they can be held.

A small number of scholarships are available based on financial need. Please contact the Program Director summer@spyhop.org 801-532-7500 to inquire about eligibility. 

The purpose of good classroom and camp management is to provide an environment conducive to learning and fun. Teachers have the right to teach and students have the right to learn. A disruptive student detracts from the camp experience and effects the enjoyment of others.

Students are expected to abide by these rules:

  1. Listen and follow directions
  2. Show respect to others around you, the space, and the equipment
  3. Use appropriate language and behavior

Our policy in handling disruptive children is as follows: First, the instructor will discuss the situation with the student; on the second occurrence, the instructor will notify the parent. If the situation continues uncorrected, the Spy Hop staff will contact the parent and the student will be dismissed from the camp. No refunds will be authorized in the event of a dismissal.

We recognize that your child may have the need to bring a cell phone for communication purposes. However, cell phone usage during class is not permitted. Please leave tablets and game devices at home.

All transportation required between campsites will be provided by Spy Hop via our Spy Hop shuttle bus or van and licensed drivers.

Campers are required to bring their own lunches. One hour of supervised lunch time, including optional activities, will be provided each day. Snacks and drinks will be provided by Spy Hop. Please let the Program Director know, prior to class, if your child has any food allergies. Summer@spyhop.org or call 801-532-7500.
