Questions?

  • How do I register for before and after care?

When you register your child for summer camp you will be given the option of adding before or after care, or both. You can register and pay for these when you sign your child up for camp. If at a later date you decide that you would like to sign up for before and after care, please contact the Aquarium registrar at (206) 693-6196 or registration@seattleaquarium.org and we will help you register.


  • How do I pay for before and after care?

Payment for before and after care will be billed to you once your registered camp session has ended. Along with your invoice you will receive a copy of your child’s sign-in and -out form with dates and signatures to confirm that you are billed for the appropriate cost and time.


  • Is the cost of before and after care pro-rated if I do not use the full hour?

We charge a flat fee for our before and after care options, no matter how much of the time you use from 8–8:45am and/or 4:15–5:30pm.


  • Is there a grace period of time for signing my child in and out during drop off and pick up times?

Drop-off and pickup times can be busy, with multiple families coming and going, and every camper may not be signed in and out at the exact times camp begins and ends. Campers signed in between 8:45 and 9am and signed out between 4 and 4:15pm will not be placed in or charged for before or after care.


  • What if I arrive later than 5:30pm to pick up my child?

Camp after care ends at 5:30pm sharp. If a camper is picked up later than 5:30pm, a $10 fee will be added for every 15-minute increment thereafter.
