Answers to all your questions!

ZinkerzCamp is our most highly anticipated event of the year! We have carefully considered every possible detail to ensure your child leaves with memories that will last a lifetime.

Do you have more questions? Reach out to us at hello@zinkerz.com

Transportation
What transportation is provided to pick my child up from the airport? Zinkerz Camp staff will provide a shuttle to transport students from the airport.
Food

Will meals be provided for my child?
All meals will be provided for students during Camp.

My child has a restricted diet, what will they eat?
Notify us of any dietary restrictions, including allergies, during registration and we will make accommodations.

Lodging

Where will my child stay?
Students will be staying in a ski house in Vermont and a hotel in Boston

How many roommates will they have?
Students will have either zero or one roommate.

Can roommates be requested?
Yes! We will do our best to honor any roommate requests.

Are the dorm rooms co-ed?
No, all rooms are male or female only. Additionally, bathrooms will only be used by other students of the same sex.

Will there be chaperones?

Yes! Zinkerz staff members will also be staying in the house and hotel and will have a room near the students.

Are there quiet hours and a curfew?

Yes. There will be a set curfew for all students to be in their own rooms and quiet hours will be strictly enforced.

Classes

How many students will be studying together per class?
Class size will range from individual classes to 10 students, depending on the topic.

How are students placed into their classes?
Upon arrival, students will take an assessment to give us insight into their strengths and the areas where they need improvement. Based on this assessment, they will be placed into the classes that will be the most beneficial to their education.

What if my child’s abilities are stronger than the assessment shows?
We constantly modify the groups as needed to ensure every student is getting the optimum opportunity and challenge in their learning.

Who are the educators?
Your child will be taught by an experienced educator and specialist from our team of experts.

 

Technology

Are phones allowed during Camp?
Yes! We encourage students to take photos and to be able to communicate with their families. Phones should be silenced during classes and certain activities, though.

Do you recommend students bring any additional technology to camp?
We recommend students bring their own graphing calculator.

General Organization

How will my child know when activities are happening?
All students join a WhatsApp group and all notifications are sent through this group chat.
They are also shared on a Google calendar that is updated daily with the schedule of activities.

Will you follow the schedule exactly as it is in the brochure?
No. We do our best to follow the planned schedule, but occasionally need to modify (so students are not taking tours in the pouring rain). We will swap out activities based on weather
and may need to shift certain full day schedules as well.

Are there chaperones during activities?
All activities have members of our staff chaperoning the students.
