The hour before the Parent Showcase will be used in part to clean in preparation for the event.

If your child requires prescribed medications, please include a note that indicates the name of the medication and when it should be administered. The medication must be in the correct prescription container.

Any student who brings a weapon to a summer program or uses Georgia Tech computers inappropriately will be handed over to the campus police and immediately dismissed from the program.

Violation of these expectations will result in the immediate dismissal from the camp without a refund of camp fees. Dismissed campers will not be allowed to return to OEC camps in the future.
