A World of Wonder instructor or staff member will supervise students at all times.


We will provide an orientation the Saturday prior to each session. Families and students will have the opportunity to meet instructors and staff, confirm pick up and drop off location, visit classrooms, ask questions, eat cookies, and drink lemonade. Orientation information is provided with your class confirmation. Orientation for each session is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on the dates listed above.  Families need to attend only one orientation.


Students who are spending the day with us should bring a sack lunch. Refrigeration is not available.


Students who register for recreation will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of activities each day. Recreation activities will change daily and will range from leisurely to active. For example, a student may choose to play tag one day and chess the next.


The cost is $99 per class and $29 for a week of recreation.


Participants will receive participation certificates, t-shirts, and a class photo.

Class Confirmations, Substitutions, and Cancellations

Families will receive confirmation of the child’s class registration at the earliest possible date. Information on parking, drop off/pick up locations, and a map of the Bradley University campus will be listed on the back of the confirmation.

Class assignments are based on the order in which applications are received. When a student’s first choice cannot be honored because the class is full, the second choice will be substituted. 

World of Wonder cancellations: The World of Wonder will not cancel any classes this summer.

Student cancellations: All student cancellations will be assessed a $15 fee. Partial refunds will not be given after the date listed on this page.

Student Behavior

We believe students learn best in an atmosphere of respect for the teacher and each other. Students who choose to behave in ways that interfere with other students’ opportunities to learn and/or the instructors’ opportunities to teach, forfeit their own opportunity to participate. Family support and cooperation in this matter is appreciated. We reserve the right to dismiss students from class for such reasons. In these cases, no refunds will be given.
