FAQ

FAQ ABOUT OUR SUMMER ARTS PROGRAM

What are the hours of the camp?
The camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with early drop off (8:30 a.m.) available for no extra charge and extended care until 6 p.m. for an extra fee of $20.00 an hour.

When is my payment due?
Full tuition for the session(s) you have signed your child up for is due with your completed application.

How do students know where their workshops are?
Students will gather in the center yard 10 minutes prior to the start of your first workshop in the morning. The name of each workshop is called and all the students that are enrolled.  Students follow the workshop teachers and workshop assistants to class. If a student did not hear their name or they forget where to go, they can ask any staff member and they will be led to their workshop.

What should my child bring to camp every day?

Campers should dress comfortably with close-toed shoes. In addition, your child should carry snacks, sun block, a hat and a water bottle. All this should be carried in a backpack with their name on it.

What happens during lunch?
Lunch is one hour long. For the first 15-20 minutes, everyone will eat lunch in the center yard together. Then, once students are finished with lunch, they can just relax and talk with friends, play on the blacktop or grass field or join in activities organized by the counselors.

Can parents accompany students the first day?
Parents can walk students in any day and stay for our morning meeting if they like. Good byes take place in the morning meeting location.  Parents do not accompany students to class without advance arrangement.

Do students ever go swimming or take any trips?
No, we do not have pools at our campuses and we do not take weekly field trips to water or amusement parks.

What if my plans change or we miss a day, can I get a refund?
Should you withdraw from camp prior to June 5, 2017 you will receive a full refund, minus the $100 per child enrollment fee. We do not offer refunds or make-up days if your child takes time off from camp, misses a day or a partial day, takes a family vacation, gets sick, or anything else that requires time off from camp.

What if my child wants to attend additional days?
If space is available, no problem. Simply call our office, or see us on campus to enroll.

Do you offer any discounts?
Yes, a 5% discount is offered for a second sibling enrolled in the same session from the same immediate family.

What is your dismissal policy?
In order to provide a positive experience for all students, the Children’s Arts Institute maintains the right to dismiss any child. Cooperation and mutual respect are mandatory requirements of our program.

What if my child is attending camp alone?
If your child will be coming to camp alone, please let us know and we will make every effort to introduce them to other campers. Our counselors and teachers will also be advised as well.
