Our age groups are limited in size to provide a quality program. Camp fees include all supplies, swimming, workshop/programming fees and T-shirt. Fees incurred to CCA from returned checks (NSF) are the responsibility of the parent/guardian. We regret that we cannot provide refunds for time missed due to a change in plans, family vacation or a child's illness.

Parent/guardians are required to complete our camp medical forms amd discuss any physical/behavioral concerns prior to the start of camp.

POOL TRIPS - TBD

Conklin Pool is a 5-minute bus ride away, and provides supervised free swim for our full-day campers each Wednesday afternoon. The pool is life-guarded and counselors are in each part of the pool to supervise. Pool trips during Sessions 1-4 only. Please remember to provide your child with a pool towel, bathing suit and sunscreen.

SNACK

The Center provides a snack for the five to six year old campers during the camp program and for all After Care campers.

LUNCH

Full day campers should bring their own lunch, clearly labeled, in a brown bag or lunch box. Lunches can be refrigerated. In good weather, lunch is eaten outside on the Art Center’s grounds.

DRESS

Campers should dress for the sometimes messy work of active art projects. Smocks and towels for the pool should be marked with your child's name. On scheduled swim days, please send bathing suits and towels. We will change at the Center before going to the pool.

EXHIBITIONS AND PERFORMANCES

There will be an exhibition reception and performance on the final Friday of each session from 2-3pm.
