The Art Place Camp Guidelines and Policies

DROP-OFF and PICK-UPIt is important for us to ensure proper supervision for our camper’s comfort and well-being.  We ask that campers arrive NO EARLIER than 15 minutes prior to their class start time and be picked up at the time their last class finishes each day.  All adults must present photo I.D. which matches a name on the student’s “Emergency Contacts” Form.

FIRST DAY of CAMP, What to expectUpon Arrival on the first day of camp, parents should accompany their camper to the lobby to be checked in and to submit or sign the Emergency Contact Form and Waiver Agreement Form. We MUST have this agreement signed and returned on the first day of camp or your camper cannot be permitted to participate.  *Teen campers with completed forms in hand do not need a parent present for check-in.*

BEHAVIOR and SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES:  We hope everyone is excited and on their best behavior at camp.  Our goal is to provide a safe, positive learning experience to all of our campers.  Please understand that behaviors that compromise our goal cannot be tolerated.  Parents will be called and asked to pick up their camper if they are disruptive to the class or endanger themselves or others.  We will need to be informed of any special circumstances, needs or restrictions your camper may have before the first day of camp. 

DRESS: Art is MESSY! Please dress appropriately! 

SNACK and LUNCH:  We will have breaks at different times through-out the day depending on the camps your child is registered for. Each class will be taking snack breaks at the instructor’s discretion.  Please do not send items that need to be refrigerated.  Campers registered for an AM and PM camp must be registered for Lunch Bunch between their camps.
