We may be able to move your child to another week or camp depending on availability. But please note that some weeks fill up very quickly so changing weeks may not be possible.

Expect your child to get messy at art camp! Children should wear comfortable clothing that can get messy. Children are welcome to bring an apron or large t-shirt to wear over their clothes.
