A Note about Supply Lists

Some classes may have a supply list of things you should bring with to camp.  Most supplies will be provided with minimal supplies actually needed to be brought for most classes.  Check your class pages to see if a list is required.  Please call or e-mail us if you have questions.

Special Features

Camper artwork will be displayed at our Exhibition Show in the Lawton Gallery on the last day of the camp from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Awards are determined by the Summer Art Camp faculty and will be presented at 4:00 p.m.

Scholarships

Nearly half of Summer Art campers receive full or partial scholarships from parent groups, school clubs, and civic and service organizations. Be sure to contact your art teacher or local organizations directly to see if there are any scholarships available.

Cancellation Policy

In the event a camper must cancel, the Summer Camps Office should be notified no later than one month before the start date of the camp session in order to receive a refund, less a non-refundable deposit of $100. Requests received after that date will not receive a refund. No refunds will be made for withdrawal due to homesickness, sending a camper home for disciplinary reasons, or after the camp has started.

In the event a camper requests to switch camp sessions, an additional $25 processing fee will be applied.

We reserve the right to cancel any camp due to low enrollment; in such a case, all fees paid will be refunded or the camper can choose to apply fees to a different camp/class in the same year.

Overpayments of less than $10 will not be refunded.
