How early can I pick up?
If the participant has somewhere they need to be, please tell the instructors at check-in when you will be picking your participant up. Otherwise we ask that you do not pick up before 2:45 pm, as we like them to participate in the camp chant & clean up.

We allow a grace period of 10 minutes. After that we charge $1.00 a minute.
Are there makeup days if I miss a day?
If your participant is sick please call or email us before the start of camp. We will do our best effort to schedule a makeup day. There are no makeup days for no shows. We do not issue refunds on purchases. Rescheduling is allowed up to 1 week prior to the original scheduled dates.
Can I stay and watch?
We do not recommend it but if you choose to stay, please stay off to the side where the child cannot easily see you. We want the participants to fully participate in the camp and they perform better if they know you are not around. The participant needs to adhere to camp rules & stay in the camp boundaries. If the participant sees you and wanders off, it is hard to know who is watching them.
What if we need to cancel?
We do not offer refunds on purchases. Rescheduling is allowed up to 1 week prior to the original scheduled dates.
Can we do drop-ins?
In order to adhere to our safety ratio, we do not allow drop-ins. Registration online ends 12 hours to the start of the next days camp so you need to sign up before 9pm the night before.
