Summer Camp FAQ’s

Frequently Asked Questions for Camp

Can I cancel my camps and receive a refund?

Please note that most camps will fill quickly. There is a $15 cancellation fee that will be charged for each cancellation. If you cancel two or more weeks in advance (before the camp your child is signed up for) you will receive a full discount, minus the $15 cancellation per camp. If cancellation occurs less than two weeks prior to their camp you will not receive a refund or a credit. If cancellation occurs less than two weeks prior due to illness or an emergency you will receive a credit. Switching to a different camp with open spots is an option with no fee. If you need to switch to a different camp please, e-mail Jess.

What if my child is signed up for both a morning and afternoon camp?
If your camper is staying all day, we’ll have lunch during the hour break in between the morning and afternoon sessions.  All day campers should pack a lunch and a water bottle.

What happens at camp?
Campers will have opportunity to experience a range of art mediums, practice the skills taught and create personal artworks.

When can I see what my child created at camp?
Students may take drawings, color pages and sketches home throughout the week. On the last day of camp, we will hold a Camp Art Show 20 minutes before camp ends (12:10pm and 3:40pm) to showcase all student work. Adults are invited to come to our lower level classroom to see artwork and help package to take home. An invitation to the show will be sent out the week of camp.

What should my child bring with them to camp?
Single session campers will need to pack a snack and water bottle/drink for camp.  Snack time is at 11:15 am for the morning session and 2:45pm for the afternoon session. Please make sure your child had breakfast or lunch and is ready to create!

Full day campers should bring a water bottle and lunch.

What should my child wear?
While clay will wash out, we cannot guarantee that paint will wash out of clothing. Please have your children dress in clothes that they can create in! Hair ties for longer hair are highly recommended for students in pottery wheel or painting classes.

Do you have a COVID-19 policy?
We are not currently requiring masks in the building for our vaccinated customers.  QCC will continue to follow CDC guidelines and recommendations.  Our policies may change based on CDC updates and the level of infection in the area.  Any issues involving COVID-19 will be handled on a case-by-case basis with these factors in mind.
