Financial Aid

Younger Campers

The program of each camp is designed with a specific age range in mind, though in the past we have had campers younger than our suggested age range interested in more advanced classes. If this is the case for your camper, please inform us before camp registration is complete so that we may discuss the prospect with the instructor. The camp instructor for any session has final say in whether or not a younger camper can join a session geared towards an older age group.

Waiver Required

For insurance purposes, each camper will need a parental release form signed by parents. Children and teens will not be able to participate in the summer camp without a signed waiver. All waivers are included in the registration packet.
