2. How do you handle lunch?
Each camper should bring a non-perishable lunch and a drink. Due to concerns about food allergies, campers may not share food! Please do not include nut products in lunches or snacks.
3. Do you offer extended camp?
Yes. Extended camp runs from 3:00 pm-6:00 pm. Please register for this when you sign up for camp.
4. Does Extended Care provide snacks?
Yes, we will provide snacks and drinks. Snack includes an assortment of juice, water, chips, pretzels, goldfish, and fruit snacks. Campers are welcome to bring their own snacks. Please do not include nut products in lunches or snacks.
5. How do I pick up my child from Extended Care?
Students remaining for extended care will be in the Extended Care classroom on the third floor (the last classroom at the end of the hall). On designated days, campers will be outside in the Town Square. A note on the door of the Administrative Office will relay where campers are on any given day. Campers will only be released for pickup to parents or those other adults who are listed on the Release form filled out at the beginning of each camp session.
6. Do you provide transportation to and from camp?
No, each child must be brought to the camp and checked in/out each day by either a parent or those individuals named on the Release form. We will not allow children with anyone not named on the Release form.
7. Is there a special program on the last day of the session?
Due to the breadth and scope of our art projects, we now are unable to conduct the Family Open House on the last day of the session. Students will bring home all their projects on the last day of the session or as they are completed.
8. What should I pack for my child and what should I leave home?
What to bring?
- Wear play clothes and sneakers (closed toe shoes).
- Pack water and a non-perishable lunch. If needed, your child can use a small backpack.
- An extra shirt or shorts may be needed occasionally if an art project gets especially messy.
What NOT to bring?
- Toys, iPods, handheld computer games or other electronic entertainment systems.
*** Campers will not be allowed to use any of these items during the camp day and VisArts cannot be responsible for them if they are lost. ***
- Shoes with wheels and open toe shoes are strictly prohibited.
