*Each two-week session will include two Field Trip Fridays with a performance on the second Thursday of the session!

The one week sessions may also be attended as a daily drop-in, for a fee of $65 per day.

A one-time, non-fundable supply fee of $5.00 will be charged per student at the time of registration or by cash or check the first day of camp.


registration & REFUNDS

All registrations will be subject to a nonrefundable $4.95 processing fee. Registrations cancelled more than one week prior to the camp starting (Sunday at midnight), with or without prior payment, will be subject to a cancellation fee of $50 per session plus processing and supply fees. Accounts will be refunded in full less the processing and cancellation fee up to one week before the camp begins. Registrations cancelled less than one week before the camp will be refunded 50% of the payment, less the processing and cancellation fee.

If no payments have been made, you are still responsible for paying the cancellation and processing fees. You will not be eligible for scholarships in the future unless this balance is settled.


scholarships, Balances & PAYMENT PLANS

To apply for a scholarship, email Alli at alli@upturnarts.org with the number of children in the household requiring financial aid and the session(s) in which you are interested in your young artist(s) attending. As scholarships are based on a sliding scale, a copy of 2016’s tax return showing the applicant as head of household is required to be considered for financial aid.

Scholarships will be awarded on a case-by-case basis from Wednesday, March 1 until Saturday April 15.

A $30 deposit and the $4.95 registration fee is due to secure a spot. Please email Alli at alli@upturnarts.org to apply.

Any registrants with an outstanding balance will not be eligible for scholarships in the future unless this balance is settled.

All balances must be paid in full one week prior (Sunday at midnight) to the start of the first camp session. If a balance is not paid, spots may be given to a young artist on the waitlist.

Families registering online are eligible to select a payment plan option as a direct debit to alleviate the up-front cost of camp. Additional payment plan options are available on a case-by-case basis by contacting alli@upturnarts.org.
