How do I register my child for the optional hour supervised lunch?
You can register for this on the first day of camp and pay in person. It is $7.00/day or $35.00/week. If you would like, you can also call ahead of time and pay over the phone 303-377-2353. Your child will need to bring a packed lunch. We are a Peanut Free Zone. Please only pack peanut free lunches. If your child is registered for a morning and afternoon camp (ages 4-12 only), the lunch fee is waived and campers just need to bring a packed lunch. Please keep in mind we do have a limited number of spots for lunch and may have to turn people away the day of. All of our full day campers already have a secure spot reserved for lunch.
If my child is 3 years old, can they attend camps for the full day 9am-4pm?
Our morning camps 9am-12pm are for our three year old campers. We have found a full day (7 hours) has proven to be uniquely challenging for a three year old child. In order to provide highest quality of programing we are only offering half day classes for our three year old campers.
If my child is (5 or 8) can they join the next age group up (6-8 or 9-12 yr olds)?
Your child's birthdate must be within a month (turning 6 or 9) in order to register for the older age group. As our classes are combined ages, we want to ensure that our instructors are meeting the needs and challenging the participants in age appropriate ways and therefor, it is important to register your child for the correct age group.
Do you have before and/or aftercare?
We are offering before care (8am-9am) and after care (4pm-5pm) this year for $7/hr for each child. Before and after care must be signed up at least one week in advance. Please call to register your child for before or after care.
Do you provide snack?
Yes, we provide popcorn and water for the first snack, which usually occurs halfway through the class. We also provide Otterpops on Fridays, which are given after clean up time in the remaining 5 minutes of class.
Can I pack my child their own snack?
Yes you are welcome to pack your child their own snack as long as it is peanut free. We are a peanut free zone and we have many kids that participate with serious peanut allergies. Your child may have their own snack in addition to the snack we provide. If you would not like your child to have the snack we provide, please let us know ahead of time at check in. If your child has an allergy (which must be stated on their medical form) to a snack that we provide, we will not give them a snack and we do not have alternate snacks to offer.
Do you need forms to be filled out for camps?
Yes. After you register your child for camp, you can go to your account management page to fill out the required forms by clicking here: https://artgaragedenver.com/users/students. These forms can be submitted digitally. To access these forms on your own, sign into the website: https://artgaragedenver.com/signin then click on your name on the upper right corner to reach your Account Management page. Then click ‘Students' to see the required missing forms. If multiple children are attending a camp this week or later in the school year, please be sure to fill out a different Medical Form for each child. After submission your profile will be complete and you’ll be in our system for any future camps or classes as well!
What does it mean if the camp I want to register for says 'Please Call'?
If the camp you would like to register for says 'Please Call', that means it is on a waitlist. Please call us if you would like to be put on the waitlist. If you get our voicemail please leave: Your name, your child's name, child's age, and camp name or dates.
How likely is it that I will get into a camp on a waitlist?
It varies from week to week, but most of the changes that do happen are within a couple days or the day of the camp beginning.
Does my child need to attend summer camp for the entire week?
We encourage your child to attend the full week of our summer camps to get the full experience and to ensure that the campers all finish their projects.
What if my child is not potty trained yet?
Unfortunately, your child is not able to attend camps or classes at The Art Garage if they are not potty trained.
Can you pro-rate a summer camp if my child can not attend the full week?
This depends on the specific camp enrollment and what the teacher has planned throughout the camp as some camps will be working on a long-term project throughout the week. If enrollments are low two weeks prior to camp and if teachers are open to having campers attend only 3 or 4 out of the 5 days of camp, we will open pro-rated enrollment. To inquire about a pro-rated camp please give us a call, 303-377-2353.
