MORE Camp INFORMATION

What happens if the week of workshops I want to sign up for is full?

If your preferred week of workshops is already full, you can join the waitlist via email on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no cost to join a waitlist and no obligation to sign up once you’re on it. If you would like to join a waitlist, please email art@lagrangeartmuseum.orgcreate new email and include the week of camp, age group, name of camper, and phone number.

We will contact you immediately as soon as a spot opens up for the week you are waitlisted for. If we do not hear back from you within 24 hours, we reserve the right to offer the spot to the next person on the waitlist.

What is the cancellation policy?

Any cancellation or change made more than two weeks before your child’s first day of workshop carries an administrative fee of $25; if you cancel your registration before the two-week deadline, you will receive a refund less the $25 fee. No refunds can be given for cancellations made less than two weeks prior to the start of the selected workshop.

The LaGrange Art Museum reserves the right to cancel any camp that does not meet minimum enrollment (six campers) or for other unforeseen circumstances. We will do our best to notify families at least one week prior to the start of a camp session if a particular camp is canceled. Any payments made toward a week of camp that the LaGrange Art Museum cancels will be eligible for a refund or can be applied to another camp if space permits.

What if my student can’t attend the full week?

It’s okay but not recommended. Our curriculum and activities unfold over the five days of workshops, each building on the one before it. You are welcome to sign up and plan on missing days, but we are unable to prorate the cost of the workshop week.
