FAQs

Children ages three and up can register and sign up for our Summer and Seasonal Camps. Our educational theories, curriculum and activities incorporate experiential learning, hands-on activities and exploring centered around school-age kids.

Kids Garden is a drop-in creative arts learning center and we always keep drop-in spaces, however even those fill up! During busy times of the year, including summer and when schools are out, we encourage reservations to secure your child’s spot. Each center has a capacity limit and it can be reached. There may be times we will have to ask your child to return at another hour. If you know you need care, please plan ahead with a reservation. Please note that we charge a no-call no-show fee.

We also value movement and activity! We understand the importance and benefits of incorporating movement, play, and breaks alongside creative work. During our camp days and weeks, we take movement breaks, have unstructured playtime, playset time and dance parties!

Absolutely! You can make the camps a full day by registering your child for both a morning and afternoon camp in the same week. We recommend adding prepaid dollars on your account for extra snacks and hours. While we're thrilled to offer this opportunity, it's important to consider if your child is a motivated artist/camper who will enjoy a full day of camps. This might not be the best fit for every child, and you know your child best!

Kids Garden provides a snack and lunch during camp. We ask all campers to bring a labeled water bottle and to wear socks inside the center. Please label your child's items and leave any other items in our front cubbies.
