ARTS CENTER PARENT PACK

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We are so excited to welcome your child for another round of camp at The Arts Center!

Please carefully review the following forms, as they contain important information about our program.  These forms must be completed and submitted before the first camp starts.  You can fill these forms in right here on the website. 

*Please note that anyone requesting special needs accommodations should do so no later than two weeks before the start of camp, on forms 5 and 5b below.

ALL OF THE FORMS ON THIS PAGE MUST BE FILLED OUT AND SUBMITTED TO THE ARTS CENTER BEFORE CAMP BEGINS (ON DAY 1).

GENERAL CAMP INFO

Camp Cancellations

If camp is canceled for any reason, parents/guardians will be notified via email at least 2 hours before the start of class.
Canceled camps will either be rescheduled or refunded to the original form of payment in full. Inclement weather cancellations are based on the Troy Central School District.

Refunds

No refunds, credits, adjustments, or pro-rated discounts can be made if your child misses camp for any reason (including illness, scheduling conflicts, etc.). To ensure you receive a full refund for withdrawal, your request must be processed at least 14 days before the start of camp.

Pizza Day!

On Thursdays, students will be provided with lunch!

2 slices of pizza (cheese), 2 Cookies (Oreos, gluten-free are available), juice box/water.

CAMP POLICIES + FAQ

Pronouns

Pronouns

The Arts Center respects all students’ gender expression and will use whatever name and pronoun your child(ren) request(s). If your child goes by a pronoun different from their perceived gender, please note that on the third form on this page.

Student Absences

If you know your student will be late or absent from a day of camp, please speak to our front desk staff by calling 518-273-0552 so we may inform your instructor. If your student is experiencing illness including fever, nausea, vomiting, or other significant ailments, we do ask that your child stays home for the day. Prorated refunds cannot be issued for missed classes.

What to Wear/Bring

Students should wear comfortable clothes that may be stained with paint or other art media. All art materials are provided by The Arts Center. Students are welcome to bring their own smock or apron. Students are not provided with individual storage spaces (i.e., cubbies) for their personal items, so we recommend that students bring backpacks.

Do not bring objects of value! The Arts Center is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged items.

Food

There are two snack breaks and a lunch hour each day. Students are not provided with food or snacks, except on Thursday’s pizza day. Refrigeration and microwave are not available. Please make sure to pack enough snacks!

Because many children have food allergies or are sensitive to ingredients in certain food products, it is our policy that lunches not be traded or shared between students. To protect children allergic to peanuts, we also ask that students do not bring peanut butter or peanut products to The Arts Center.

Going Outside

Campers often take walks during class, accompanied by the instructor. Weather permitting, campers may also occasionally take their lunch hour outside, accompanied by Camp Counselors.

CAMP COMMUNITY STANDARDS

The Arts Center of the Capital Region fosters an environment of respect and inclusivity. All campers of the Arts Center of the Capital Region must abide by the following rules:

  1. Treat those around them with respect and dignity as our young community is learning to identify and express themselves. This refers to our community members’ creative expression and use of names and pronouns.
  2. Always follow safety instructions given by the teacher and safely manipulate the material they are handling.
  3. Work independently and without excessively interrupting the instructor and/or other students.
  4. Adhere to our Harassment Prevention Policy in which no member of the community shall be subjected to harassment or discrimination based on a person’s actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or sex on The Arts Center property. No hitting, pushing, bullying, cursing, teasing, or any other behavior that will negatively impact one another.
  5. Adhere to all local, state, and federal laws. Smoking of any kind, including vaping, is strictly prohibited.

Discipline Policy

The Arts Center has the right to request a student modify his/her/their behavior and to dismiss a student for not adhering to the above community standards. Due to the short time frame of camp, The Arts Center operates on a two-strike policy. Students may be asked to sit out of activities as a result of a strike. After two strikes, the student’s behavior will be reviewed, and they may be expelled from Camp. ACCR will NOT issue a refund to a student who has been expelled due to behavior.

How to Report Violations

Incidents of harassment may be pursued through informal intervention and mediation or the filing of a formal complaint. All reports are kept confidential. Students and parents are encouraged to report bullying incidents to a staff member (The Arts Center CEO, admin staff, instructors, or front desk staff).
