LCAC Camp Cancellation Policy:

In circumstances that you must cancel your child’s art camp registration, the Center offers 50% back for cancellation two weeks or more before class date is set to begin. 25% back if one week before and nothing if less than a week. If the dates do not align with your schedule or your schedule changes the Center will allow you to switch your child’s registration fee to a different camp session if there’s space available.  We appreciate your understanding as we are a non-profit art and educational organization and these camp sessions require months of planning, staffing hired and supplies ordered.
