Please be sure to fill out and return an Emergency Contact/Medical Information form on the first day of camp.  Click here to download the Emergency Contact/Medical Information Form.

Drop Off / Pick Up:  Parents and guardians should come to the Upstairs Classroom at GCCA to drop students off and pick students up.  Instructors will not allow children to leave class until a parent or guardian arrives in the classroom for pick up. GCCA can ONLY be responsible for children/students during the hours for which they are registered.  Parents and children are welcome to enter the classroom at the stated start time but students will not be supervised by the Instructor before or after class time. 

Completed Art Projects:  Student work must be picked up by the week after camp ends. We strongly recommend that you bring your child with you to help identify the project.  Art projects left after the last day of Summer Art Camp will be discarded.  Make-up sessions for missed camp time will not be offered.  Art projects that are not completed during art camp must be taken home to complete - art camp instructors will not offer additional class time to complete projects.
