SIBLING DISCOUNT:
Save $15 when you enroll two or more children in any camp.

This discount will only apply toward siblings, not per individual. Siblings do not have to be registered for the same camp, however, registration for all camps must take place at the same time. This discount can only be applied when registering over the phone or in person, and can only be used once – the $15 will be taken off the total tuition.


CAMP DEPOSIT:

A $25 per camp non-refundable deposit is required when registering for a camp. The deposit will be applied to the camp tuition and can be transferred to another camp week, but will not be refunded. Any balance due on camps must be paid in full before the first day of camp.


WITHDRAWING FROM A CAMP:

If a student should need to withdraw from a camp and we receive notice at least three weeks prior to the start of that camp, a full refund will be issued, less the $25 deposit. Cancellations received with less than a three week notice will receive a 50%

account credit. Credits can be used for any Danceworks class or program and will remain on the student’s account for one year from the date the credit is issued. Transferring camp fees from one week to another week is possible depending on availability of the individual week. Advance notice is required to transfer to another week.
