Terms and Conditions
Refunds and Cancellations
Please choose your seats thoughtfully. Once you have reserved a seat at our ART table, we begin preparing for your arrival! A reserved seat at our table is yours whether you choose to attend class or not. Seats which are reserved but unconfirmed/unpaid within 10 days following registration will be forfeit to a student on our wait list. Once you have reserved your seat, we begin preparing for your child's arrival to our camps and a seat at our table is reserved just for them. In order for us to maintain our great programs and run our small business, ARTifact cannot issue full refunds, transfers, credits, or prorates of any kind. A 50% refund will be issued if a seat is canceled 30 days before the start of a workshop/holiday camp/class or semester. For Summer Camps, a 50% refund will be issued if a seat is cancelled by May 1st (30 days or more before June 1st). After June 1st, no refunds, transfers, or credits will be issued for Summer Camps. No full refunds, transfers, or credits of any kind. Sorry, no exceptions.
COVID-19 UPDATE: ARTifact was built on the foundation of a high quality education program where the safety and care of children is paramount. During this unprecedented time, we know you might need more time to plan your Summer. We have expanded our refund policy to give families as much time as possible to consider their options.
-Register now, but pay later. Up to 10 days later! If you decide to cancel your seat during the 10 day grace period, no tuition is due but we would love a heads-up so we can give another camper the opportunity to join.
-Baked into tuition is a non-refundable $167 registration fee (for Private Pods, the 'registration fee' is the $2500 nonrefundable deposit)
-Individual camp tuition (non-private pod) is 100% refundable if canceled more than 20 days before the start of camp, minus the registration fee
-Individual camp tuition (non-private pod) is 50% refundable if canceled more than 15 days before the start of camp, minus the registration fee
-Camp tuition is nonrefundable if canceled less than 14 days before the start of camp
-Private Pods will have 24 hours from time of registration to pay the camp deposit and 10 days thereafter to pay tuition in full.
-Private Pods are 50% refundable (minus the deposit) before May 20th and nonrefundable thereafter.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept drop-in students or guarantee we will be able to transfer students enrollment in one camp to another. Therefore, families should plan to remain enrolled in the camp they registered for and follow the cancellation and refund guidelines above if their selected camp no longer works for their schedule. No transfers of any kind will be possible if that camp session has already begun.
An outbreak of COVID-19 within our program will result in immediate termination of the program and my child's participation until further notice, without refund or credit.
