Cancelation Policy

If you cannot attend a camp and let us know 2 weeks prior to the day camp begins we will offer you a credit toward another camp in the future less 10% for registration/office fee.  Cancelations after 2 week prior will receive a 50% credit and cancelations within 48 hours receive no refund. We wish we could allow everyone to cancel when Grandma comes to town or someone is sick but we are unable to fill those seats at that point. If you feel you have a special situation feel free to e-mail us. We try and be as accommodating as possible, but cannot promise a credit. Thanks for understanding!

What to expect during a Gilchrist Art Camp

Gilchrist Art Camp focuses on creativity, positivity, all while having the most fun possible.  All of our campers know we only have 2 rules... one sends you home, and the other is the most important of all!

The only two rules at camp are:

  • "Nothing Negative" (what she painted, what he wore, what's in his/her lunch, how she drew a bird etc...) If we hear anything negative the camper is asked to leave camp. In 7 years we've NEVER had to send anyone home. All campers love this rule! It creates a very positive, safe, and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone, and you would be shocked at the positive kind words we hear all day long!

  • The only other rule, the most important rule of all is... "HAVE FUN"!!! Everyone also loves this rule, and we work hard to make it the most enjoyable, positive and fun week(s) of your child's summer.

"Working with kids for the last 14 years I have realized that when these 2 rules are  followed, they are truly the only 2 rules you need! Its refreshing to see such positively inspired happy kids all summer and this is why I love my job!" -Lisa Peterson (owner)
