My child is turning 6, can they attend?

Art In The Park services children ages 6-12. If a child is turning 6, their birthday must fall within the week they are attending camp. They must be 6 years old for at least one day in the week (Monday-Friday).

Example: Suraj is 5 years old and turns 6 on Wednesday, August 10th. Suraj can be registered for camp the week of August 8-12, and any weeks thereafter, as they will be 6 years old for 3 days that week. Suraj can not be registered for camp in July or any weeks prior to their birthday.

Starting in 2023, we will be checking for identification for all campers aged 6. Please be prepared to provide a birth certificate for your child.

My child is turning 13, can they attend?

Art In The Park services children ages 6-12. If a child is turning 13, they can attend any week of camp in which they are 12 years old on the first day of the week. 

Example: Hiromi is 12 years old and turns 13 on Tuesday, July 20th. Hiromi can be registered for, and attend camp the week of July 19 - 23 (and any week prior) as they will still be 12 on the first day of the week. Hiromi can not be registered for camp after July 23rd, as they will be 13 years old. 

If your child is 13, please consider registering for our Leader In Training Camp!

To print your Account Statement, please:


All the camps are full. How do I join the waiting list? 

If the camp you want is full, you may add your child's name to the wait list. This process is exactly like the registration process, except no payment is taken

Families on the wait list will be called on a first-come, first-served basis. When availability arises, families will be contacted by email and/or telephone. Generally, we need to hear back from you within 24-48 hours, after which time we will assume you are no longer interested and will offer the space to the next family.
