Class FAQs

  • The class says “Grades 3-6” but I think my 2nd grader can handle it. Can I enroll them anyway? Unfortunately, No. We choose the age ranges for our classes for a number of reasons, including maturity, development, and concepts that students will have encountered in school according to state standards. Let us know your interests and we can probably steer you towards a better-suited class!
  • What if I want to transfer to a different class, or I need to cancel a class? See our complete class policies here
  • Can you come to my school and give a class? Maybe! We offer a sub-set of our standard classes at off-site locations. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.
  • Can I sign up my child for both morning and afternoon summer camp classes? Yes, absolutely. Students enrolled in both morning and afternoon summer camp classes get free drop-in time between classes. Please send them with a nut-free lunch!
  • Should I pack my child a snack? During vacation weeks and summer camps, we provide a small snack, but you are welcome to pack your child an additional nut-free snack for each class they're taking.
  • What if I want to transfer to a different class, or I need to cancel a class? For Vacation Classes (February, April, and Summer Camp), you may request a transfer or full refund up to two weeks before the first day of class. After this time, no refund or credit will be issued.
  • What is your vacation class make-up policy? Sorry, we do not offer make-ups for vacation classes. If the class was missed due to a cancelation on our end, we may offer a partial refund for the missed day(s).
