Camp FAQ

Have questions about Yucandu Summer Camps? We have answers! Peruse our handy Camp FAQ for all of the info you need to know about Yucandu Summer Camps.
Specifically, what projects will they make?
  • We plan for three major projects and several small ones. We like to take advantage of the consecutive days they’re here, so we create projects with “layers”.  This means they will be working on more than one project at a time and some of them for three to four days in a row. For a really specific answer, samples can be seen in the studio by late spring. We hope you are excited about the experience as a whole, rather than the specific end-product.

Does the upcoming grade level mean going out of or going into?
  • This is totally your call. Parents make this decision based on scheduling, car pools and maturity/skill levels.  However, the Kindergarten age group does NOT include pre-K or junior K.

If we need to miss a day or cancel all together, what will happen?
  • All sales are final.  When possible, thorough take-home kits will be provided.  Because of the limited capacity and high demand of Yucandu Art Camps, we do not offer makeups or refunds for missed days, even if you know you will miss ahead of time.

How does lunch or snack work?
  • The 1st-5th grade campers need to bring a sack lunch, and k-3rd and 3rd-6th grade campers a healthy snack.  They break together for as long as they need in the classroom or at the neighboring outdoor dining area. 
  • The 6th-9th grader’s need to bring a sack dinner.

What kinds of projects will they do?
  • In general, our camp projects:
    • Teach a variety of skills including building armatures, clay building techniques and more.
    • Include several tactile experiences working with fiber, wood, paint, clay, wire, paper and mosaic tiles.
    • Provide a balance of 2D and 3D techniques.
    • Work in at least three scale sizes (S, M, L).

What if I need to drop my child off early?
  • We do not offer early drop off for campers and we ask we please pick up your child on time.  

If I sign my child up for more than one camp, will they be doing different projects at the second camp?
  • The projects will vary to each camp theme. But, keep in mind that kids LOVE repetition. Actually, repetition is a great opportunity to expand new skills and take them to the next level—similar to other kinds of camp like dance or soccer.  Usually we hear comments like “Oh, I LOVE this project!”  Similar projects make for wonderful gift-giving opportunities, too.

Is there a discount for signing up for more than one camp?
  • All campers are receiving the best price possible.

What should they wear?
  • Definitely wear clothes for getting messy. We use artist-quality materials, which includes lots of paint that doesn’t come out of clothes.

What is the camper/counselor ratio?
  • We have at least one counselor for every eight campers. Of course, there are always plenty of other staff members around if further help is needed.

How does drop-off and pick-up work?
  • Please come inside the first day to drop off. You will need to confirm registration info and cell numbers. After that day, you may drop off at the door. However, please come inside each day to pick up your camper.

I did not receive a confirmation email after registering for my camp. What do I do?
  • You should automatically receive a confirmation email shortly after registering for a camp or class. If it does not show up in your main Inbox, please check your Spam folder, as it may be located there. If you still do not receive an email, please call or email us and we will help you receive the confirmation you need.
