School Break Camps

At La Dee Da we offer a unique creative program that is like no other in town! Our curriculum is well researched and thought out, we use quality art supplies, hire qualified staff and offer smaller group settings. With a combination of arts & crafts, in-house field trips, movement, music, books and plenty of play time, there is something for everyone! Students work on multiple projects during the week, some of which are progressive in nature. For this reason, we do not offer single day camps over the summer period. Our curriculum has been designed to be an adjunct filler to traditional day camps that you might be planning to send your child to this summer. Sign up for one or multiple weeks!

Tuition cost is the same for all weeks except this year over July 3 & 4 there will be no camp and tuition has been prorated. There is a one time  $35 summer registration fee per household. This includes a camp t-shirt for all campers, all art supplies, Wednesday popsicle day, and Friday cheese pizza! Afternoon snack is also included for full-day campers.

Attendance & Cancellation

Although we are very flexible, we expect enrolled students to attend camp/classes on the day they register. We staff up and plan for projects based on enrolled students. We do not offer make-up days for absences. We do not refund tuition for absences. No show, no call, no communication equals no refunds or credits.  We staff up and base our projects on enrollment. Due to current COVID precautions, our capacity has changed as well. Your enrollment confirms a spot for your child which means we might not have been able to take another camper. If any special circumstances need to be addressed with the director. Credit will only be issued towards  arts and crafts kits on the go! We will need 3-5 days to fulfill any requests during our prime camp season. Please visit our SHOP section to take advantage of all that we have to offer.

Cancelation for Summer 2023: We are a small family owned community art studio. These last few years have been extremely challenging and we have done our very best to pivot our business while providing quality service and care for our students. We appreciate the support our community has shown us as we navigated unprecedented times. We are unable to provide any refunds for canceled camps after our normal cancellation policy listed below. Please make sure you read carefully and understand that there are NO FULL REFUNDS being issued after April 1, 2023. However, we do acknowledge individual situations and the uncertainty of our times. This needs to be determined on a case by case basis and a partial or full credit may be issued towards Art Kits To Go at the discretion of studio director after April 1, 2022. Please contact us at [email protected] to arrange for a credit issue and to redeem on any programming.

Summer 2023 Registration Policies

A one time $35 summer registration fee per household is required at signup. All prices include Wednesday popsicles, Friday weekly pizza, camp swag and all quality art supplies.

The entire balance of camp fees is due no later than April 30, 2023 to secure discount pricing. Registrations occurring after April 30th must be paid in full at time of purchase.

Changing Weeks

Registration fee allows for a one-time date change prior to April 30, 2023. Changes after this date will incur a $35 per child/week fee. All changes are based on camp availability and must be approved by the camp director. We request that families notify us of date changes as soon as possible as space is limited and sessions fill up quickly.

Refund & Cancellation Policy:

La Dee Da will honor cancellation deposit refund requests as follows:

  1. In accepting your camp registration, La Dee Da reserves a place for your child and hires staff according to registrations and deposits paid. Therefore, NO refunds or credits will be given after April 30, 2023.
  2. Any cancellation requests made before April 1, 2022 will receive a full refund minus a $50 cancellation fee. All cancellation requests MUST be made in writing. Cancellation requests made between April 1, 2023 and April 30, 2023 will receive a 50% refund, minus $35 registration fees.  La Dee Da is unable to provide refunds or credits after April 30, 2023 due to limited enrollment and expenses incurred.  We understand situations arise and plans can change! La Dee Da will allow you to give your spot (less registration fee) to a friend or family member but will be unable to assist in finding replacement campers for your child’s spot. Please provide notifications of enrollment changes including the name and age of the new camper via email to [email protected] We do not provide refunds for absences, late arrivals, or early withdrawals of campers.
  3. No deposits/tuition will be refunded on or after April 30th, 2023, but is available to be transferred based on availability without additional charges.
  4. If illness causes your child to miss 3 or more consecutive days in one week of camp, you can submit a doctor's note as proof of illness and therefore be eligible to receive a partial credit on your account for that specific week (minus registration fees and deposits).
  5. The refund & cancellation policy also applies towards fees paid for early and post camp care.
  6. Campers under the age of 5 are not eligible for our full day camp program.

    Behavior Guidelines:

    Please read our behavior policy with your camper before camp.

    We expect campers to act respectfully at all times when they are on our property or participating in our programs. Campers are to behave in a mature, responsible way and respect the rights and dignity of others and all La Dee Da property.

    Actions will reflect the Four Core Values:

    • Campers take Responsibility for their actions.
    • Campers Respect themselves, each other, camp equipment and the environment.
    • Honesty will be the basis for all relationships and interactions.
    • Campers will be Caring in their relationships with others.

    Campers should talk to a counselor or any camp staff member if they are uncomfortable with any experiences or need assistance while at camp.

    Discipline Procedures:

    When a camper does not follow the behavior guidelines, we will take the following action steps as behavior problems progress.

    1. Staff will redirect the camper to more appropriate behavior.
    2. If inappropriate behavior continues, the camper will be reminded of behavior guidelines and camp rules, and the camper will be asked to decide on action steps to correct his/her behavior.
    3. If a child’s behavior still does not meet expectations and is affecting the experience of other campers, he/she will be referred to the Camp Director.
    4. If inappropriate behavior continues, as a final action step the camper may be dismissed from camp.

    Examples of unacceptable behavior:

    • Stealing or damaging property (personal or camp property)
    • Refusal to participate in activities or cooperate with staff

However, there are a few camps geared especially for our older campers Ages 6+.
    • Camp Groups: Campers are broken into 3 different groups based on age and or development.
