ATTENDANCE/MAKE UP POLICY
Paramount Education does not guarantee that camps cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control (i.e., weather, power outage) will be made up; no refunds will be issued. We do not offer make-up days due to a child’s inability to attend. In rare instances, camps may be cancelled 2-weeks prior to the start of camp due to low enrollment. A full refund will be issued in these cases. We ask that you please communicate any planned absences to the Camp Administrator on the first day of camp. This will help us to create a productive camp rehearsal schedule.
CAMP VIDEO (download) and CAMP PHOTOS (download)
Families will have the opportunity to purchase digital downloads of the camp performance and photographs taken at the final camp performance. These will be added to our online store at a later date.
Any cancellations must be made in writing before May 1st. The tuition will be refunded less a $100 administrative fee. From May 1st – May 31st, only 50% of the tuition will be refunded. There are no refunds after June 1, 2019. If you are registered for camp and need to change sessions, there will be a $50 administrative fee once the change is approved. If your camp session is full or is cancelled due to low enrollment you will be refunded your tuition payment.
DROP OFF/PICK UP
All sessions are held daily from 9am to 4pm. We ask that campers be dropped off no earlier than 8:45am and picked up no later than 4:00pm. Older students are not allowed to walk home from camp without written consent from a guardian. A detailed arrival and dismissal procedure will be communicated to all parents and guardians prior to the start of camp.
EARLY AND AFTER CARE
Early Care is available daily from 8:00am to 9:00am for $100 per camp session.
After Care is available daily from 4:00pm to 5:00pm for $100 per camp session.
If you would like to purchase both Early and After Care, the cost is $175 per session.
You may purchase Early Care or After Care at a rate of $15 per day if you do not need extra care for the entire session.
Early and After care is supervised unstructured time for students and may be purchased at www.austintheatre.org/campstore or during the online registration process. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
LATE PICK UP
Parents/guardians will be assessed a $10 charge if a child is picked up more than 15 minutes after class/camp ends, and an additional $1 per minute thereafter. Please ensure that your child is picked up on time.
Arrangements can be made between Paramount Education and parents/guardians to split the cost of camps into a payment plan. Requests for Payment plans must be received by April 1st. To make arrangements, please write to email@example.com and include “payment plan” in the subject line.
PERSONAL ITEMS/CELL PHONES
We strongly suggest that nothing of value be brought to camp. Cell phones, tablets, and other electronic devices are only allowed to be used during break and lunch times. Paramount Education assumes no responsibility for any lost or damaged personal items.
Paramount Education reserves the right to use photos and videos taken during camps and performances for promotional (via print or the web) and archival purposes only. In an effort to keep our young performances safe and to maintain focus, the taking of photographs, videotaping, and the use of recording devices is not permitted during camp performances. All performances are videotaped and photographed by the Paramount Education. Digital copies of camp performances are available for sale during registration and performance photographs will be shared with camp families after the camp concludes.
Limited scholarships for camps are available and awarded on a case by case basis. If you are interested in receiving a scholarship, please complete the application at www.austintheatre.org/scholarships. Requests for scholarships must be received by April 1st in order to be considered. Scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis. After April 1st scholarships will be awarded based on availability of funds.
In order to provide students with a safe and supportive environment, Paramount Education maintains a strict “Zero Tolerance” policy in regard to physical or verbal abuse, theft, vandalism, and the use of any and all illegal substances. Any student found in violation of this policy will be asked to leave the camp and no refunds will be issued.
