Di Morgan updated: Summer Art Camps @ Morgan Arts Centre
Okay, I don't want to arouse a panic...however if you are planning to send your child to CTW the end of July and have not yet sent in the enrollment forms and paid, I want to remind you of a couple things:
1) the camp is filled with 36 children (more than that may be "wait-listed")
2) enrollment form and full payment will insure your space only IF you are among the first 36 children. Others will be notified and asked if they want to be wait-listed.
3) as of this afternoon 5/19/19 we have 31 enrollment forms and paid children on the list...we also have 10 children whose parents have said they plan to send their children to this camp again this year.
4) In case you are wondering...No, sorry...this is the way we do it and No we will not offer a second week of Children's Theater Workshop.
5) We do still have room in the Camp Picasso weeks 1 &2...I think about 8 spaces each.
