Build Your Own Camp *New this year!*
Dates: Available weeks are listed below.
Choose the week/timeframe that works for your family, and build your own camp with your child’s friends. After we establish your week of camp with one of our instructors, they will work with you to pick a theme for camp that works with the kid’s interests, and they will base crafts, dance activities, and outdoor games around that theme. Children must be at least 4 years old.
Each group only needs to fill out the pre-registration Google Form once. After pre-registering by submitting the form, we will follow-up by email to all parents in the group. We will create your week of camp in our registration system, DanceStudio-Pro. Each parent will get a log in to DanceStudio-Pro to complete their registration and pay their deposit of 50%. Deposits from all families must be paid before your registration is confirmed.
