Online Registration System

Creative Summer utilizes the Online Registration System CampBrain for all Camper registrations, optional purchases, email communication, and Tax Statements.


A $150 deposit per camper, per session, is due at the time of registration. This deposit will be applied to your final balance due. We accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Creative Summer DOES NOT accept American Express. The deposit cannot be paid by check. All deposits become non-refundable three days after registration.

Tuition balances for all programs are due by Monday, March 11, 2019.

Final Balance

Tuition must be paid in full by Monday, March 11, 2019.

Refund Policies

Tuition Refund Policy
Parents must inform our office in writing if they are withdrawing their child from any Creative Summer program. E-mail notification is acceptable. All deposits are non-refundable three days after registration. Tuition is refunded according to the following schedule:

  • Withdrawal on or before Thursday April 11, 2019: All tuition refunded except $150 deposit.
  • Tuition becomes non-refundable after Thursday, April 11, 2019, regardless of circumstance.

Extended Day/Bus Refund Policy
Pre-paid Extended Day and bus service are fully refundable if cancelled before the first day of scheduled service. For bus service, cancellation should occur before the first day of each session; for weekly pre-paid Extended Day (a.m. or p.m.), cancellation should occur before Monday of each week; for daily Afternoon Extended Day, cancellation should occur the day before (not the day of) scheduled attendance.

If cancelled on the first scheduled day of service or later, refunds for Extended Day or bus service will be prorated to the day after notice of cancellation, and service already used will be charged at the drop-in rate.

Administrative Fee
If a camp withdrawal qualifies for a refund that includes the $150 camp deposit, an administrative fee of three percent (3%) of any balance paid in excess of $150 will be deducted from the refund to cover the cost of credit card processing.

Waitlist Process

The Creative Summer programs each have a limited number of spaces available per session. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. If a program fills, we will begin a waitlist for that section.

If a spot becomes available, we will contact families in the order that the waitlist requests came in. Families from the waitlist will be contacted by phone and email and will have three days to accept or drop their spot. After three days we will move to the next family on the list.

Please contact the Creative Summer Office with questions about the waitlist process or to check your child's position on the waitlist.

Creative Campers Class Selection

During the initial registration period in December and January, families are registering for the specific program they would like their camper to take part in (Creative Campers, Creative 4s, 5s, 6s, or 7s.)

For our Creative Campers (ages 7-13), the actual Class Selection process takes place for registered campers from April 23 through May 1, 2019. During this time, families will register for their camper(s)' five class period day. We will send all Creative Campers families a class list by grade/period by the first week in April.
