Silvermine’s Summer Art camps are extremely popular and last minute cancellations pose significant challenges in managing resources effectively as well as accommodating waitlisted students. Our updated policies allow us to better plan staffing, supplies, and programming requirements, ultimately enhancing the overall camp experience for all participants.
