Additional Camp Information and FAQs


If you have any problems registering, you can email your details to register@engagearts.com or call 215.512.7205.  

You can call to pay over the phone, or wait until the first day of camp and pay when you drop off.  Check or cash is preferred, so we're happy to wait until camp starts.  You will receive an email from us after registering with your total tuition that will be due.


Campers must be at least 5 years old at the start of their camp session.  But please check out our other Summer Art Classes for Mom & Me options for little guys.


In past years, most of our campers have been between 5-10 years old, but we've generally also had at least two or three 11-13 year old's attend each session as well.


Smocks are provided, but often materials are used which do not wash out, so please dress children accordingly.

Feel free to send along a water bottle and snack.  Water will be available to campers, but snacks are not included.


Phones are allowed, but should be kept on silent during class and only checked in between classes or at lunch.  Please do not send other electronics as there are always plenty of art supplies to keep them busy during down times.


Please let us know if your child has an allergy, even if you're not staying for lunch, so we can be sure to make other campers aware and limit exposure with snacks and such.


If you can only take one week of camp or would need to split sessions, please call to make arrangements.  We will try to accommodate requests, but cannot make any promises.


We occasionally need to wait-list camp registrations for popular weeks/classes.  We will let you know as soon as possible if a spot becomes available.  If you need to make other arrangements and can't wait, we of course understand, just please let us know so we can take you off the list.
