Policies & Forms
Updated Policies re: COVID-19:
For the 2022 Camp season, ACA has instituted numerous policy and procedure updates in compliance with mandatory safety standards for operation of its Vacation Arts Camp as set forth in the Massachusetts Child and Youth Serving Programs Reopen Approach: Minimum Requirements for Health and Safety (MRHS) in response to COVID-19. Please consult the updated documents below before choosing to participate in our 2022 summer camp programs.
COVID Vaccination Policy:
ACA requires proof of full COVID vaccination for all eligible camp participants (ages 5 and above). We request that proof of vaccination be submitted along with campers' required First Aid & Emergency Contact paperwork and no later than one week before the start of the camp program for which your child is enrolled. Alternatively, campers can provide 2 negative PCR COVID tests
1 taken within 72 hours prior to the start of camp
1 taken midway through the camp week (by Wednesday)
Should participants fail to provide proof of vaccination or notify us in writing about the PCR test option by the start of their particular camp program, they will not be permitted to join ACA's camp programs and ACA's standard camp cancellation policy will go into effect (which can be found below).
Required Camper Forms:
After registering, please send in your child's Emergency & First Aid Form, their COVID Vaccination Record, and a copy of their latest immunization record. We ask that forms be sent in 2 weeks prior to the start of the camp week for which the child is enrolled.
You must complete this form for any prescription medication to be administered to your child at camp, including inhalers and epi-pens (even if self-administered)! Depending on the medication, it may require approval from our Health Care Consultant. Please return this form as soon as possible!
Campers will be expected to bring their own supplies during the 2020 camp season. Please consult our ACA Camp Supply List
Limited Scholarships are available, based on financial need. More information is available on our Scholarships page.
A $50 fee per session applies to all cancellations
• Four weeks or more before camp week begins: full refund less cancellation fee.
• Two weeks or more before camp week begins: 50% refund less cancellation fee.
• Less than two weeks before camp begins: no refund.
ACA reserves the right to cancel programs, change times or locations, and substitute instructors. If a program is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will be notified by telephone and will receive a full refund.
Email Communication Policy:
Please note that ACA will use the email address, which you provided at registration, as our primary means of communicating with you. In registering for an ACA program, you acknowledge that ACA has permission to email you with important updates, as well as information about upcoming events, programs and exhibition opportunities.
Requests to be removed from our email mailing list must be sent to
email@example.com; in your email, we ask that you also include an alternate form of contact (i.e. phone number) where an ACA staff member can reach you with any necessary updates regarding your registration.
Occasionally, ACA takes photographs for use in our catalogs and promotional materials. If you do not wish to have photographs of your children used by ACA, please notify the office before the start of the session.
Sold Out or Under-enrolled Camps:
If a camp is full at the time of your registration, you will be notified and placed on a waiting list. ACA reserves the right to cancel classes, change times or locations, and substitute instructors.
If a camp is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will be notified by telephone and will receive a full refund.
We do not pro-rate for late signups. We do not offer sibling discounts.
