Drop-Off Time

Drop-off begins at 7:45 AM.  That is the earliest time that the OPAC will be open.  If you arrive before 7:45 AM, please wait in your vehicle.

Pick-Up Time

Pick-up begins at 12:15 PM and ends at 12:30 PM.  A fee of $10 will be assessed for each 30-minute period that a camper is picked up after 12:45 PM. 

Can I attend the camp with my student?

We want each camper to be immersed in the experiences and lessons throughout the week.  To that end, parents & guardians are not permitted to attend camp sessions.  Parents, friends, and family members are invited to attend the free performances on Saturday. 

Can my student attend both weeks of camp?

Please note that while the shows have different songs and different scripts, both weeks of camp share very similar activities, games, and crafts.  

What is included with the tuition?

Camp T-shirt, Performance admission, interactive workshops and a special award. 

What is the cancellation policy?

A refund (less a $10 registration fee) is available with a 30 day notice prior to the start of the camp session.  Unfortunately refunds are not available within 30 days of the camp.

May students register for just one or two days of the camp?

Due to the performance-based nature of the camp, students are required to participate the entire week.

What is the check-out procedure after the final performance on Saturday?

All campers will need to change out of their costumes and turn in each costume piece to the show director.  Because of the large number of campers and costume pieces, it will take approximately 20 to 40 minutes once the show has ended before you may sign your child out.
