Policies and Waivers

As part of the application process, parent or guardians will be asked to agree and sign a Waivers and Policies form:

Cancellation and Refund Policy – If parents/guardians need to cancel, a full tuition refund, minus a $30 administration fee, can be made if parents/guardians notify Grace Art Camp by June 1, 2018. We are sorry we cannot make refunds after June 1; there are no refunds for individual days not attended.

General Waiver – Should any injuries occur during or as a result of participation in a Grace Art Camp activity, parents/guardians agree to indemnify and hold harmless Grace Institute, Grace Memorial Episcopal Church, the Diocese of Oregon and all their employees and volunteers.

Emergency Medical Authorization – Parents/guardians give Grace Art Camp permission to seek medical attention, including medical or surgical treatment, for a child in case of an accident or emergency. Parents/guardians agree to provide a reachable contact number, and understand that every effort will be made by Grace Art Camp staff to contact them and/or the emergency contact person in the event of an emergency. Authorization for each child is valid only for the assigned and attended week of Camp.

Pick up Authorization – Parents/guardians authorize the designated pick up person (at least 18-years old) to pick up or deliver their child(ren) to Grace Art Camp. Parents/guardians understand that if they, or the person named, are unable to pick up the child, they will provide written permission to authorize another adult to pick up their child. Under no circumstances may campers leave camp without an authorized adult; campers may not walk or bike home without an authorized adult.

Camp Hours – 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, M – F.  Children not picked up by 3:15 will be taken to Extended Hours and charged accordingly ($ 10.00/hr).

Illness – All campers should enjoy camp, so it is important to keep children home when ill. If a child becomes ill at Grace Art Camp, parents/guardians understand that Grace Art Camp Staff will call the parent/guardian listed and then the designated emergency contact if a parent cannot be reached. Children who develop a fever, throw up, or present other serious symptoms must go home.

Behavior – I understand that Grace Art Camp Staff will call the parent/guardian listed and, if unreachable, the designated emergency contact, if my child engages in seriously disruptive behavior.  Any child who kicks, scratches, bites, hits, bullies, or uses abusive or profane language will be removed from camp activities and may be sent home.  Return to camp will be contingent upon a conference with parents and child.

Photographs – Children and their art may be photographed during camp by Grace Art Camp photographers.  Photos may be used for purposes such the GI website, brochures, grant applications, or similar Grace Institute /Grace Art Camp promotional materials.  (Please note that due to the nature of social media, we are not able to control images or videos taken by parents.)
