Supervised Lunch

Students who sign up for both a morning and an afternoon camp session may register for Supervised Lunch. This includes supervision and activities in our enclosed courtyard between 12:30 PM and 1:30 PM. Students must bring their own bagged lunch. If a student is enrolled in both morning and afternoon camp sessions, and will not be picked up between camps, they must be registered for Supervised Lunch.

Summer Art Camp is a NUT FREE CAMP.

After Care

Students enrolled in an afternoon camp may also enroll in After-Care from 4:30 to 5:30 PM. We recommend that students bring a snack. Students will enjoy games and activities in our courtyard until 5:00pm. Pick-up after 5:00pm will be through the 25th street side entrance to our building. Please ring the doorbell if the door is locked, and we will check out students from the Studio Art Department office just inside the door.  Students must be picked up by 5:30 PM.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up

A parent or guardian must walk their student into the Richmond Art Center building to sign them in and out for camp. Please read the full Summer Camp Policies (link above) for details.

Morning camp drop-off: 9:00-9:30 AM (building will not be open before 9:00 AM).
Morning camp pick-up: 12:30 – 12:45 PM.
Afternoon camp drop-off: 1:15-1:30 PM
Afternoon camp regular pick-up: 4:30-4:45 PM
After-Care pick-up: no later than 5:30 PM

Late Pick-Up Fees

It is important that you pick up your child on time from RAC summer art camps, and we provide a 15-minute window for pick-up and drop-off because we know getting around the bay area can be difficult at times. Please aim to be at the RAC at the beginning of the pick-up time. The RAC will charge a $10 late pick-up fee for any day that a child is picked up later than 5 minutes after the pick-up time from their camp. If a parent/guardian is late picking up their child three times, the child may be dropped from the program at RAC’s discretion.

If a child is enrolled in after-car, and is not picked up by 5:35 PM, a $25 late fee will be charged. If a child is left at the Richmond Art Center after 6:00 PM, the police will be notified and your child will be removed from camp.

AGE RANGES

Classes for ages 5-16 are designed to fill the skill set for a specific age range. Class age ranges are based on this, and not on a child’s artistic ability. No exceptions are made.

SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS

For children or teens with disabilities, learning differences or special medical needs, please contact the Studio Art Director at 510.620.6773 prior to registering your child to ensure that we can provide the best support.
