Enrollment is limited in all camps. Registration is based on a first-come, first-serve basis. We cannot hold a space ‘open’ for any child.

All registration and medical forms MUST be completed at least two weeks prior to the session’s start date. Students will not be considered enrolled in camp and may not attend until all medical and registration forms have been received. If a child does not have a completed medical form two weeks before camp, MMA reserves the right to drop the child from the program and you will NOT BE ISSUED a refund.

Prior to May 1, transferring your Discovery or NLP session to other dates will be permitted for a fee of $75, per session.   After May 1, the above will apply only if (1)the request is made at least 4 weeks prior to the start of your original session and (2) if the original session is full at the time the transfer is requested, we are able to fill that space from the wait list.  If these criteria are not met, you will be subject to the cancellation policy for the original session.
