Refunds are allowed up to seven business days prior to the first day of class; a $10 service fee per class will be applied to each refund. Cancellation requests received after the refund period but prior to the first day of class will receive a credit, minus the $10 service fee, valid for one year. No refunds or credits will be offered once classes begin. If you must drop a class due to serious illness or injury, please call: (925) 943-5899, ext 2438 or email (Doctor’s note is required. $10 service fee applies.) We do not give refunds for weather or lack of student participation. Transfers between classes may only be done if there is room and transfer is approved by the manager on duty.



CAMP COMMUNITY ARTS: There is a $30 cancellation fee up to Friday by 4:00 pm prior to start of camp. For cancellations that take place after this, there is a $50 cancellation fee. Refunds will be pro-rated from time of withdrawal in addition to the $50 cancellation fee up to the first week of camp. Unfortunately, we cannot refund camp fees after the first week of camp. Failure to attend camp or no-shows will not be granted a full or partial refund or credit.

ALL OTHER CAMPS: Requests submitted at least seven days prior to the start of a session will receive a full refund minus a $10 withdrawal fee per session.  Requests made less than seven days prior to the start of the session will receive a credit good for one year minus the $10 withdrawal fee. No refunds or credits will be issued after the start of a Summer Camp session.



A withdrawal fee of $75 will be charged for withdrawal after registering. Tuition will be pro-rated based on the number of preschool days for which the student is registered. Please notify the registrar at least two weeks before the student's last day of attendance.



Cancellations will be handled as follows:

• 90 days or more prior to use date - forfeit Security Deposit.

• Less than 90 days prior to date of use - forfeit all rental fees paid.

A request to reschedule a date will be treated as a cancellation. 

Occasionally, it may be necessary to re-schedule, relocate or deny a request previously approved. In  this event, the group or individual will be given as much advance notice as possible.



NO REFUNDS for no shows or for cancelations less than thirty (30) calendar days in advance of your use date.

$25 service fee for cancelations or changes made more than thirty (30) days prior to event date. Refunds of any remaining balance may take up to three weeks to process.
