Summer Camps start June 10 but register by April 14 to get a 10% discount
Ohlook tries to provide camps and production classes that will help our students to grow - not only as performers but as individuals. Increasing confidence and self-esteem in our students is priority number one.
We create a safe environment where students are never afraid to explore, fail, and succeed!
SUMMER CAMP PAYMENTS & POLICIES
Refunds: All refunds will be charged a $25.00 processing fee. A full refund, minus the processing fee, will be given until 7 days before the camp begins. There are no refunds once the camp has started.
There must be 5 students registered for the class the Thursday before the camp is to commence or it will be canceled. If a class or camp is canceled by Ohlook the student will receive a full refund.
Payment: We accept Master Card, Visa, American Express, Discover, Check, and Cash. There is a $30.00 fee for returned checks.
Payment for summer camps are due the first day of camp. Payments not received by the 2nd day will incur a $15 fee. If payment is not received by the 3rd day, the student will not be allowed to continue in camp.
Discounts: If a student takes 2 camps or more in the summer, the 2nd camp and each subsequent class is eligible for a 10% discount.
Absences: If a student misses more than 2 days of camp, the student’s eligibility to participate in the final performance is at the instructor’s discretion. In extreme cases the instructor may choose to drop the student from the camp. Students who are dropped from camp due to excessive absences may be offered a partial refund in extenuating circumstances such as moving away from the area. Refund decisions will be made by the Ohlook Executive Board on a case-by-case basis.
Disciplinary Action: In the rare case that a student’s behavior becomes disruptive enough that in impedes the progress of the class as a whole, the teacher may elect to limit the student’s participation or even remove him/her from the class. If a student is removed because of disciplinary problems, no refund will be granted.
PRODUCTION CLASS PAYMENT AND POLICIES
Payment: For students (high school and younger) $100 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of audition and can be made by check, cash or credit card. If the deposit is not paid by the last day of auditions, the performer will not be cast in the show. After casting has come out there are absolutely no refunds. Tuition balances are due by the first day of scheduled show rehearsal. After the first rehearsal, tuition will be considered late and subject to a $15 late fee. If full tuition has not been received by the third rehearsal (unless other arrangements have been made), the performer will be replaced in the production.
Scheduling Conflicts: Conflicts for practices and shows must be provided by the performer at the time of audition. We will do our best to accommodate known conflicts, but if there are too many conflicts, the performer may want to look at their schedule and decide whether or not the show is a commitment they can make. After the schedule is made, conflicts that arise must be approved because changes made to accommodate a performer after the schedule is set, affects the director, cast members, performing musicians, volunteers, and parents. Behavior: Ohlook is not responsible for children left unattended before or after practice. Performers are expected to arrive on time and be ready to rehearse. Chronic lateness or missed practices may lead to the performer losing their part. Rehearsals are for learning and practicing and performers should refrain from unnecessary distractions and pay attention. Rehearsals are closed – please no friends at rehearsal. Performers are expected to be polite and respectful to all involved. Ohlook reserves the right to ask anyone to leave if they are not acting in the best interest of the theatre, the students, teachers or staff. Property: Costumes, props, concession items, etc., are all the property of Ohlook. Performers are not to remove costumes or props from the premises or help themselves to concession items. When concession items are being sold, students must pay for the items. Tabs or “IOUs” are not accepted.
