No seats in the camp you are interested in? Place your child on the Summer Camps waiting list. The waiting list option will appear in lieu of the add to cart option when a class is at capacity.
If a student has any physical, emotional, or educational special needs that would require special accommodations by camp staff, it is the responsibility of the legal guardian to disclose that information at the time of enrollment in order for camp staff to be aware. Please note that TTC does not guarantee all special accommodations will be met, but will do all that is possible to provide reasonable accommodations to campers.
A 15-minute break is scheduled every day, morning and afternoon. Campers are asked to bring a snack and drink except for those attending the culinary and pastry camps. Campers attending for the day should bring a lunch and two snacks. Microwave/refrigeration access is not available.
Parents must escort their children to and from the classroom and sign them in and out each day.
Please drop off your child at the site of his/her first camp. Campers should arrive on campus no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the start of the camp. Campers arriving earlier will not be supervised, and parents must accept full responsibility for their behavior and safety.
