Camp Information & Details
 Group Size/ Teacher Ratio
Each Art Exploration camp group has a maximum of 20 students. A maximum of five spaces per age group (5-6, 6-7, 8-13) will be reserved for YAA for ALL campers. Children are grouped in clusters by age/ grade: 5-6, 6- 7, 8-13 within the general population in Art Exploration Camps, utilizing an inclusion model. Each class will have the Primary Art Educator, an ESE Specialist, and YAA trained teen volunteers. The ESE specialist will be in charge of the YAA for ALL cluster of campers. All campers will engage in the same art experiences, museum exploration, special guest artists, lunch and play together. The museum will not promise pairing of campers.
 Registration/ Intake Process
A pre-screening form will be sent to all who are interested in the YAA for ALL Program. Once the pre-screening form is reviewed, parents will be notified if they are to attend an in-person family interview with both the parents and child- possible participant. This process helps to identify a group of children who will function together as a cluster within an Art Exploration Classroom and if a child’s camp experience will be fun, exciting and safe. After the Interview process if both the parents and interviewer agree that the child would enjoy YAA for ALL Camp, then Registration Forms are sent. Registration Forms and a 50% deposit must be remitted in order to save the child’s spot.
 Therapist Visits
YAA encourages therapists to visit and observe YAA for ALL campers in a social setting. Therapists are allowed to work with YAA for ALL Campers in the museum galleries and classrooms. If the therapist requires the child to leave the camp environment, parent authorization must be obtained and the therapist listed as “authorized to pick up”. At such time, the therapist must sign the child out and sign the child back into camp using the regular sign in and out procedures. Once therapist signs out the child YAA relinquishes responsibility of said child and child is under the care and supervision of the therapist, who may leave premises of the Museum, if he/she deems fit. All therapist visits must be pre-arranged and confirmed with the camp director at least 24 hours in advance. This form will serve as an on-going authorization for therapy visits. A copy of the therapist driver’s license will be kept on file.
