It is 1:5 to the youngest group.  For older age group ( 9 - 12 years old), ratio can go to 1:7 .

What happen if it's raining on the field trip day?

We will try our best to make alternate arrangements to the outdoor field trip. If possible we will change to an indoor destination.

What happen if my child misses a day at the camp? Or need to withdraw from the camp, what is the return policy?

There is no refund to our classes or camp, but credits equal to the amount paid will be given to you which can use towards any of our classes/ camps/ workshops. Your credits will never expire!
