Classroom Antics Foundation is a 501(c)3 that provides financial aid for Classroom Antics Summer Tech Camps to families in need. Financial Aid is awarded on a case-by-case basis and application does not guarantee financial aid. Criteria include:
- Household income & number of persons living in household
- Qualification for free/reduced lunches
- Occupations of parent(s) or guardian(s)
- Special family or individual circumstances
- Acceptance request letter
Deadline for the application is April 30, 2018.
Financial Aid recipients are required to attend all five days of camp, due to Classroom Antics Foundation’s high demand. Applicants unable to meet this requirement must forfeit the program. Recipients that miss more than one day will be dismissed from the camp.
To be considered for financial aid, the parent/guardian must complete the application form to the best of their knowledge. Any false information given will immediately disqualify an applicant. Due to the nature of our assistance and our wish to grant as many families assistance as possible, the form includes questions regarding financial situation and amount of need.
Acceptance Request Letter
Along with completion of the following child and family information form, parents/guardians are required to submit an acceptance request letter for the program, detailing:
- Why an enrichment program is important to them and/or the child
- The difference a summer tech camp could make in the child’s life
Notification of Granted Financial Aid
Classroom Antics Foundation will notify you by May 15, 2018, if your child will receive a financial aid. Please do not contact us asking about the status of an application. You must accept and use the financial aid by May 31, 2018.
Important Registration Information
You are welcome to register your child for camp and then apply the financial aid to the purchased camp after receiving. However, if you register your child and do not receive financial aid, you are still responsible for the payment of the camp. Classroom Antics’ standard camp cancellation policies still apply and can be found below. Applicants can receive financial aid before registration is complete. Camps that do not fill are subject to cancellation, however, standard transfer policies still apply.
Upon acceptance of financial aid, a recipient must complete an evaluation survey following attendance of camp.
CLASSROOM ANTICS WAIVER
By indicating your acceptance, you understand and agree to the following:
I understand that the Program Fee (sometimes called Class Fee) pays for my participant’s spot in the program, not my participant’s attendance. Full payment is required for all participants at the time of registration.
REFUNDABILITY OF PROGRAM:
I understand and accept that all fees are non-refundable unless Cancellation Insurance is purchased.
CANCELLATION INSURANCE OPTION:
I understand and accept that Cancellation Insurance is an optional add-on during program registration. Cancellation Insurance allows a program registration to be canceled for any reason before the start of the program and receive a refund for 100% of the corresponding Program Fee, less any discounts. Cancellation Insurance must be purchased individually for each program registration to be protected.
NO CANCELLATION INSURANCE OPTION:
I understand and accept, should Cancellation Insurance be waived during registration, I may still withdraw from the program. However, in this scenario, I may only receive a percentage of the Program Fee as Classroom Antics gift credit, dependent upon the number of days before the program that the withdrawal occurs. Gift credit may be used on any future Classroom Antics products or services but expires 15 months from original program’s start date. If the enrolled program was a result of any previous transfers, the earliest program’s start date is used to calculate the expiration date.
Policy: ___ days before the program start date, receive ___% in Classroom Antics gift credit.
— 30+ days, 75% gift credit
— 7-29 days, 50% gift credit
— 1-6 days, 25% gift credit
— 0 days, 0% gift credit
I understand and accept that I may alter my purchase of program in any way within 24 hours of the original registration. This includes, but is not limited to, modifying, adding, or canceling and withdrawing from the program for any reason.
I understand and accept that there are no transfer fees when transferring to another Classroom Antics program with open space. Discounts will also be transferred as courtesy on any transfer. If there is a difference in price between the two programs, I understand that I must pay any cost difference between the program prices. If the new program is less expensive, a Classroom Antics gift credit (expiring 15 months from the earliest program’s start date) will be issued. If Cancellation Insurance was purchased for this program, the gift credit may be processed as a refund instead. Cancellation Insurance will automatically be transferred to the new program registration, however, Cancellation Insurance may not be added if it wasn’t on the original registration.
ABSENCE DUE TO ILLNESS:
I understand and accept that in the event of the participant becoming ill during the program, I may receive a prorated gift credit of the Program Fee. To receive this credit, I understand that I must provide a doctor’s note to Classroom Antics. The gift credit expires 15 months from the start date of the original program. The prorated amount is calculated from the date the doctor’s note is received by Classroom Antics.
I understand and accept that participants who fail to show for their program and provide no prior notice of cancellation are liable for the entire fee.
MAKE-UP DAYS AND TIMES:
I understand and accept that in the event a classroom or instructor becomes unavailable (for example, snow day or instructor ill), Classroom Antics will notify participants immediately and reschedule the missed day. In the event that a missed day cannot be rescheduled, a prorated refund will be issued.
I do hereby release Classroom Antics, the facility owners and operators, the program coordinators, and any and all associated employees from any liability in the event of accident or injury. I agree to have my child given emergency treatment by a physician or hospital in the event that I cannot be reached and agree to release all personnel for any liability in connection with this activity. I do grant permission to transport my child in case of an emergency. I understand that I will be contacted as soon as possible, in the rare case that an emergency situation arises. I assume financial responsibility for all expenses of such care.
IMAGES AND VIDEO:
I authorize any images and video captured during this event may be used to create promotional material and publications. Any rights of compensation or ownership to these images are waived by the students, their parents and/or guardians.
I understand and accept that Classroom Antics requires a minimum number of participants to hold a class. In the rare event of insufficient enrollment, a full refund will be processed, and no cancellation fees will be imposed.
I understand and accept English is the primary language in class. Instructors will instruct participants in English.
I understand and accept that Classroom Antics must be able to conduct programs in a respectful environment. Participants may sometimes become excited, and that is completely normal. However, should a participant become so disruptive that other participants or instructors can no longer participate in the program effectively, Classroom Antics will invoke a 5-strike system: 1) verbal warning, 2) verbal warning, 3) private verbal warning and phone call to parent or guardian, 4) written warning to parent, and 5) dismissal from the program without refund of any fees (including any future registered programs by the offending participant).
