Drop-off & Pick-up Procedures

Those dropping off and picking up campers ages 5–7 should park in the garage and escort their campers directly to/from their camp. Campers ages 8+ should be dropped off and picked up in the circle drive in front of COCA’s main entrance (on Edward Jones Drive). Have your Car Pick-Up Form displayed on your dashboard. If dropping off or picking up multiple campers, defer to the procedure for the youngest camper.

Inclusion Services

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), COCA provides a variety of auxiliary aids and services to help campers with communication disabilities fully engage in our programs. We ask for as much advance notice as possible, so we can work with the camper’s parent or guardian to determine the best plan of action and have time to arrange for reasonable modifications or services necessary.

Do campers bring their own lunch/snacks?

There is no refrigerator or microwave available. An allergy-free table is available.

Does my camper’s age matter?

Camps are for students ages 5–10, and students should be the appropriate age for the camp in which they are participating. Below are reasons why we believe that being the appropriate age is important:

  1. The age ranges are broad already.
  2. The quality of camps remains higher if we stay true to the ages and participating campers are closer to the same age socially.

How do I transfer or withdraw my camper from camp?

Visit our Camp Registration Information page for information about transfers and withdrawals.

Is tuition assistance available?

Yes, tuition assistance is available for COCA Winter Break Arts Camps. Visit our Tuition Assistance page for more information.

What are COCA’s Health & Safety Procedures for camps?

Face masks are strongly recommended at COCA, not required. We highly recommend that all patrons wear face masks, especially those who are unvaccinated and those who remain vulnerable to COVID-19. 

We continually monitor current COVID-19 conditions in our region, and protocols are subject to change, as necessary, to address the conditions. View Health & Safety Procedures
