Full refund: Camp fees (less nonrefundable registration fee of $50 per camp) are fully refundable (minus $50 registration fee) when written notification is received at least eight weeks before the first day of camp. A camper is also eligible for a full refund (less registration fee) if he/she is unable to attend camp due to medical reasons. A note from the physician must accompany the written request.

The West Windsor Arts Council strives to make the arts accessible for all people with different abilities and needs. WWAC is fully committed to ensuring that accessibility guidelines and requirements as set forth by the federal government and state of New Jersey are implemented. WWAC encourages families to discuss with us their needs so we can make a plan to accommodate them. Upon request, and with 2 weeks notice, specific accommodations will be made subject to our available resources. Even if your child has not been formally diagnosed, please let us know how we can best help him/her feel comfortable and be successful at our camp.
