  1. Hello, I am interested in signing up for music and arts camp for my 7 year old son for this summer. ( he has a bunch of buddies who did this camp last year and loved it!)
    We would like to sign up for June 28- July 7.
    I realize the session starts on June 26 (we will be in Peru with family for a special event until June 27).
    Any suggestions about missing those first 2 days of the session?
    How do we register?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi there.
      It is fine for him to miss a couple of days. Since I hold only a certain amount of spots open, I will need him to be signed up for the whole week.
