Carpool Drop Off: Once on our driveway, proceed several hundred feet, then turn right to come through the open double gates and down the gravel drive into the "Parking Pasture". (Please DO NOT park by the garage of the private residence.) As you enter the "Parking Pasture" please stay to the right going down hill. To exit, make a U-turn and exit coming up the hill to the right near the large pine tree. Please note we have a narrow driveway; if possible, please wait for all campers to arrive before leaving. Cars exiting should yield to cars trying to enter off the road.You may parallel park, single file, along the fence on either side, although if you park on the side with the pine tree, you should be facing up hill. Please do not block any gates or other cars!
First Day: Once parked, you and your camper may enter through the large gate that faces to the barn on the gravel driveway, and walk with your child to join the other campers in the barn area. Please close all gates behind you. After the first day, staff will come to the parking pasture to greet your camper.
Rainy Day Carpool: In the event of a thunderstorm, we may hold camp in the main residence. Please follow the regular car pool procedures noted, above. Wait in your car with/for your camper and our staff will bring an umbrella to each car to get/deliver campers.
To inform us on matters that apply to the next day or later in the week, please email the director at email@example.com. We check emails every evening until 8 PM, and will respond that evening.
To inform us timely matters that we need to know before camp ends that day, text the director at 770.337.4785.
If your camper says things are not going as he/she expected or there is an area of concern, please inform us immediately via text and email, and set up a time to talk with us on the phone in the evening.
Summer Camp and LIT Payment: $100 non-refundable deposit is due per camper per session at the time of online registration. The remaining tuition may be paid either in full at the time of registration; or as an automatic draft from your credit card, in one installment on April 15, or two installments on March 15 and April 15. We accept Visa and MasterCard cards or checks. Canceled checks will receive a $35 fee. Registration made after April 1 will need to pay in full at time of registration.
Spring Break Payment: Payment is due in full prior to the start of the session. Cancelations made prior to March 1 for Spring Break Camp will receive a refund, less the $100 deposit. There are no refunds after March 1 for Spring Break Camp.
Cancelations made prior to May 1 will receive a refund of tuition paid, less the $100 deposit per camper per session. Please submit requests to us via email. We are not able to give refunds after May 1 on summer camp registration or lessons.
Transfer of Sessions: Campers may transfer to another session, space available, at no additional charge. Please submit requests via email at least 7 days before the start of the session.
Camper Illness: If a camper misses 2 or more days during a session due to illness, those days may be made up during another session, space available.
We ask that campers not bring food or snacks to camp containing ingredients from peanuts. If staff observes peanut products, they will be sent home with campers. While we discourage the bringing of peanut products, we do not have a formal means of enforcing this policy.
Campers are expected to follow camp rules and treat other campers, staff, animals and property with respect; bullying and other disrespectful behavior is not tolerated. Discipline procedures will follow a progression: first a verbal correction from staff, then a 5 minute time out from activities, and if the misbehavior continues, being removed from the activity, sent to the director and notification of parents. Magnolia Farm reserves the right, at its discretion, to dismiss any Participant who violates Magnolia Farm rules or whose conduct is determined by Magnolia Farm to be detrimental to him or herself, other Participants, or the general welfare of the Farm. No refund will be made in case of dismissal.
While we would like to welcome all campers, our program may not be suitable for campers with special needs. Our days combine structured activities with unstructured time to allow children to have creative play. The daily schedule may vary, as some activities are offered on a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday rotation. As we are offering camp, and not school, the environment will by nature be louder than a classroom. Please contact us to discuss if our program would be suitable for your child.
