How to pay your balance
If you elected to pay only the deposit when you signed up for camp, your credit card will be charged for the remaining balance the 1st of the month of your session start date. For example: Registered for a session that starts July 14 – your credit card will be charged the remaining balance July 1st. You can also pay earlier by logging into your account and scheduling a payment or by giving or mailing us a check — either way, the balance for camp is due 1 week before the first day of the camp session.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where and when does camp happen? Camp runs for 9 weeks during the summer, from 9 am to 3 pm, with early and late care options beginning at 8 am and ending at 5:30 pm. Camp serves kids ages 7 to 13 (older kids are also welcome) and is hosted at the Parts and Crafts headquarters at 577 Somerville Avenue, in Somerville, MA. We run Monday through Friday from June 30 to August 30, excepting the 4th of July when we are off.
Can I come for just a week of a two week session? Many people have inquired as to whether they can sign up for one week only. The answer is, yes. Each week there will up to 10 slots that are available on a first-come first-serve basis, with one important caveat: If this is your child’s first time at camp, they MUST sign up for first week of any particular session before second-week slots will be open to them so that we can go over tool rules and guidelines and generally get them acquainted in the space.
Can I come for a few days of a week? Generally not. Our staffing logistics require hiring staff for a week or a session at a time, and so we are not equipped to deal with different amounts of kids in the space on different days.
