Lunch and snack breaks
All classes take a 15-minute supervised snack break halfway through class. Campers participating in
full-day classes take a one-hour, supervised lunch break. You may pack a bag lunch and snack for your
child or purchase healthy, nutritious lunches and snacks from the Art Center Café.

Food allergies: Please notify us at least three weeks in advance if your child has special dietary issues
that may affect or require the cooperation of the other campers.

The Minnetonka Center for the Arts will do its best to accommodate children with allergies. As a public
venue, we cannot guarantee a peanut-free facility, yet steps to control the camp program environment will
be taken as needed.

Summer Arts Camp classes use high-quality arts materials for all projects. As some pigments and
materials may stain, please dress your children in appropriate clothing. The Art Center is not responsible
for clothing that is damaged in art classes. Children will play games outdoors during snack and lunch
breaks, weather permitting. Please dress your children in appropriate clothing and footwear for outdoor
play (closed-toe athletic shoes are best). Students of welding classes must wear long sleeves and pants
in natural fibers and closed-toe shoes.

Art Project Pickup
Campers are so proud of their completed artwork! Yet some ceramics projects need firing and can’t be
taken home until later. Instructors will provide specific pickup information. Please pick up children’s
projects on time, typically three weeks after class end. We strongly recommend that you bring your child
with you to help identify their project. All unclaimed items will be recycled after September 18.
