​2018 Camp Registration is OPEN!

Session Dates

Session 1: June 24 - July 9

Session 2: July 15 - July 30


The Early Bird tuition is $3,350 per session if registered by February 15th. After that date, tuition is $3,700. Tuition includes studio materials, dorm accommodations, meals, transportation to/from local airports, and a field trip. 

Space is reserved upon completion of the online registration and payment of a $350 non-refundable deposit. The remaining balance, due by May 1, 2018, will be automatically deducted from the account on file. Tuition for registration made after May 1st is due in full at the time of registration. Registrations will be processed in the order they are received.

Waiting List

After a session fills, registrants may reserve a space on the waiting list. If your registration and deposit is received after a session is full, you will be notified and given the opportunity to be placed on a wait list. If openings occur, wait listed students will be taken in the order their wait list registration was received.


If a camper withdraws by May 15, 2018, all tuition minus the $350 non-refundable deposit will be refunded upon written request. After May 15, 2018, no refunds are given for early withdrawal, student cancellations, or no-shows, regardless of reason and date of registration.

No refunds are granted for early withdrawal, absences or behavioral dismissals. Oxbow will not apply non-refundable payments to a future summer program. In the event that a session is cancelled by Oxbow for whatever reason, all fees will be refunded.

There are no exceptions to this policy.
