The registration/payment deadline for each class is the Friday prior to that class. After that date, there will be a $5 late fee per registrant if there is space. Parents may accompany their child in the workshop or explore the IMAG, but must be onsite. If the IMAG cancels a class, participants will receive a full refund. If a participant cancels a registration, they will receive a full refund if it is 30 days prior and 50% if it is at least 7 days prior. Any cancellations less than 7 days before a class will not receive a refund or credit towards another class.
