Homeschool Series Policies

Our homeschool programs are only for students ages 6-12. Older and younger siblings may not accompany the program, however they, along with their parents/caregivers, will be welcome to explore the property during the session at no extra charge. We will request a few parents accompany their children through the program, so if you would like to chaperone, you are welcome to do so (again, unfortunately we can only offer this opportunity to solo adults).  
We will be dividing the students into similarly aged groups. Group swapping will not be possible on the day of the program. We understand that children like to be with their friends and we will do our best to fulfill requests made more than 4 business days in advance of the program. 
Programs include both indoor and outdoor elements, and will proceed rain or shine, so dress for the weather!  
Following the guidance of Anne Arundel County Public Schools, masks will be optional for students.  Students and chaperones must be respectful of the other students in their groups and must refrain from commenting on another student’s mask-wearing or lack thereof. Bullying of any kind will not be tolerated.

Given the ever-shifting nature of the pandemic, we may unfortunately need to cancel the program at any time. We will immediately contact you via the email address you provide if we need to cancel, and we will refund your program costs. If anyone in your family is feeling unwell, we ask that you do not attend the program, and we will give you a full refund. If you choose to not attend for another reason, we will provide a full refund until one week prior to the program, after which we are unable to offer refunds (unless the prior conditions are met).
