Places are limited: Places are limited (approx 8-10 people per project) and students will be grouped by age/ability. When it comes to offering places we will process enquiries in the order they are received. This is designed as a four-day course and first dibs will go to bookings for the entire four days.

If we are unable to fill all the places for the four-day course, we may be able to offer single days at $125 each. Let us know if you only want a single day and we’ll add you to a waiting list.

Payment: Payment for our holiday programme is by credit card only (via PayPal) and is required to be made before activities begin.
