    Extended-Day Option
    All of the above sessions run from 9:00 to 12:30 with an 8:30-1:00 early/late dropoff/pickup option. For all elementary, middle, and teen sessions, there will be an extended day Creative Arts option until 4:00 . Students will eat lunch (brought from home) from 12:30- 1:00 and resume summer programming at 1:00. The Creative Arts afternoons will be less movement-oriented than the morning session and will focus primarily on two-dimensional art and sculpture, as well as fun, one-hour electives. Possible elective topics include Installation Art, Magic, and Belly Dancing.

    The BCCA Summer Arts Program will not offer an extended day option for the 4-6 year-olds program. We are happy to network you with other BCCA parents if you need help arranging afternoon care for your child. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we hope to be able to offer this option to all students in the future.

    Program fees
    The BCCA is a non-profit organization and we charge only the amount to cover the costs of the program. Each two-week, morning session costs $385 per student. The session fee for the extended day option with twice the fun is only $700. The extended-day option will also require students to purchase art supplies for their Creative Arts session, not to exceed $30.

    To help accomodate the needs of working parents, the program will offer a $50 per session fee if you would like an early/late dropoff/pickup option. This option would extend the morning program hours to 8:30- 1:00. For those students in the extended day program, late pickup would run until 4:30.

    Other Summer Programming
    We hope that the above sessions fill up quickly because we've got more great ideas. Please help us spread the word about the Summer Arts Program, and we'll be happy to add new sessions as demand increases! You can simply forward this newsletter to other parents who might be interested using the Forward email link at the bottom of this page .

    I'd also like to mention another kids program that will be housed at the BCCA this summer. Summer Tunes , a "jam-filled music adventure for kids," will be offered July 19th - 30th and August 16th - 27th for elementary and middle school students. Contact "Middle C Music" for more information at 617-594-4676.

    Space for these sessions is limited so pre-register your student today! Click here to open and print the registration form. You can also pick up a registration form at the BCCA. Mail or bring in your completed form, including your $100 program deposit fee. This fee is required to register and guarantees a placement for your child. Pre-registration ends May 1st when the total program fee is due.

    I am happy to answer any questions about the program or the registration process. Please don't hesitate to call or e-mail me at the contact info below. Thanks!
