A week of magical unicorn art. From paintings to slime and ceramics — there is something fun each day. For all the parents about to ask "Will there be boy options?" the answer is YES! We have alternate projects each day, but we often find that boys love mystical animals too. Slime will be made and sent home in special jars and campers will be experimenting with chalk art too!

We do not offer refunds on summer camp.
Summer camp purchases, MUST be used by the end of the summer.  Classes cannot be used towards anything other than what they are purchased for. Example, you cannot apply summer camps towards art lessons or gifts. One of our main reasons for not offering refunds is: We are a small business! We are an art business. Art supplies are ordered in advance for every student. We train and staff our camps, and invest a lot of money into being licensed, having a Dr on call should we need one and making sure every child has the best possible camp experience. Thank you for your understanding.

 

 PLEASE NOTE: The Giggling Pig does NOT ISSUE REFUNDS for any of our classes. 
 

ALL classes must be used within 12 months from the purchase date. Given 24 hours notice, we will add a credit to your account with us and can be applied towards a future class. Summer camp purchases, MUST be used by the end of the summer. Classes may only be used towards what they are purchased for. (ex. unused art lessons can not be applied towards the gift shop or summer camps.) Read more about our policies.
