What are my registration options?
For Sum'Arts for Kids 2022, families can choose between week-long camps, single-day classes, an outdoor fishing adventure, and take-home kits. Registration will take place through the Kodiak Arts Council website and our ticketing system. If you need assistance with registration please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text 907-942-5840.
How do I know if my registration is complete?
Families will receive a confirmation email from our Sawyer registration system once their registration is complete. If you do not receive a confirmation email please check your junk or spam folders for an email from "Kodiak Arts Council" with the address "hisawyer.com". If you do not have an email, your registration likely did not complete. Please call or text 907-942-5840 or email at email@example.com for assistance.
Is there financial aid available to families?
Yes! The KIBSD Federal Programs office supports participation in our Sum'Arts camps, classes and kits for families that qualify for the Migrant Education program. All Migrant Education families are eligible and encouraged to use this form to register through the Federal Programs office.
A no-cost participation option is also available to families for whom the tuition fee is a challenge. Families are welcome and encouraged to use the promo code ARTIST in the registration process to register their students for Sum'Arts camps and classes for free. Please call or text the Arts Council at 907-942-5840 if we can assist with registration and use of the promo code.
Can Adults take the classes?
Sum’Arts for Kids is a youth arts education program. However, parents and guardians are welcome to create alongside their students at home with our take-home kits options: Marine Mosaics, and Painted Marine Cut-Outs.
Families are welcome to accompany their students to the one-day, in-person Marine Mosaics classes, and parent or guardian supervision is required for registered students under age 8 for this class.
IN-PERSON INDOOR CAMPS AND CLASSES
What should my student bring to their indoor in-person camp?
All supplies are included in all Sum'Arts camps, and we will continue to purchase enough supplies to reduce the need for sharing supplies in camps. For our indoor, in-person camps, please send your students in comfortable clothes and with a water bottle.
What are your COVID-19 mitigation protocols?
All of our in-person indoor camps and classes are taking place within KIBSD classrooms and we will follow the COVID-19 mitigation protocols established by the district for use of their facilities. As of May 2022 this includes the use of Medify air purifiers in classrooms, sanitizing shared surfaces, frequent hand-washing, and following quarantine guidelines after a positive case. Mask-wearing is optional. The most recent guidelines on coming to school facilities after a positive case or exposure can be found here.
To support social distancing we have limited the number of student participants in each camp to 12 for camps taking place in classrooms, and 20 for camps taking place in the Kodiak Middle School commons (Kodiak Youth Theatre and Marine Mosaics).
OUTDOOR CAMPS AND CLASSES
What should my student bring to their outdoor camp?
For our outdoor camps - Fish N' Print - please send your student in weather appropriate clothes. We recommend layers for warmth and a rain jacket in case of rain. If your student has a favorite life jacket they are welcome to bring it. Life jackets will also be available aboard the Moonlight.
Will my students need a fishing license for Fish N' Print?
Alaska residents under age 18 and nonresidents under age 16 do not need a sport fishing license. However, all students will need to complete and keep a Sport Fishing Harvest Record to record their catch. We will also have these forms available to be completed aboard the Moonlight on the day of class.
Where can I learn more about Kodiak Marine Charters?
Kodiak Marine Charters is a family run and operated business in Kodiak. The Moonlight is a 43' Delta Coast Guard Inspected vessel with a capacity for 18 passengers and 2 crew. For Fish N Print we will be limiting the number of participants to 10 students maximum per trip. You can learn more about Kodiak Marine Charters and meet the Captain and crew here.
