FAQs

Q:

Why are the age ranges for each workshop different?

A:

Our age ranges are designed to accommodate each child’s developmental level, and best nurture the relationships formed within each group of children. For the majority of our camps, children are elementary school aged.

Q:

My schedule is tricky. Is there childcare available before and after a workshop?

A:

Yes! We offer before care from 7:45-9:00, and aftercare from 4:00-5:30pm. You may sign up for either, or both, when you register for a workshop.

Q:

Do I need to send a snack for my child?

A:

Each workshop includes a snack midway through the day. Philbrook provides goldfish or pretzels for snack. However, caregivers are welcome to send their child with a different snack.

Q:

Should I provide a lunch for my child?

A:

Since our workshops last all day, each child should make sure that they bring their lunch. Lunches should be stable at room temperature, and not require any heating or refrigeration. Also, please note that all Philbrook camps and workshops are peanut-free.

Q:

Someone besides my child’s immediate caregiver will be picking up my child. Is there anything I need to do?

A:

Please include their names and relation in the online registration form. If you would like to add names to your designated pick-up list, please email Evan Johnson at ejohnson@philbrook.org.

Q:

My child needs to take medicine during the day. How does that work?

A:

Please bring any medication in a plastic bag, labeled with a name. All medication will be stored in a locked safe. Please note, we do not have a nurse on site to administer medication.

Ebony Iman Dallas

“I am a storyteller, a painter, educator, and founder of Afrikanation Artists Organization. Inspired by travel and individual tales of resilience — I paint to encourage hope in others while amplifying voices through representation. My paintings often feature characters adorned with intricate, colorful wings reminiscent of a butterfly. These wings represent internal beauty radiating out for the world to see and challenge ideas of what it means to be beautiful, strong, and resilient. Combining rich, fiery hues with whimsical forms is how I bring the energy and spirit of my subjects to life. With a focus on authenticity and progress, my work takes form organically with each line determining the shape and direction of the next. This process has brought forth results that were unexpected and true on a subconscious, spiritual level.”
