  • Once payment is received you will receive a confirmation email notifying you of your child’s acceptance.

3. How do I drop off payment? Can we pay with a credit card or on the web?

We would prefer if parents/ guardians write a check out and either mail or drop off the payment to our CYC Main office or send it to us directly within 5 days of the application being received.

If sending payment in the mail, write attention to:

Our capacity is 150 students. We will be sharing space this summer and hope to accommodate as many students as we can.

Returning families receive our email notifications right before we post the updates online. We have always made this process first come first serve to make it fair for the community. However, we will be offering a limited number of priority slots to Dianne Feinstein Elementary students for a limited time because they are our host site.

7. Cost of the program? Can we sign up for one week at a time?

Program Cost: $300 for the entire 6 weeks of the program. Our curriculum is designed to run for the entire 6-week cycle and we encourage families to keep students in the program for most of the duration of the time. We only do a 1x payment. Your payment for the program will complete your application process.
