Youth and Chaperone Policy

Youth and Chaperone Policy

Augusta Heritage Center is always interested in the idea of “passing it on” to our youth. However, a few basic rules apply for reasons of safety and for the benefit of all who attend Augusta workshops:

  • Students taking classes may not bring infants or children to class.
  • Parents/chaperones are responsible for their children outside of class.
  • Youth under 18 must name an adult chaperone who has agreed to be responsible for them during their week at Augusta.
  • Chaperones not registered as students must pay a non-refundable/non-transferable $150 chaperone fee (which includes access to all group sessions and evening events). Chaperones are not considered students and will remain outside classrooms.
  • If a young student is staying on-campus, the chaperone must also stay on-campus in the same dorm and pay housing and meal fees.
  • Youth under 13 years old may enroll in adult classes if pre-approved by the Augusta Heritage Center and the Instructor – an adult level of participation is expected.
  • The minimum age for Augusta for Kids is 6 (must have completed Kindergarten).
