Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy Austin is proud to announce our summer camps for 2020! Please click on the banner below for the camp you are signing your camper up for. Do note that the consent form must be printed and either mailed or brought in person to our store to complete your application. Most of our camps are recommended for ages 10+ but some may be lower ages for some camps, please make sure to check the details on each camp. Each camp is also meant for children under 18.
My name is Michael Hong, Event Manager here at Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy Austin. We would like to address any concerns about our camps for this summer at this time.
First Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy Austin will run our summer camps either in store, if we are safely able to do so while adhering to the guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and the City of Austin. If we are unable to run our summer camps in store safely, we will be moving them to a virtual format, with our counselors running the camps in an online format. We will arrange and work with each camper’s family to get the materials planned for them either by mail, curbside pickup or in-store pickup to ensure they have all the materials they would need to participate. This process will be done on an individual camp basis as each camp will require different materials.
For families that are signed up for our summer camps, we will be sending emails notifying them of the plans for their camp and any changes to their camps this year, so please keep an eye out for those e-mails.
Secondly, we are following disinfecting precautions, as recommended by the CDC during this time, as well as limiting the number of guests we have in our store at a time. We have also closed all our gaming space in order to continue the social distancing guidelines put out by the CDC.
We thank you for your time and patience,
Michael Hong, Event Manager

LATE PICKUP: There will be a 15 minute grace period for pickup. For each 15 minutes tardy for pickup, a $5 late pick up fee will be charged.
In the case of an accident or other emergency, the late fee may be waived at management’s discretion.
Snacks: Our summer camps do not offer lunches for campers. We do request that your camper eat lunch before they come to the camp as they start at Noon.
We will offer a bagged snack (such as popcorn / potato chips / chex mix) and a drink package (such as sparkling water or juice pouch) during the camp for a snack break. We do have water fountains in the store as well as a selection of purchasable snacks and drinks at the store that campers will be allowed to purchase with money from home. You may also send your child to camp with additional snacks from home. If your child has dietary or allergy restrictions that we should know about, please provide explicit written instructions on your child’s waiver.
If your child has an allergy or travels with an EpiPen, you must alert staff at drop-off and provide explicit written instruction on your child’s waiver.
NOTE: For campers who have special needs, parents need to be aware that our camp counselors are not trained to handle all special needs. If you feel your child may need additional supervision, guardians are welcome to stay in our shop for the durations of the camps. We do offer free Wi-Fi and plenty of reading material (we ARE a comic shop afterall) for those wishing to stay. In the case that a guardian is unavailable we will reach out to the immediate contacts listed on our emergency form and check-out form.
ALL CAMPERS ARE HELD TO OUR STORE CODE OF CONDUCT. REPEATED VIOLATIONS OF THE CODE OF CONDUCT WILL LEAD TO EXPULSION FROM THE CAMP AND FORFEITURE OF ANY PROMISED MATERIALS. Our code of conduct is located on our website @ https://dlair.net/austin/store-info/store-policies/
RESCHEDULING / CREDIT / REFUND POLICY:
