Please plan ahead and book at least two weeks in advance.

Kohl's at SMWVMay is a peak visitation month, and classes fill up quickly.  If you plan to visit in May, it’s best to make a reservation at least eight weeks in advance, in order to reserve the dates, times and programs of your choice. Most requests are processed within eight working days.

You have a reservation only if you have received a reservation confirmation, which will be (e)mailed to you as quickly as possible.
