Latest Update On Summer Camp 2020

Dear families, WE ARE OPEN FOR CAMP! However, we understand that you may not feel comfortable bringing your child(ren) to camp. If you are already enrolled but you would rather not attend camp, we are asking you to please consider using your credit for semester classes or next year’s camp. Not only will that help us remain open (as we are now facing huge expenses with barely any revenue) but it will spare you the 30% loss from cancellation. Feel free to contact us with any questions and concerns. We appreciate your support in these difficult times!

FAQ SUMMER CAMP 2020

We held a Zoom Q&A session with parents regarding Summer Camp 2020. Here is what parents asked and what we answered.

WHAT ARE THE EXTRA MEASURES WE ARE TAKING DURING SUMMER OF 2020?

– All staff will be required to wear masks.

– We will be checking temperature upon entry of every person (children + adults) that enter the studio.

– All parents entering the studio will be required to wear masks.

– Children must have a mask. While we cannot expect from young children to wear masks all day, we do our best to distance the kids and ask them to wear their masks for activities that requires them to be in close proximity to each other.

– The studio will continue to be disinfected and cleaned regularly. We always disinfect several times a day and we’ll do it even more. Our cleaning products are provided by a commercial cleaning supply provider and they are all hospital grade effective

– Add even more wash your hands rounds to our routine

– Every morning, we go over the rules of camp and the plan for the day. Discussion about preventing the spread of viruses will be a part of our daily morning routine. We will talk about social distancing, washing our hands, cleaning our mats.

– Staying outdoors as much as possible – however, if extreme heat that may not be possible but we do run a fresh air vent all day long.

– Kids that show any symptoms of being sick will be sent home and should not be brought to camp.

– Mats for circle time, Spanish lessons and rest time will be put at a distance.

– Toys will be disinfected after each play and kids will be asked to use hand sanitizer after playing with the toys.

– Absolute open communication and regular updates for parents. We are always here to hear your concerns and we value your feedback and opinion. Together we can decide what’s best for the safety of our children.

– There will be no field trips and recitals at least for June and July.

PARENTS ASKED ABOUT CAPACITY:

PARENTS ASKED WHAT WOULD THE DAY LOOK LIKE:

– With the above mentioned restrictions and measures, we plan to have our usual schedule: circle time, outdoor time, Spanish lesson, dance lesson, lunch, arts and crafts, another dance lesson, rest time (older kids do learning activities like reading, writing, math and younger kids listen to a story), we finish the day with story time and games.

– Recitals will be virtual via Zoom.

– We do not plan to go on field trips.

– We will use water toys to re-create our spray park experience on Wednesday of every week.

PARENTS ASKED IF KIDS WILL BE TAKING SNACK FROM ONE BOWL.

– NO, we never do that even on a normal summer. Snack is distributed in clean Dixie cups and handed to each child.

– Semester Classes
– Next year camps

PARENTS ASKED IF CHILDREN WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS:

– Each child must have a mask packed. While we cannot expect from young children to wear masks all day, we do our best to distance the kids and ask them to wear their masks for activities that requires them to be in close proximity to each other.

  • Studio Rules & Camp Dismissal

A child can be dismissed from camp under the following circumstances:

– Continuous disruptive and violent behavior: pushing, hitting, spitting, offending other campers, being disrespectful to teachers, staff and other campers, etc.

– Continuously disobeying instructors, separating from the group, pulling and playing with curtains, hanging off ballet barres, not following instructions, etc.

– Demonstrating continuous lack of interest for activities offered in the camp, disturbing and distracting other campers. We want your child to have fun and if they are simply not interested in the various activities that we offer, then we’ll advise that maybe he/she is interested in other types of camps (sports, etc.).

  • Dismissal Process

We will start by talking to the child and of course talking to the parents/guardians. We will write and give you incident reports. We will give you a first warning after the 3rd incident report. If behavior continues we will proceed with dismissing the child from camp.

  • Refunds Due To Dismissal

If you receive three dismissal warnings and your child is dismissed, we will not pro-rate and refund the rest of the camp enrollment fees.
