We are so excited to welcome our campers back to Art Camp this summer! Due to COVID-19, some aspects of camp will look different than past summers. Please take a moment to review the information below. These FAQs answer the questions parents and campers ask most often. If you have any additional questions or concerns that aren’t addressed here, please call us at 818-386-1107 or 818-523-7576 and we will be happy to help!



COVID19 QUESTIONS:
Are parents allowed on campus?
No. This summer, parents are not allowed to park and walk into campus. All drop off and pickup will be done "curbside". If you need to drop off your child late (or pick them up early), please arrange with the camp office and we will bring your child out to the car. Additional information about drop off & pickup will be sent out via email before camp.

Are masks required?
Yes. All campers and all staff members must wear a mask this summer. However, we are very aware of the heat and will give the children plenty of opportunities to take (socially distant and outdoor) "fresh air breaks".

Where is Art Camp getting it's information and guidance from?
The Art Camp is monitoring and following recommended protocols from The LA County Department of Heath, The Stae of California, CDC, The American Camp Association and locial officials. We will continue to update you via email (and this webpage) with new information as it is released.

What changes should I expect?
We have worked hard to create an environment for this summer that is fun, spirited, creative and safe. We have made a few modifications in order to do so. Each morning before camp, you will fill in an online health screening at home. When you arrive to campus, you will show us the screenshot of your completed health screening and we will take your child's temperature before escorting them into camp.

Rather than an all camp Opening Circle and Snack Time Games, we will offer individual "camp spirit" group games and activities. For lunch and snack time, group tables will be separated around campus. During playtime, each group will have a designated area on the yard. Additional sinage will be posted to help remind campers to socially distance. We have new outdoor handwashing stations, portable air filtration systems in each room and plenty of hand sanitizer ready to go!

Are you having sleepovers?
At this time, we are not able to offer sleepovers. But, we will let you know if anything changes!

What about the 1st Aid Office?
Each group's counselor will have a "mobile" first aid kit with minor injury relief. If your child requires more care, their Unit Leader will be notified and can assist the camper. If your child is sick or has an injury requiring medical attention, we will call you. Please make sure to pick up your child immediately if we determine that is needed.

How will you handle supplies?
Campers will each use their own individual supplies. For example, in a "LEGO mania" class, each child would get their own LEGO kit to build with. If there is a need for shared supplies, we would portion that out per child. For example, if we have one large jug of glue, each child would get a little plate with their glue on it (passed out by their counselor). If there is something that two kids need to touch, it would be sanitized between each use. For example, a lunch bench will be sprayed down when one child gets up before the other sits down.

How will lunch and recess work?
This summer we will have 4 "Units" at camp:

Unit 1(Groups 1-4), Unit 2(Groups 5-8), Unit 3(Groups 9-12) and Unit 4(Groups 13-16) For all of our break times, we will split up in half. Half the camp will eat, the other half will play. For example, at lunchtime, Units 1 & 2 (groups 1-8) will eat first. Each group will have 4-5 lunch tables with designated seat spots for the campers. The tables will be spread out around campus so the groups do not mix. Whild they are eating, Units 3 & 4 are playing. We will designate play areas for each group so that they don't mix either. Then, we will clean and disinfect before switching!

Are there any restrictions? Travel Guidelines?
We ask that you, our camp families, be mindful of your activities and choices for the week before your session start date (and during your time at Art Camp). Please understand that in order for Art Camp to work, we have to work together. Please avoid large group gatherings, additional playdates, vacations etc. Art Camp is a community and we all want your children to have the best summer ever so we kindly ask for your help in this. The current LA County travel guideline calls for a 10 day quarantine after leaving the State. However, this might change by the time camp runs. So, The Art Camp will monitor the LA County of Public Health website and follow their travel rules and guidelines. We will update our website & our COVID-19 Info Packet accordingly (as we get closer to camp starting). On May 1st we will email all families and let them know the rules for travel and quarantine according to our county and state. If you enroll in camp prior to then, and purchased a week of camp that you find out you have to quarantine in, we will refund you minus 5% or offer a full credit towards another week (if we have room).

If I have friends at the Art Camp, will I be in the same group with them?
If you have a friend you wanted to attend camp with, we will make every effort to put you with that friend. When you enroll in camp, simply select the same weeks & group number. Then you will be together all day! However, due to COVID19 we have smaller group sizes and if the group is full we can't open up extra spots. However, our amazing staff will absolutely help you make new friends and enjoy camp no matter what!

What if my child does not like an activity?
While The Art Camp strives to make Camp enjoyable for all campers, satisfaction with a workshop is subjective on the part of the child and the parent. Therefore, it is understood and agreed that The Art Camp cannot and does not guarantee or warrant any campers' satisfaction with the workshops they have chosen. Campers are not able to change worshops or groups within the current camp week. If they want to make changes to future weeks, and we have room, we can accomodate that.
Back to the Top

What if my child is attending camp alone?
Our camp counselors are AMAZING friendmakers and will help them adjust and enjoy their time at camp!

Are you open July 4th?

What if my child wants to attend additional weeks?

What if my child loses something at camp?
Please do not send anything to camp that is not replaceable and please put your child's name on everything! Our counselors do a very good job at trying to make sure nothing is left behind, but things do sometimes get left. If you return home and realize your child forgot something, please contact us as soon as possible so we can make every effort to get it to you. Items will be kept for one week in the Lost & Found when camp is over then donated to a local charity.

What if I need to reach my child at camp?
We want to work with you to make this experience a great one for your camper – we will call you if any of the following occur: Your child is very upset, your child is ill or injured and requires anything more than a Band-aid or an ice pack, there is anything we would like to discuss with you (behavior issues, medication doses, etc.). In case of an emergency at home (when you have to talk to your child), please call the camp office (or your Unit Director). Please use this option only in the case of emergencies.
