We are so excited to welcome our campers back to Art Camp this summer! We continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation and engage Covid-19 mitigation strategies, but these do not impact the fun and enthusiasm of camp. 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 818-523-7576 and we will be happy to help!



COVID19 QUESTIONS:
Are parents allowed on 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 bring them inside campus (you can park and walk in OR we can bring your child out to the parking lot). Additional information about drop off & pickup will be sent out via email before camp.

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.

For lunch and snack time, group tables will be separated around campus. We have additional outdoor handwashing stations, portable air filtration systems in each room and plenty of hand sanitizer ready to go!

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 as much as possible. 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). Additionally, we will encourage kids to wash hands throughout the day!

How do lunch and recess work?
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, Groups 1-8 will eat first. Each group will have 1-2 group tables. While they are eating, Groups 9-17 are playing. Then, we will switch.
Back to the Top

Are there any restrictions?
No. But 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. If your child is feeling sick, please do not send them to camp. 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.

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.

Items will be kept for one week in the Lost & Found when camp is over then donated to a local charity.
