Extended Care: Credits can not be used to pay for extended care. There are no refunds or credits available for unused Extended Care days, unless it is before camp starts.



All campers are expected to be able to function well in a group setting.  If we find that a camper is not able to follow directions or interact positively with other campers and staff,  we will inform parents, get recommendations for interventions and, if those are unsuccessful, we reserve the right to withdraw them from the camp.  Refunds or credits are not guaranteed and will be handled on a case by case basis.  If you have any questions about whether one of our camps is a good option for your child please contact us before enrolling.


All campers must be fully potty trained and independent in the restroom.


It is important that families read the camp newsletter in its entirety. It is sent out two week prior to camp and has important information regarding what campers need to bring, show information (if applicable), pick-up and drop-off procedures and more.


Too sick to attend camp: If you child has Covid we need a photo of the positive test emailed to us and we will provide a full credit for the camp less an $25.00 administrative fee. If your child does not have have Covid but has active symptoms that are not 80% resolved, we need a doctor's note confirming the illness in order to provide a full credit available for a full year less a $25.00 administrative fee. As space allows, we will try to get you into another camp this summer.

Prior to camp: If your child is starting camp while recovering from and illness we must be notified 24 hours BEFORE camp, they must have symptoms 80% resolved with no persistent coughing/runny nose, and we need proof of a negative covid test taken the  morning of the first day of camp. It is up to the discretion of staff to determine whether symptoms are mild enough to attend camp.

During camp:    If campers become ill during a camp day, they must be able to be picked up within an hour. For any illness during camp, a Covid test is required and campers can not return unless symptoms are 80% resolved.   If staff did not observe the onset of symptoms, we will require a doctor's note to confirm the illness in order to provide a prorated credit available for a full year for the days missed of camp.


Exposure to Covid: We must be informed of any camper that has been exposed to Covid within 10 days prior to the first day of camp or during camp. Covid tests prior to attending camp every day will be required. Please provide a picture of the dated test at drop off.

If a member of the household is Covid positive they need to be quarantining away from the camper. If this is not possible we will need the camper to not attend camp. To be eligible for a credit for days missed, proof of the positive Covid test of the household member must be provided.

Camper Covid Policies:

Our Covid policies will vary depending on the rates of infection at the time of camps.  Clarification of requirements will be provided in your camp newsletter sent two weeks before camp. Covid tests prior to camp starting and the use of KN95 masks may be required. Please be aware of this possibility before signing up a camper that may not be able to comply with this requirement.   Credits or refunds are not guaranteed if your child can not comply.

Campers in musical theater may have to test prior to the show in order to go mask free for the performance.  It is highly likely that, regardless of Covid rates, audience members will be required to wear mask.

Our Commitment to Limit Exposure

We do our best to provide a safe environment for all campers. In addition to monitoring everyone's health, testing for Covid when needed, and requiring masks based on infection rates, we have medical grade air filters in use, break into smaller groups when possible, eat outside and/or socially distance, and wash/sanitize hands on a regular basis.  Staff are trained to reinforce Covid safe behaviors with all campers.
