Our camp sessions will have limited participation and have been restructured for social distancing. For the safety of our campers and staff, and to maintain social distancing the layout of the studio has changed. Campers will not share tools or equipment. We added new procedures for pick-up / drop-off. Hand-washing time is integrated into the camp schedule, and new hand sanitizer stations are placed throughout the studio. Face coverings are required for all campers and camp staff. High-use surface areas and restrooms will be cleaned throughout the day and thoroughly disinfected after camp each day.
