Health and Safety
The health and safety of our students is of the utmost importance. To maintain a safe learning environment, we are reducing our in-person camp size to a maximum of twelve students, increasing our cleaning frequency, and practicing physical distancing and mask wearing during class. We will also be asking our students to aid us in creating a safe and comfortable learning environment. Find a quick summary of our health and safety measures here, or explore our detailed health and safety procedures.
