Changes to Before-Care & After-Care:
Out of an abundance of caution, we will only be able to accept twelve (12) pre-registered students for Before-Care and After-Care each week at each extended care site. We will not be offering a drop-in option for Before-Care or After-Care this year. All attendees to extended care must pre-register for Before- and/or After-care for the full week. More information about this can be found on the mandatory form linked below. We apologize for any inconvenience these changes to extended care programming may cause, and we appreciate your understanding that we must do what's most safe for our staff, students, and community.
Will there be a performance?:
Due to the limited timeframe, our one-week camps focus on community- and skill-building instead of working toward a full performance for friends and family. Students in these camps may perform for their fellow campers (if in compliance with CDC & local guidelines), however there will not be an invited Final Showing. Families will receive a short keepsake video of one musical number that features the entire ensemble. If an invited Final Showing is important to you and your family, please consider enrolling in a two week or three-week camp*.
*We plan to hold invited Final Showings for all two- and three-week camps. This is subject to change based on CDC and local mandates and/or site regulations.
Why is there no full video?
Campers will receive a short video to view and share! In addition, we encourage you to invite your camper to share the games, scenes, and songs that they have enjoyed throughout the week and to show off their art & crafts projects!
As a small non-profit organization, we do not have the staff resources to produce an edited full-length video for every camp cohort.
