Nitty Gritty Info 

To allow for social distancing, eight students are the maximum in camps and classes.

 

Camps and classes will take place in the garden, under the bohemian big top, and in the cottage.

 

Mrs. Z and students will wear masks and complete a daily health check prior to the arrival at camp.

 

We will wash our hands throughout the day and practice social distancing.

 

Please plan mindfully booking camp sessions around your summer travel plans as these camps and classes do not offer a virtual component. Please allow ten days between travel and the beginning of your camp session.

 

Students need to wear their own mask and bring a filled water bottle and peanut-free lunch. Cold storage will be provided. Camp supplies, snacks, and bottled water refills will be provided. Wear comfortable cool clothing and tennis shoes. Bring a light sweater or jacket.
