Summer Break Camps
Summer Planning with Parker Arts
Parker Arts Summer Camps will open June 1 with limited capacity.
In order to run camps during this unprecedented time, Parker Arts and contracted camp providers have set into place new practices to conduct in-person learning and hands-on activities while continuing to keep all participants safe and help prevent the spread of COVID19.
Camp Safety Guidelines:
- Limited enrollment (10 students, 1-2 instructors);
- Staff, instructors and campers will be screened for symptoms upon arrival to ensure they are symptom-free.
- Social distancing practices inside the classroom (one student per table);
- Consistent grouping of students and instructors to limit exposure;
- Eating snack inside classroom;
- Eating lunch outdoors with sufficient social distancing;
- Ensure adequate supplies to minimize sharing of high touch materials, limit use to one student or one group where possible, and clean materials between uses;
- Adhere to scheduled hand sanitizing breaks inside classroom;
- Follow schedule of classroom, restroom and lobby disinfection;
- Require staff, instructors, and campers to stay home if someone they have come in contact with has recently traveled, known to have the 2019 Coronavirus, or if they have the onset of cold/flu symptoms or respiratory symptoms; and
- Require staff, instructors, and campers to wear masks or face coverings whenever possible.
- Note, PACE Center Parent Lounge is closed.
Camper Safety Procedures:
- Daily temperatures must be taken of campers at home prior to attending camp;
- Entry and Exit will be through the exterior classroom door and not through the lobby of the PACE Center;
- Exterior doors will be propped open at the start and end of each camp;
- Family groups will be guided to line up (socially distanced) at stanchions leading to the exterior classroom door of their camp;
- Instructors will sign each camper in and out on the roster (No passing of documents or pens will be permitted.);
- Only campers will enter the classroom (Parents/guardians are not permitted inside.);
- Campers will immediately wash their hands at the sink prior to taking a seat; and will abide by a handwashing schedule between activities, and at least once per hour;
- Campers will be instructed to keep their selected seat throughout the duration of the camp;
- Campers should come with minimal belongings; limited to a water-bottle and peanut-fee snack (or peanut free lunch if staying for both morning and afternoon and doing Lunch Bunch). Items will be placed in a cubby when possible or under their assigned seat; and
- Campers must wear masks or face coverings whenever possible.
2020 Summer Recreation and Cultural Brochure
Given the rapidly changing environment due to COVID-19, and as we are considering cost-saving measures, we have decided to cancel the printing and mailing of the Summer 2020 Recreation and Cultural Activity Brochure and offer an online-only edition at here.
