Summer Camp Update - as of May 19, 2020

Things are certainly not how we would expect them to be as we head towards the end of a school year and the start of a summer season. We know that summer activities are on everyone's mind so we wanted to provide an update to our Camp dates and plans.

Trapeze Arts closed on March 16 when the Shelter in Place orders began. At that point we had no idea how long the SIP would last or when we might be able to open again. Last week we started getting little glimmers of hope that we will be able to open again before the summer and have Summer Camp! It seems that programming for children may actually begin before our adult classes....

As soon as we felt this might be the case, we started working on all the things that we need to do to make Trapeze Arts a safe place for our staff and our students. We are currently developing and putting into place all the protocols for social distancing, cleaning, screening, etc... We also recognize that how we structure camp will have to be different from years past and we are making those adjustments as well. We anticipate smaller groups, less campers each week, staggered breaks and meal times and frequent hand washing, as just a few examples.

Recognizing and acknowledging that time is what we need to "flatten the curve", we have made the sad but necessary decision to cancel the first two weeks of camp. Our first week will now begin on July 13. We strongly believe that this additional month will only help to insure that we are taking the necessary precautions to keep everyone well and healthy.

Things to know.

Trapeze Arts Summer Camp

- Campers need to bring their lunch. Time will be allotted for a morning and afternoon snack, so send extra nibbles and drinks along.

- Children need to be dressed properly for circus activities. Leotards, t-shirts or tank tops are fine on top, and leggings or long fitted shorts should be worn on the legs.

- Long hair must be tied back.

- Closed toe shoes are required for some activities.

Put your mind at ease.

SAFETY is our number one concern. We have strict safety standards and guidelines that apply to all the activities in the gym. The flying trapeze is always done over a net and everyone wears a safety harness.
