Dear parents,

I wanted to reach out to you personally and explain our thoughts and plans for summer camp. Please know that we still plan to hold summer camp at the Art Factory with several modifications. Our first week of camp will be held on June 22nd.

We have been working hard to modify our space to accommodate smaller groups of kids by creating temporary partitions. At this time, we are planning to keep groups to 12 kids + 2 teachers.

We are also following the recommendation of Child Services and VA Health Department guidelines along with American Camp Association, so we are up to date on all sanitizing procedures, distancing, masks wearing, check in process and all other regulation as they are released.

Summer camp at the Art Factory will look a little different but we are going to do all we can to make sure it is just as much fun for the kids as years past.

Check in/out will be done outside, so we can keep our facility as clean as possible. Staff assigned to your child's group will not move from one room to the next, to reduce any kind of exposure from one group to the other. We may need to cancel our gallery show at the end of the week for the campers but we are considering holding the gallery display outside while allowing plenty of space for distancing.

Camp registration is still open and if you wish to secure a spot for your child you can click below to do so.

Since we plan to have smaller groups, if your child is hoping to spend camp with a friend, please let us know via email so we can keep friends together. Otherwise, we will do our best to keep age groups together when dividing the kids into groups.

I wanted to also thank you for all the support you offered during this time. Those of you who ordered balloons, and art kits or King of Pops delivery. Your patronage is helping us survive and all income is put aside so we can pay our bills.

We hope to survive this storm and offer creative services in our community for years to come! WE cant wait to see you and the kids this summer! Stay well!
