Whether your child is going away for the first time or has been going to camp for years, you probably have some questions. These FAQs answer the questions parents and campers ask most often. If you have questions or concerns that aren’t addressed here, please call us at 323-459-5877 and we will be happy to help!

Are parents allowed on campus?
No. This summer, parents are not allowed to park and walk into campus. All drop off and pickup will be done "curbside". If you need to drop off your child late (or pick them up early), please arrange with the camp office and we will bring your child out to the car.

What changes should I expect?
We have worked hard to create an environment this summer that is fun, spirited, creative and safe. We have made a few modifications in order to do so. Rather than an all camp Opening Circle and Snack Time Games, we will offer individual group activities. For lunch and snack time, group tables will be separated around campus with staggered lunch times. During playtime, each group will have a designated area outside. Additional signage will be posted to help remind campers to socially distance. There will be a lot of washing of our hands throughout the day, and we will have planty of hand sanitizer to go around.

Are you having sleepovers?

What about the 1st Aid Office?
Each group's counselor will have a "mobile" first aid kit with minor injury relief. If your child requires more care, their Group Leader will be notified and can assist the camper. If your child is sick or has an injury requiring medical attention, we will call you. Please make sure to pick up your child immediately if we determine that is needed.

How will you handle supplies?
Campers will each use their own individual supplies.For example, for art they will have their own set of crayons, pencils, brushes, paint etc. Another example, in a "LEGO mania" class, each child would get their own LEGO kit to build with. If there is a need for shared supplies, we would portion that out per child. For example, if we have one large jug of glue, each child would get a little plate with their glue on it (passed out by their counselor). If there is something that two kids need to touch, it would be sanitized between each use. For example, a lunch bench will be sprayed down when one child gets up before the other sits down.

If I have friends at the Art Camp, will I be in the same group with them?
When you enroll in camp, simply select the same weeks & group number so you can sign up for the same group. Then you will be together all day! However, due to COVID19 we have smaller group sizes and if the group is full we can't open up extra spots. You can always move to another group that is open with your friends. However, our amazing staff will absolutely help you make new friends and enjoy camp no matter what!

What if my child does not like an activity?
While The Art Camp strives to make Camp enjoyable for all campers, satisfaction with a workshop is subjective on the part of the child and the parent. Therefore, it is understood and agreed that The Art Camp cannot and does not guarantee or warrant any campers' satisfaction with the workshops they have chosen. Campers are not able to change workshops or groups within the current camp week. If they want to make changes to future weeks, and we have room, we can accomodate that.

What if my child loses something at camp?
Please do not send anything to camp that is not replaceable and please put your child's name on everything! Our counselors do a very good job at trying to make sure nothing is left behind, but things do sometimes get left. If you return home and realize your child forgot something, please contact us as soon as possible so we can make every effort to get it to you. Items will be kept for one week in the Lost & Found when camp is over then donated to a local charity.
