We will provide sanitizers for your use during the class. All spaces and equipment will be cleaned and sanitized before the program begins and will not be shared between children during the program. All participant’s temperatures will be checked before the start of the program and we ask that if you or a member of your household is showing signs or symptoms of COVID, please stay home. For a list of signs and symptoms, please check the CDC’s website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html

We ask that you:

  1. Bring a mask for all participants ages 9+ (during exploration times when distancing is kept, masks can be removed).
  2. Use restrooms before you leave your house! We have two port-a-potties on site for your use.
  3. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen and bug spray. We will not be providing these items.
  4. For water based lessons  please have your child wear a swim suit and water shoes. Adults are encouraged to wade in the water as well. Towels and a change of clothes are always a good idea!
