Summer Art Camp at Spark! We will be holding our Summer Art Camp but space is very LIMITED to ensure a safe experience! We are very thankful to have two large spaces for our camp, and each Spark has 10 big tables made of full size doors. We will hold 11 weeks of camp! We have been working hard to figure out how to have a safe and socially distanced environment. We have now added Friday Day Camp! If you are signing up for the whole week pick the week of camp that you want and you will have an option before check out to add the Friday Day Camp. If you just want to come to Friday Day Camp, choose your date below!
Here is the plan - each camper will have their own mini art "studio" on their own table. Their mini "studio" will have all the supplies that they need for each project we do (painting, jewelry making, clay), and their "studio" will also double as their snack and lunch area. Each Spark has 10 big tables so each student will have plenty of social distance from each other. We will wash hands, wear masks, and use hand sanitizer frequently. With each student having their own set of supplies and their own "studio" we can experience all the good things about Spark but in a contactless setting!

I know it may seem like a lifetime ago that you signed your child up for Art Camp at Spark! We are less than two weeks away from our first session starting May 25th! I want to update you on our plans - I would have been heartbroken if we couldn't have camp but I wanted to proceed very cautiously. After a long discussion with the code people and studying the guidelines from Kemp for Day Camps, we have put into place a plan that will help us have a safe (but still awesome!) camp experience. I'm very thankful we have two big spaces (Spark 1 and Spark 2) - this is our plan!
We are registering a maximum of 20 kids per week and will have up to 10 kids at each Spark. We will have a maximum of one teacher and one assistant for each ten kids (no additional adults will have contact with the kids)
When you arrive, parents will stay in the car and drop off curbside to minimize contact with adults. Our morning check in will be contact less. We will take each child's temperature before they go in and ask if there has been any recent illness or fever. We also will screen each camp worker every day to make sure there is no sign of COVID-19 related illness. If any child has any signs of illness or fever, they will be isolated from the other children immediately and the parent will be called to pick up their child. Parents will be notified if any children or staff at camp have any symptoms of any sickness.
Instead of the kids being at big tables together, every camper gets their own "mini-studio" (each Spark has 6 foot tables that are doors - it's a big table so over 8-10 feet between each child), so we have plenty of social distancing space. Each child will have their own set of art supplies (own paints, brushes, clay supplies etc so no sharing of supplies). Each table will also have a bottle of sanitizer. Masks are recommended to be worn at their tables and when they get up for the bathroom or to wash hands. Included in your camp registration is a mask that we will provide if they need one. We will frequently sanitize the bathroom during the day. Lunches brought in from home will be eaten at their own tables, and prepackaged snacks/drinks will be on their table.
All of this is to say - Safety first at camp!
We are pouring paint, getting in new paint brushes, sanitizing our space and (very exciting!) planning new projects - oh so so much fun!!! I can't wait!!
I look forward to see you and your child(ren) at camp!!! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com or at the store number (706-769-2656).
Thank you!!! -Ann
