We are so excited to be offering our Summer Camps in-person again this year! With that in mind, please look over the following guidelines all campers and staff will be following:
Preparing Your Student for In-Person Camp
If wearing a mask most of the day will be new for your student, practice wearing a mask at home for increasingly longer durations working up to the length of the camp day. We recommend practicing different activities while wearing the mask including moving around, having conversations, and playing games.
Review the policies we have in place with your student and discuss why they are important.
Dress Code & What to Bring
Campers should dress in comfortable clothing they can move in and wear sneakers. All campers must wear a face mask! Each camper should bring a water bottle (drinking fountains are not accessible, so actors MUST bring their own water) and hand sanitizer (if desired). Please label all personal belongings.
Drop-off and Pickup
Drop-off and pick-up will occur in front parking lot to limit the number of people entering the building. Drop-off can be no more than 15 minutes before camp begins and pick-up must happen immediately at the end of the camp. Only actors and staff will be permitted in the building during camp.
Each actor will be met at the main atrium doors and have their temperature taken with a no-touch thermometer, before being directed to their assigned space. No one with a temperature higher than 100° will be permitted to enter the building.
Materials and Sanitation
No materials will be shared. Actors are responsible for bringing their script/score, etc. to camp each day. Any prop assigned to an actor will become the responsibility of that actor for the remainder of camp. All spaces will be cleaned and disinfected before campers and staff arrive each day. Hand-sanitizing stations are available throughout the building.
Actors and Staff will stay masked at all times. Camp participants and staff only remove masks to eat and drink. In accordance with CDC recommendations, we require that face mask closely cover an individual’s nose and mouth. Face shields may be worn in addition to masks but may not be worn instead of masks.
Register with Confidence
We recognize the COVID-19 pandemic is an ever-evolving situation and will continue to monitor the data and recommendations provided to us by the CDC, Ohio Department of Health, and local leadership. If any in-person summer camps must be canceled due to increased cases, changes in regulations, or an infected student/staff member, families will be offered a full refund if the camp has not yet started or a pro-rated refund if the camp has begun.
If you believe your student was exposed or if your student becomes infected before your scheduled camp begins, we can transfer your tuition to another education offering later in the year (depending upon availability), process your tuition as a donation, or process a refund.
If you cancel your registration at least five business days before the camp begins, you will be issued a refund (less a $25 cancellation fee). If you cancel your registration with less than five business days’ notice, no refund will be given. MCPA reserves the right to cancel camps with low enrollment. If we cancel a camp, you will receive a full refund.
MCPA reserves the right to cancel any in-person programming due to an increase in local cases, updated recommendations/regulations from the CDC, Ohio Department of Health, or local leaders, or because of the exposure or infection of any participant or CTC staff member.
There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place or group gathering. This includes the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts in-person summer camp programming. While we have taken the fullest safety measures possible to reduce the risk of exposure and infection, by participating in our in-person programming, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and any of its variants.
