*We will be following all CDC guidelines. For now (May 5th 2020) they do require a 6 foot space between non family members and a face mask for everyone over 2 who leave their house. We will withhold these practices until we hear otherwise. Please understand that if your child is coughing or sick with a fever they will not be able to stay. This is for the health of everyone in the camp.
*For each camp we will allow only 10 campers. This will enable us to split the camps into 2 groups of 5. The camps will be lead by myself, Becky and Amy, my assistant. The kids exposure to teachers/camp counselors will be kept to a minimum but we will strive to maintain that family feeling through the morning.
* We will also supply single use soap slip packages for each child. They will have access to water and for the most part can stay out of the restrooms to wash their hands. We will also supply disposable gloves however we have noticed that the kids tend to feel more comfortable in riding gloves. You can order inexpensive Ovation children leather riding gloves for around $14.00 on Amazon.com too.
*WE do REQUIRE that each child has their own helmet This will help keep everyone safe and healthy. You can order a Troxel helmet on amazon.com for around $50.00. They can spray down their helmet every afternoon at the barn and keep it in their craft bag with their crop and brush for the week.
*All art projects will be self contained as well i.e. no shared pens, pencils, paper, clay etc. We will attempt to get each project home everyday so nothing stays behind.
*Please make sure that the lunches packed can be managed by your child alone, including water bottles.
*If there is another wave of the virus and we are required to close down camp you will be reimbursed camp tuition.
*Stay safe and healthy!
