2022 Summer Classes

Hello Summer Campers!!

 

We are so excited to get started with you!  Obviously we need to explain our Summer Protocols so that you can make a comfortable decision for your family.  So here we go!  There are limited spaces available in our camps!  

 

Open House

This will be the only chance for adults to be in the studio (see below). We recommend all students stop by to check out the studio and acclimate to the space for everyone's comfort.  You will have a chance to meet the instructors and make any purchases that you might need.  GCAPA will be closed June 13-June 19th following our annual recital.

Monday, May 21, 2022 from 12:00-2:00pm

 

Camp Drop-off/Pick-up

When dropping off Campers we ask that you bring them to the front steps where we will check each child in and verify your emergency contact information. Please do not enter the building while we maintain our limited # of persons in one space.  Adults will not have the option to enter or stay in the lobby this Summer because of limited space.  For potty runs for yourself or siblings, we recommend using your home facilities before coming to camp or the Starbucks 2 doors up.  Next year, we will welcome in your whole family!

Camp Protocols

Based on current GCAPA guidelines:

  • Instructors will be healthy or we will have subs.  

  • Masks are, and always will be, optional.

  • Friday performances may be set up for live-stream as we cannot have additional people inside the studio.

  • If your child has separation anxiety and is inconsolable, we will call you to pick-up and try again the next day.

 

Food/Snacktime

For snack time, we require that you pack your camper a fruit or vegetable as a snack.  WATER ONLY.  This helps us to avoid any allergies, sugar rushes, and behavioral issues.

 

Epipens

If your child has an epipen, please notify the instructor on the first day of the following:

  • What  your camper is allergic to

  • What signs your camper will show that we should look for

  • How to use your epipen

 

Bags

Each camper should bring a bag to camp.  Bags should be labeled with your campers last name.  Snacks, water and dance shoes should be the only things inside your campers bag.  Toys must be kept at home.

 

Withdrawal - based on sudden illness

If your dancer or someone in your home is exhibiting flu-like symptoms or has tested positive for Covid within 14 days, please notify GCAPA by email so that we may act accordingly.  Please email a doctor's note outlining the symptoms or positive COVID test so that we may credit your tuition to Fall or Summer 2022 tuition.  Please know your options BEFORE enrolling.

Notification

We ask that you notify us of any potential illness of anyone in your household or contact so that we may do the same.  Your name will be anonymous.  It is OUR obligation to notify our families of any potential hazard.  We thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation.

 

We thank you so much for choosing Grand Central for your Summer Camps and look forward to an awesome, fun, safe Summer!!!
