Currently, Summer Camp 2021 is scheduled to run from 9:30-12:30pm (morning theme-based yoga camps for ages 3-8) and 9:30-1:30pm (morning aerial & acro yoga camps for ages 8 & up)

Will camp be held inside or outside?

As we know, this pandemic continues to change daily. At Born Yoga, the health and safety of our students, families and staff is always the number 1 concern. With that being said, we will plan to run summer camp mostly outdoors, however, if the state of the pandemic allows for us to safely be inside, then we will utilize the STUDIO and the NEW OM SCHOOL classroom as well.

What if it rains?

Camp will be cancelled or shortened if it is raining and we are not able to safely be inside. We will notify you at least 1 hour before the start of camp.

What if my child has to use the bathroom?

-If your child has to use the bathroom, a counselor will wear a mask and gloves to hold their hand and walk them to the studio. All counselors have been trained in proper hygiene as well as how to help your child properly wash their hands. All bathroom surfaces will be sanitized after every use. A new pair of gloves will be worn to walk your child back to the field.

What is required of Camp Counselors?

-Counselors are required to wear masks and gloves during snack and craft time.

-Counselors are required to wear a mask during the entire duration of camp and will be given fresh air breaks away from the group.

-Staff temperatures will be checked daily before and after each camp session.

What are the new drop-off & pick up procedures?

-TBD based on the state of the pandemic and the governors orders at the time of camp.

What if someone else is bringing or picking up my child?

-As always, a WRITTEN NOTE must be given to the Counselor at drop off (or emailed to Ashley ahead of time) if someone other than yourself will be bringing or picking up your camper. Please let us know if you need additional signs made for your car window.

-Please let that person know that we will ask to see their drivers license and that they will need to place the sign in their window.

Will there still be snack time?

-Yes. We will still provide a healthy snack for all of the kids. Each child will be given their own portion of snack (handed out by our staff with gloves and a mask). Snack is ALWAYS NUT FREE and will vary between goldfish crackers, skinny pop, veggie straws, apples, watermelon and clementines. On Fridays we will have popsicles or a special treat.

Does my child have to wear a mask?

-Masks are REQUIRED while indoors. At this time, we are not requiring your child to wear a mask while outdoors. We will leave that decision up to you.

What should my child wear?

-ALL children MUST WEAR A BATHING SUIT underneath their clothing. Time is limited and we will not be able to help your child change or take them to change at the studio if they do not have their bathing suits on before camp.

-If your child is attending a themed camp where they can dress up (e.g. Princess Yoginis), by all means please feel free to send them with a princess dress or superhero costume over their swimsuit. Please send additional clothes to change into in case they get hot.

-Please put your child in WATER SHOES or shoes you don’t mind them getting wet. They will keep their shoes on while running around for water play to ensure their safety. Nobody likes stepping on a pine cone!

-ABSOLUTELY NO FLIP FLOPS!!

Should my child wear sunscreen?

ABSOLUTELY. It is required that you PRE-APPLY sunscreen before arriving to camp. We will NOT apply sunscreen to your child. There are plenty of shaded spots at the field and we will be in the shade as much as possible.

What does my child need to bring?

-A yoga mat
-A towel
-A change of clothes or a cover-up (PREFERRED)
-A water bottle
-Please label everything

When is the balance due?

-WEAR LEGGINGS OR PANTS!!!!! It is highly recommended that kids wear leggings or pants to protect their skin as they move in the yoga fabric. When they do poses in the fabric with short shorts or leotards, it can feel very uncomfortable and limit participation.
