Safety Procedures and Requirements for Onsite Programs During COVID-19:

In accordance with updated state and local requirements, masks are strongly recommended for adults and children 3 and over while outdoors. Masks are currently required indoors (including access to restrooms) and during instances where social distancing is not possible while outdoors (such as some hands-on or group activities). Mask requirements are subject to change as needed in response to the changes in COVID-19 pandemic.


Class sizes are reduced to follow social distancing protocols. Sharing of materials between participant groups is limited. Workspaces and materials used during the program are disinfected frequently.


If the program is sold out, we encourage you to add your family's name to the waitlist.
