2020 Summer Music Camps
UPDATE: May 12, 2020
We are happy to announce that we will be offering socially-distanced summer camps. All camps will comply with CDC and NCDHHS and the state Executive Order 138 regarding easing restrictions on travel, business operations, and mass gatherings: Phase 1. Specific details on day camp regulations from the NCDHHS can be found HERE.
Here are some guidelines and protocols that we are putting in place, including, but not limited to:
- Providing adequate hand sanitizer, hand washing stations, and disinfectant solutions.
- All campers will be required to bring masks to camp, and to wear them in all appropriate settings.
- Camps with more than 10 people will be held outdoors to assist in maintaining 6 or more feet of social distancing
- Camps with 10 or fewer people will be held indoors at AMS Loft, with proper ventilation assured, and will include as much outdoor time as possible.
- Singing will be properly monitored for extra social distancing, and will include masks and 1-person-use microphones at all times.
