Are you ready?  We're open for Summer Camp!

We are planning on running most of our regularly scheduled camp programs but will continue to monitor the latest guidelines on health and safety set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as local State Departments and the American Camp Association. We've been closed for the past 2 months, for our customers’ sake we closed before it was mandatory and are still closed after we were allowed to reopen. We are a Small, locally owned business, we’ve been hit hard financially and miss our students dearly!  Like most small businesses, we are doing what we can to stay afloat while supporting our families and staff. We've been busy monitoring info, designing a Safety Plan and investing in physical changes in our facilities to make sure we can offer you the safest environment possible for your kids this Summer.

-We’ve modified our registration and cancellation policy as well as our operational procedures. To learn more about the safety measures we’ll be taking this Summer, please keep reading.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions.

-We’ve drastically decreased our occupancy in both locations, which makes spots even more limited than usual. By limited, we’re talking about groups of approx 8-10 kids.  While we will do our best to accommodate returning families, we cannot guarantee a space will be available for your child if you wish to return after cancellation.  

-We are keeping “stable groups” (same group of kids and instructors all week) which means we won’t have “drop-ins” (single day/per day campers) in June.  We are hoping that changes in July and August.

 -6ft floor marks to keep social distance when dropping off/picking up kids.

- Our staff will assist you with touchless student’s check-in and out at drop off and pick up to avoid touching pens, door knobs and screens.

- We’ll provide chef hats, aprons and face shields for the kids to use during class, but to enter our studio must wear a face mask.

- To keep “stable groups” only the kids registered will have access to our facility, no parents or siblings allowed at the studio or restroom.

- If there’s a line outside our building, please wait in the car or follow the Social Distancing signs/marks while waiting.

-You’ll be required to answer a few questions at drop off and all kids’ temperatures will be taken at drop off everyday. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher won’t be able to stay.

-For obvious reasons, we’ll be enforcing our Illness Policy.  If your child presents visible symptoms of sickness, he/she won’t be able to stay.

-We’ve installed commercial sneeze guards on every workstation so there’s always a barrier between kids.  There’s only one child per workstation.

-Our workstations layout has been modified to maintain the recommended social distance.

-Each camper will work individually during camp but our instructors and assistants will always be there to assist them as much as they need. Children do not share workstations, food, utensils or equipment.

-We’ve increased our cleaning procedures and rotations. We’re routinely cleaning and sanitizing all surfaces in the studio such as workstations, tables, countertops, sneeze guards, equipment and doorknobs with EPA approved cleaning and sanitizing products.

-We have hand sanitizer available at the entrance, reception area, restroom and kitchen. Everyone entering our building must sanitize their hands.  Once kids are wearing their chef hats, aprons and face shields, they’ll be required to wash their hands before cooking.

-Everyone walking into our facility, must wear a face mask and use hand sanitizer.  

-Disinfectant wipes are available throughout the studio so commonly used surfaces can be wiped down by employees as often as needed.

-Although we’re cleaning often, we are still deep cleaning and sanitizing equipment is done everyday at the beginning and at the end of camps.

-Hand sanitizer is a substitute but should not take the place of hand washing.  Kids will be washing their hands a lot! As usual. Before and after cooking, before eating and after going to the bathroom, blowing their nose, coughing or sneezing, etc.
