COVID-19 Update

The Show Must Go on!

Last updated May 27th, 2020

 

Parents and Families,

The health, well-being, and safety of our campers has always been our first priority. We think that it is important to share all of the efforts that we are introducing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our program and help manage the health and safety of your children. Some of these changes are quite different from how we've operated in the past, so we encourage all parents to read through the following carefully.

As always if you have any questions, comments, or concerns we'd love to hear from you and can be contacted by email at campadmin@oklahomachildrenstheatre.org or by phone at (405) 208 6200.

 
LOCATION

We are excited to announce all summer camps will be held at the OKC Fairgrounds, at the former Oklahoma Contemporary Arts building.
Location Address: 3000 General Pershing Blvd, Oklahoma City, OK 73107. View on Google Maps

 

CURBSIDE CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT

You’ll be able to drop your child right at our front door and enjoy contactless check-in and out using our key-fob system.

 

LIMITING EXPOSURE

To promote social distancing, building access is limited to campers and staff only.

 

LET'S CHECK THE TEMP

All campers will have their temperature checked each morning using a touchless infrared thermometer. Campers with a fever greater than 100.4° will not be admitted to camp. We encourage parents to check their children’s temperature daily before coming to camp.

 

KEEPING HANDS CLEAN

We’ve carved out plenty of time each day for campers to wash their hands, including on arrival and before and after eating. In addition, hand sanitizer will be available in each classroom to be used as needed.

 

STAYING SEPARATE

We’ve reduced the number of students in each class and implemented practical measures that reduce high touch activities and games as well as shared supplies. Additionally, our campers will be encouraged to spread out during class times.

 

SNACKS AND LUNCH

Water fountains are a high-risk area, so we’re requiring all campers to bring their own labeled water bottle each day. Each classroom will have a designate area for lunchboxes and water bottles. Campers should only bring their sack lunch and water bottle each day, all other personal items including electronics must be left at home.

 

CLEAN MACHINE

Strict cleaning and sanitizing protocols are being introduced, including frequent cleaning of any high touch surfaces as well as ongoing sanitizing of all classrooms and shared spaces.

 

END OF SESSION SHOWCASES

In line with Social Distancing guidelines, we’re stopping our live end of session performances and gallery viewing. Instead, our performance classes will be filmed and made available online for families to enjoy together.

 

AFTERCARE

While our morning hours haven’t changed After Care will now end at 5:15 pm daily. Because there are no end of session showcases, After Care will be available on Friday afternoons.

 

DAILY CHECKS

Our staff will keep your campers safe by adhering to many new protocols including enhanced sanitation, daily temperature checks, and commitment to social distancing.

 

STAYING VIGILANT

Our policies have been shaped by CDC guidelines as well as health policies developed for child care centers and camps. We’re committed to remaining vigilant throughout camp and are ready to adjust how we do things when necessary.
