Things to consider when signing up for lessons and classes:
What device will you use for online access (phone, tablet, etc.)?
Do you have access to a suitably fast internet connection, and how many others in your household will need to use it at the same time?
All of our activities involve making sound! Do you have a space in your home where you can participate without disturbing others, and where noise from others’ activities won’t disturb your lesson or class?
Most lessons and classes will use Zoom and have been designed to make use of Zoom's free access. You will not need a paid account to participate.
Lesson teachers will set up times with camper families individually. Once a lesson is scheduled, if a camper misses a lesson it will not be made up. Any lessons missed by the teacher will be made up.
Class teachers will contact campers to set up the platform for their class and gather any class-specific information they need.
Campers may withdraw from lessons and/or classes anytime during the first week and receive a refund of their fees for those activities.
