Social Distancing

We will be practicing social distancing by limiting camp class size to 12 students and separating class chairs 6' apart.  To keep students safe and distanced, campers will not be sharing arts and crafts supplies but will be provided their own personal supply kit to use throughout each camp.


Masks are Required

All children, parents, staff, and volunteers will be required to wear a face covering or mask that covers your nose and mouth while in the building.  Face coverings may be removed only while eating or drinking. 


Drop-Off/Pick-Up

Camp runs from Monday through Friday 9:00am to 3:00pm. Camper must be picked up at 3:00 by the parent(s) or guardians(s) authorized on the registration form. Children will not be permitted to walk home unless permission is granted on the registration.  Due to COVID Pickup and Drop-off times must be adhered too. The BAC does NOT offer any extended care.

All persons entering the building must register their name and phone number, and no-touch temperature will be taken.


Hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout BAC and children will be asked to wash their hands regularly. 


Lunch – Snacks - Drinks

Children should bring a snack/lunch and drink in a labeled cooler bag daily.  No refrigeration or heating services are available.  Staff is only permitted to provide water for health and safety reasons.  Students are not allowed to share food with each other.  This policy is to insure the safety of each child by preventing allergic reactions.


Remain Home if Sick / Attendance

Parents are asked to monitor their children closely for any sign of potential illness. Students and parents should remain at home if they are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 including fever, new or persistent cough, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, fatigue and/or stomach issues. 


If a Student is sent home due to sickness a doctor's note is required to return to class. If your child becomes ill while at camp, we will utilize the contact list you provided upon registration.  BAC, or any staff, contractor, or volunteer of BAC, is not able to administer medications. Please do not send medications with your child.*

*Should you need a special accommodation to this policy, please discuss with the Administration at least 2 weeks prior to the start of camp.  We will do our best to accommodate your needs where this is possible.


Completed Projects

All completed projects must be removed at the end of each camp session.  Incomplete pottery and clay projects requiring glazing or firing must be picked up during the second week following the camp session your child attended.  Projects left at BAC will be forfeited to BAC for disposal or sale at BAC’s discretion.


Cancellations/Refunds

A full refund is provided minus a $50 administrative fee if we are notified at least 7 days prior to the start of camp.

No refunds will be issued for cancellations less than 7 days prior to the start of camp.

If your child is unable to attend camp due to an injury or illness, and you provide a doctor's note and notify us before the week begins, you will receive a full refund (minus the $50 non-refundable deposit). 

If your child attends a partial week, before cancelling due to injury or illness, we will give a pro-rated refund for the days the child missed if provided with a doctor's note. 

BAC reserves the right to dismiss any participant whose conduct or influence is not consistent with BAC conduct expectations. In such event, no refund will be given.
