Summer Camp FAQ

Spruill Center for the Arts will be opened only to admin staff, camp instructors, campers & students of all age-registered programs

Facemasks will be required by all who enter the building. During camp, admin staff will wear masks when in building (outside of their offices).

All campers & instructors will be screened prior to entrance for signs of illness or exhibiting a fever over 100.4 degrees F, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, or new loss
of taste or smell. All will be asked to verbally verify the absence of symptoms in addition to the staff screening. Anyone with a fever over 100.4 degrees F will not not be permitted into the building.

Should your child show any signs of illness they must be kept at home. Please consult your pediatrician regarding treatment advice based on your child’s symptoms.

Temperature checks will be conducted on every individual prior to entering the building. Anyone with a temperature over 100.4 degrees F will not be permitted into the building. If an instructor or camper begins showing symptoms during the day, they will be quickly isolated from the group. For campers, the parents will be called to come and pick up their child.
Parents must agree prior to drop off that any call for pick up will be addressed immediately. Instructors will be required to the leave art center as soon as possible.

Drop off will take place in front of the Spruill Center for the Arts. There will be staggered drop off times for each age group beginning at 8:20am. If drivers arrive before their scheduled drop off time please wait in the library parking lot.

Drivers will be instructed to stay in their car with their campers. Staff will open the door and assist the camper as they get out of the car. After completion of the health screening process, the camper will sanitize their hands upon entering the building and then be escorted by another staff member or junior volunteer to their class.

Afternoon carpool will take place from 3-4pm with staggered pick up times. The procedure from morning carpool/drop off will effectively be reversed for afternoon pick up. Adults will not get out of their cars. Staff will be in the carpool line to assist. Parking lot staff will request campers for dismissal with a walkie-talkie and each camper will be escorted to their car by another staffer or junior volunteer. Staff will open the car doors and assist campers into their cars.

Parents needing to pick up their child(ren) before 2:30pm are required to email the Camp Director by 11am for early pick-up.

Each classroom will have its own CDC approved cleaning supplies and will be sanitized during the day by the Spruill staff and instructors.

Additionally, frequently touched surfaces (i.e., tables, doorknobs/handles, light switches, countertops, toilets, faucets, sinks, etc.) will be cleaned and disinfected frequently throughout the day. Spruill staff will be assigned to ensure this schedule is adhered to.

The public bathrooms will be maintained by the City of Dunwoody staff and cleaned throughout the day.

Campers will be required to wash their hands upon entering the art center each day, after restroom breaks, before and after lunch/snack breaks, and between all art activities. Sanitizing stations will be placed at the entrance and exit of the building and each classroom will also have hand sanitizer.
