Safety and Protocols

LAST UPDATE: 6/1/2021 - This information will be updated by December 13, 2021, but is subject to change. Creative Summer will follow safety protocols established by Holton-Arms School, and will fully comply with State and Local regulations.

We are working closely with Holton-Arms School's COVID-19 Task Force on health and safety protocols for this summer. Our campers will experience the same care and concern that has allowed Holton-Arms students to engage in on-campus learning this year. 

Voluntary Participation

Parents understand that their child's return to campus is voluntary, and that Creative Summer has made available alternative distance-learning plans for those campers who do not wish to return to campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. By sending their child to campus, parents acknowledge that their camper is in good health and is able and willing to attend Creative Summer @ Holton 2021.

Assumption of Risk

COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread by person-to-person contact; and, as a result, federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and various other measures to mitigate the risk of contracting the virus. Creative Summer has implemented reasonable preventative protocols, policies and procedures designed to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Campers and their families are expected to adhere to these protocols in order to reduce the risks of contracting or spreading the virus at camp.

Despite the Safety Policies and other measures in place to mitigate the risk of transmission of COVID-19 on campus, there are inherent risks that campers and/or their families may become infected with COVID-19 due to the camper’s participation in in person classes at Creative Summer. These risks include, but are not limited to, the following: exposure to COVID-19, becoming infected with COVID-19, or becoming a symptomatic or asymptomatic carrier of the virus.

It is possible that a camper is already an asymptomatic carrier of the virus before and that the camper may infect other campers, employees, or other individuals at Creative Summer as a result of their attendance. Any person who receives a positive diagnosis of COVID-19, including a camper or their family member, may encounter extended quarantine/self-isolation, additional tests, medical care, hospitalization, other potential complications, and the risk of death. By allowing their child(ren) to come to campus for any reason, parents understand, acknowledge and voluntarily assume these risks on behalf of themselves and the camper(s).
