CampTMP Covid Policy

As we approach Summer Camp 2022, we have taken some time to re-evaluate our Covid safety policies and I wanted to notify you of those changes. As state and federal guidance regarding Covid safety evolves, we are wanting to evolve with it, while still maintaining a moderate level of caution. 

Starting with Spring Homeschool and After School Academy – Pirates! 2: The Hidden Treasure we will be requiring ALL campers to EITHER provide proof of vaccination against Covid-19 OR submit to a testing regimen for the duration of their program for the remainder of the 2021-2022 season– Spring Homeschool/After School, Saturday Academy, Spring Honor Camp and Summer Camp. This will be re-evaluated before the 2022-2023 season. This applies to all ages as everyone of age for our programs is of age to receive the vaccine. 

For Homeschool/After School Academies and Saturday Academy testing will be once a week. For Summer Camp testing will take place every Monday and Wednesday, as well as the day of the first performance. We are asking that families provide their own at-home test kits (as they are easily accessible now) and will have a testing station set up at The Spire for campers to take their tests upon arrival on testing days. We will not be providing the tests for campers who choose the testing option.

At this time our daily Covid safety routine will not be changing. This consists of the same symptom and temperature check that we have been doing since we returned in May 2021. Campers will have their temperature checked and will be asked if they are experiencing a list of symptoms or if they have been exposed to Covid to the best of their knowledge. Parents will assist with answers for younger campers. Masks will be worn at all times. We will have access to sanitizer and extra masks always for campers, and staff will sanitize rehearsal spaces between classes.

Masks will continue to be worn for performances at this time. This may be re-evaluated during the summer.

Our audience Covid policy can be found here and is continuing to be updated on a show-by-show basis. At this time we are just requiring masks. 

Audience policy and masking are the only things that could still change before the end of 2021-2022 season. The vaccination or testing requirement for campers will not change before September 2022.

We appreciate your cooperation as we do our best to make sure your kids still are receiving quality musical theater education during this pandemic. Questions can be directed to Director of Education, Kayla Littleton, at kayla@tmp.org. (Updated 5-9-22)
