COVID & Mask Policy (2023)

Masks are optional, with these precautions:
  • All participants will need a COVID self test with a negative result in order to attend the weekend.
  • All participants will need to sign a form regarding testing and falling ill. The form will be sent a week prior to camp. Please fill it out before coming to camp to reduce wait times.
  • We will have a dedicated "masks mandatory" line for those who wish to dance with a mask.
  • If the COVID situation should change drastically, we reserve the right to change this policy before camp, but sincerely hope this will not be necessary.
