MISSION & PROCLAMATION:

We know how difficult it has been for everyone the past few months and understand that with the warm weather and relaxed stay-at-home restrictions, we are all trying to find our way to navigate this "new normal."  We have been given the green light to operate our program this summer, however, we will be implementing critical changes in efforts of being in strict compliance with all state and city guidelines.  The peace in mind of our parents and participant safety are our utmost priorities!  

The Summer Youth Activity Program (SYAP) affords children an opportunity to engage in supervised, fun-filled activities...responsibly and safely!  Daily temperature scans for all participants, capacity reduced to 35%, social distancing, mandatory face coverings, and increased daily sanitation throughout the day are just a few of the measures we are taking to keep everyone safe.  

PROGRAM OPERATION DATES

July 13th - August 21st

Unfortunately, social distancing, face coverings, and a whole bunch of anxiety have been our new normal.  We know it's been hard on you AND your kids during this time and we ALL need a break; kids included!  We've got years of experience working with kids in a normal setting where our reputation speaks for itself.  Now, allow us to assist you with navigating the "new normal" as we have made dramatic and profound changes to our summer program to keep EVERYONE safe. Though we won't be boasting our normal phenomenal trip lineup this summer, we do have a host of engaging activities affording our participants to socialize safely supervised by a trained staff dedicated to remind your kids about safety.


WHY CAN YOU TRUST US?

As mentioned above, our staff has a great deal of experience engaging with kids and keeping them active but this summer the key word is safety!  Here are some of the daily safety measures we will be following:


  • All members and staff will be temperature scanned DAILY upon entry with a no-touch forehead thermometer
  • Staff will be monitoring and reminding all members about keeping their masks or shields on throughout the day
  • We are limiting our capacity to a maximum of 20 children to exercise social distancing
  • All high and medium tough areas of the facility will be sanitized 3 times daily
  • Hand sanitizer and gloves will be used for anyone using game controllers or any other game
  • Members will only be allowed to enter facility 15 minutes prior to the start of program day and must vacate the premises immediately upon the ending of the program day

We cannot stress enough how much safety is our number one priority!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE

We understand these are not normal times so we want to be as flexible as we can with our schedule.  It is this reason, we are offering full-day and half-day enrollment options.  So whether you want your child to get out for a few hours or the whole day, we've got you covered.  Full days are from 9am to 4pm.  There are two half-day options; morning and afternoon.  The morning session is from 9am to 12pm and afternoon session is from 1pm to 4pm.  


You may also register for as many weeks as you'd like.  There is no minimum and weeks do not have to be concurrent.  See below for schedule, hours, and rates.


WHAT ARE THE AGE RANGES OF PARTICIPANTS?

The age ranges of participants is 8-13 years.  We will accept children ages 6 and 7 if they have been registered in any of our programs within the past year (eg kung-fu, after school program, summer camp).  Contact us for more information.  


DO WE PROVIDE LUNCH AND SNACKS? 

Daily lunch is not provided.  Participants must bring lunch from home (microwavable/sandwiches).  Children will not be allowed to leave the premises throughout the day to purchase from from the local food vendors.  Pizza Party Fridays will be available to all full-time participants on Fridays.  There is no additional cost for Pizza Party Fridays.

Both full-time and half-day participants will receive daily snacks.  


I PAID A DEPOSIT TOWARDS 2020 SUMMER CAMP.  MAY I CREDIT THAT DEPOSIT TOWARDS THE SYAP?

Any deposits that were made towards 2020 Summer Camp may either be refunded or credited towards the Summer Youth Activity Program.  Deposits may also be credited towards Virtual Kung-Fu, Saturday Kung-Fu, or any other active program in 2020 or 2021.  


WHAT SHOULD PARTICIPANTS WEAR?

All participants should wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing along with sneakers.  Sandals and flip flops will not be suitable for all activities.  And don't forget about a face covering!


MAY I MIX AND MATCH FULL-DAY AND HALF-DAY ENROLLMENTS?

YES.  A child may be registered one week for a full days and another week for half days.  A member may NOT mix full and half days within the same week. 


WHAT KIND OF ACTIVITIES WILL THE CHILDREN BE ENGAGED IN?

We have a host of games and activities tailored to children of all ages where we can exercise social distancing.  Some of our outdoor activities include the following but are not limited to dodgeball, volleyball, ultimate frisbee, soccer, handball, water balloon games, our Martial Way Olympics, scavenger hunts, and park and recreation time.  Some of our indoor activities include the following but are not limited board games, video games, indoor interactive games, arts and crafts, karaoke, in-house movie day, and Let's Make a Movie! (weekly).  All members will be monitored during the day and reminded about face coverings and social distancing.  


WHEN INDOORS, HOW WILL SOCIAL DISTANCING BE EXERCISED?

With our reduced capacity, it will be easy to limit the number of children on our upper and lower levels.  There will be no more than 12 children on our upper level with a maximum of 8 children on our lower level.  Tables and chairs will be configured to exercise social distancing where there will be a maximum of 4 children per 8 foot table max.  Video game stations will have clear floor marked outlines to ensure distancing with a maximum of 2 children per game system.  For our full-time members, lunch will be eaten in an untouched, designated area on our lower level.  


WHAT IS THE CHILD-TO-COUNSELOR RATIO?

Our child-to-counselor ratio is 4:1. 


DOES MY CHILD NEED MONEY?

Money will only be necessary in the event if your child would like to purchase an icee from the roaming local vendor when outside.  


WHY ARE THERE NO TRIPS THIS SUMMER?

As much as we would love to take our children on the amazing trips they look forward attending with us to year after year, we simply do not feel confident with bringing them to locations where we cannot have ultimate control of the setting to exercise a high standard of safety. 


I WOULD LIKE TO SIGN UP FOR MULTIPLE WEEKS.  DO THEY NEED TO BE CONCURRENT?

No, you are welcome to register for any week(s) you'd like providing there is space available.  Please be mindful enrollment is on a first-come first served basis.  


MY CHILD IS RESISTANT TO WEARING A MASK ALL DAY.  WHAT DO I DO?

It is imperative all members and staff wear masks at all times.  We understand this is inconvenient and (sometimes) uncomfortable.  There are a number of "fun" masks that can be purchased on Amazon if your child Is resistant to wearing a standard one.  Another option would be the utilization of a shield.  We are committed to ensuring the safety of all of our members.  Any member that cannot follow the guidelines will not allowed to participate in the program.
