Camps

Online Summer Programs

Back from proven success last summer!

ATMTC Academy is excited to continue our digital summer camps! These camps are specifically created for an online and screen-based medium with a live teaching artist to guide your child step-by-step through the process. All camps are held Monday–Friday on the dates and times listed. Each camp is tailored to the age we are serving, through time commitments, goals and subject material of the class.

I know doing theater camp by zoom is a bit of a learning experience, especially for nine year olds that have never done theater before. This week ended up being great for [my daughter].... Today was wonderful and it was great to see all the kids-- including [mine]-- happy and confident and it was clear how much they had enjoyed working with Randy, who was also great. [My daughter] struggles with self confidence, but it was clear how much this experience, in the end, really made her feel good about herself. When it was over today she said ‘she really liked it and wants to do it again next summer.’

  • At Glen Echo, only one group will be inside a facility at a time. All other groups will utilize outdoor spaces. 

Screening

  • Prior to students entering the camp environment each day, parents will need to certify verbally and/or through a form that the student or students and no one in their household have exhibited symptoms of COVID-19, been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, or are awaiting test results due to possible exposure in the household.  
  • Students will also need to have their temperature taken and recorded each day. Anyone with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher will not be allowed in the facility. 
  • Only students will be admitted into the facility. Parents and guardians will be required to do drop off/pick up outside.

Facemasks

  • All individuals on-site are required to wear masks at all times. Masks must cover the nose and mouth and be properly fitted. No individual will touch another individual’s mask in order to adjust it.

Social Distancing

  • All individuals are encouraged to maintain a minimum of 6 feet distance from each other at all times. 
  • There will be a designated space or containers for students to leave their belongings.

Hand Washing

  • There will be hand sanitizer available upon entrance into all facilities.
  • Students will be reminded by faculty to wash their hands prior to the beginning of each class and on break.

Cleaning

  • Facilities will be professionally cleaned at least twice a week.
  • Studios and the theatre will be left empty 15 – 30 minutes between group use to allow time for cleaning with approved disinfectants.

Food and Drink

  • All water fountains will be shut down. Individuals are encouraged to bring in a personal water bottle and label it. Bottles of water will be available for sale at the Rockville location for those that forget. 
  • Students in Glen Echo will eat outside (weather permitting) and spaced apart. If indoor eating is necessary (such as at the Rockville location), individuals will be assigned a designated spot at least 6 feet apart from any other individual.
