Dear Austin Families,
If children are forced to stay home for the remainder of the school year, but it is safe to hold camps this summer, they will be more needed than ever!
Children will have been cooped up, faces in screens, socially isolated…so Neuron Garage and other camps, which provide a screen detox and rich opportunities for creativity and collaboration have the potential to do so much good.
Our team has closely monitored recent mandates from the CDC and City of Austin, and will continue to do so as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves. At this time, Neuron Garage is moving forward with its planned summer programming beginning in June. Should this change based on new information or guidance, we will be sure to update all of our registered families and post updates to this page.
Creating a safe, fun, and enriching environment for children in the summer is why we exist. So, we are continuing to hire and train incredible team members and make enhancements to our programming. As we prepare for camp this summer, we will continue monitoring CDC and local recommendations, and will implement new policies and procedures as needed to help keep all of our families and staff safe.
As part of our updated standard protocols this summer, we will implement the following:
- Enhanced cleaning and sanitation processes at every location.
- Screening processes for staff and children to ensure that no one is coming to camp with any preliminary symptoms.
- Minimizing classroom crowding — each classroom accommodates no more than 25 campers and each campus is limited to 50 total Neuron Garage campers.
As parents of young children ourselves, we realize that it is difficult, if not impossible to try and make plans for this upcoming summer. To make things easier, we want to remind you that we offer worry-free booking. You can reserve your child a space or add weeks today with a $20 deposit and relax, knowing that you have until two weeks before the start of your camps week(s) to pay the balance or request a full refund. IF WE ARE UNABLE TO HOLD CAMP, WE WILL AUTOMATICALLY ISSUE FULL REFUNDS, INCLUDING ANY DEPOSITS, TO IMPACTED FAMILIES.
Our team is here to support you. If you have any questions, please contact us at Kaylie.Reed@NeuronGarage.com or (512) 593-5393.
We can’t wait to spend a safe, healthy, joyful, enriching summer with your children…even if we have to wait until 2021. In the meantime, our fingers are crossed that we will have that opportunity to be part of the healing this summer.
