ZoomDance Spring Break Camp

not running in 2021

 

ZoomDance Summer Camp

HAPPENING!

We will be running camp this year! More details coming soon, email us if you want to be updated.

 

Dates: July 12 – September 3 (dates not set in stone yet)
Ages: 3-7 years
Hours: program 9-3, extra care 8:30-5pm
Location: South Philly

 

Below are descriptions of our pre-pandemic program and daily schedules. HOWEVER this year we are working to make the following adjustments: 

  • We will 100% be following or exceeding all CDC and school guidelines for health & safety & cleaning. We will provide KN95 masks to all teachers daily. 
  • We want to move to a new location with an outdoor space accessible all the time so we can lead classes and have lunch outdoors.
  • “Pod” the group: we will have a much smaller group and ask parents to commit to a minimum of 1 week, up to 4 weeks, so we do not have cross-over between families. Teachers will also be podded with the group (as in, we’ll have 3 consistent teachers there each day, not a rotating staff.)
  • We will not be able to take drop-in kids or last-minute registrations this year.
  • The cost of camp will increase due to the restrictions we are under. Scholarships will also be available as we continue our commitment to giving access to any family whose child is excited to be part of our program!

 

Program

At ZoomDance Camp there’s plenty of space for all kids to expend energy, express themselves and find something new they love.

Mornings are spent in the studio exploring a variety of different movement classes, group activities, art projects, dancing and performing. Each day will feature ZoomDance performance workshops and games centered The Lorax.

Afternoons we have picnic-style lunch in the studio, some quiet and reading time, playground trips and library field trips. We’ll finish the day with big group movement games, an obstacle course, or community circle time.

Our low counselor-to-child ratio means plenty of personalized attention and a great environment for young children and even for a first camp or drop-off experience. Parents receive daily photos and activity updates.

Staff

At ZoomDance camp, you are getting top-notch professionals working with your kids all day every day. All our teachers are trained extensively and have years working in early childhood education. Our counselors assisting the teachers are also chosen carefully and trained thoroughly. We value a respectful, empathetic connection with the children so that everyone feels included and important. Plus everyone on staff is also a professional artist, so you can expect high-quality instruction, creativity, and attuned energy.
