What you need to know about Fantastic Magic Camp and COVID-19

 

Updated June 13, 2020

Texas is implementing a gradual reopening of the state (“Phase 2”), as of Friday, May 1st.* You may be wondering how this will affect Fantastic Magic Camp’s summer program.

We have made arrangements to stay within, or have better than, the state and CDC recommended guidelines. For the first few weeks (at least) of Magic Camp’s summer sessions, here are some of the ways we intend to do so:

  • We will never have more than 25 campers in one location

  • To maximize space, we will hold sessions both at the Journey IFC and First Cumberland Presbyterian, a few minutes from each other

  • Campers will not be traveling between locations

  • Each class will be made up of groups of ten or fewer campers

  • The common areas, where we watch magic shows, eat lunch, and other activities, will be large enough for ample space between campers

Additionally, we will implement these important requirements:

  • Campers will be encouraged to bring a personal facial covering to camp every day

  • Staff members and counselors will be required to wear facial coverings whenever possible.

  • Staff members and counselors will be evaluated with a 12-step personal health screening at the beginning of every day

  • Everyone who enters the building will have their temperature checked with a no-touch scanner

  • We are asking all families to participate in curbside drop-off and pick-up

Because we were into our spring session when the city required businesses to close, we already have experience with safety precautions that we will continue to implement, including (but not limited to):

  • We will have four separate hand washing stations

  • Campers will be required to wash their hands after each activity

  • Our counselor interns will be cleaning and wiping down surfaces throughout the day, well beyond our usual high standards

 

*It is our expectation that circumstances will require us to implement last minute changes, many of which may be mandated by the city or state, as the summer goes on. We will keep you posted on those changes, as necessary.
