LPCA hosts socially distanced summer day camps

LAKE PLACID — The Lake Placid Center for the Arts is offering several in-person, socially distanced visual and performing arts camps this summer.

Camps have been reimagined to satisfy all state and federal requirements.

Class sizes will be restricted to 10 or fewer students, and activities will ensure a 6-foot distance between classmates. State-required health screenings as well as hygiene and cleaning protocols will provide the foundation for teachers and students to have fun summer sessions that protect everyone’s health and safety.

Additional information and frequently asked questions can be found online at www.lakeplacidarts.org/summer-camp-faq. Director of Education and Outreach Tara Palen is also available at tara@lakeplacidarts.org to talk through any concerns not addressed on the camp FAQ page.
