Hello Camp of Witchcraft & Wizardry Families:
I hope this email finds you healthy and happy. I have been putting off this email. I love camp so much. But this summer, we have to move it online. Even if the State allows camps to operate this summer, and we could meet the guidelines that would allow us to open, we would be at 1/3 capacity, in masks and not playing quidditch or creating art as a team. Upon weighing the pros and cons, we decided that the best alternative is an online alternative.
Instead, we will be offering 2 weeks of half day (9am-noon) zoom Camp of Witchcraft and Wizardry: July 13-17 and July 20-24. It will be an exciting camp where participants will be sorted and then move into smaller breakout rooms with their houses. Sometimes they will have an activity with two houses, sometimes with one, and sometimes all of us will meet together. Each day we will have a creative writing project, an art project, a theater project, a house cup competition project, we will have spell practice and trivia. Art kits will be available for local pick-up or delivery the Saturday before camp begins, and can be shipped if need be for an additional cost. While it will undoubtedly be different from Witchcraft and Wizardry camp of the past years, we will keep the magic alive.
The cost of online camp is $400 a week. We have credited your account. These credits can be used for the online camp, camp next summer, or any Theater O classes. We hope your child will attend our online Camp of Witchcraft & Wizardry. You can go here and register for the online camp, or you can email me and let me know what you would like to do and I will register you on the backend.
Regarding refunds, for obvious reasons, we prefer crediting your accounts. However, we recognize that may be difficult for some families. If you need for us to refund this summer's tuition, we will. Just send me an email.
I'm sad not to have Harry Potter camp in person, but we will have fun, make magic and be creative as we always do.
As Albus Percvial Wulfric Brian Dumbledore says, "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." Here's to the light.
