Campers Arrive On Campus For Summers @ Lausanne

Summertime on the Lausanne campus officially kicked off this week as Summers @ Lausanne opened their doors on Monday, July 6.

Camps this week include Musical Theatre Bootcamp (Jr.), Mythical Creatures, Magic Tree House, Jojo Siwa Dance, 3D Studio Art, Indoor Olympics, Advanced Basketball, Mad Scientist, Math ACT Prep and Game Show Extravaganza. 

Due to health regulations, there have also been some changes made to Summers @ Lausanne Some of those changes include:

  • Camp hours have been adjusted to 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and there is no morning care or aftercare.
  • Lunch will not be provided and we ask that campers bring their own lunch and adhere to nut-free campus policy.
  • Only students, faculty, and staff are allowed in buildings unless an emergency situation requires parents to enter buildings.
  • Masks are worn by all faculty and staff throughout the day and campers are required to wear masks as they transition across campus. They are also worn when students are face to face or when they are not seated 6 feet apart inside.

"We were all a little apprehensive about how the summer would look in the current environment, but hearing the kids' laughter and just feeling the happy energy of camp has made all the preparations worth it!" Director, Summer Programs, Lausanne 360 Meg Cline said. 

With the start of summer camps, Lausanne moves into Phase 2 of its plan to reopen campus

"Having kids back on campus has allowed us to see the safety measures we've put in place like wearing masks and social distancing in action," shared Drew Smith, a member of Lausanne's Covid-19 Task Force. "Our biggest concern was that the rules would get in the way of the campers having a great experience. Thankfully, the campers are having a great time, and the kids are doing a fantastic job following directions and staying safe!"

You can register for camps online at lausanne360.com. You can also click the image below for a look at the schedule for the remainder of the summer. As the COVID-19 situation is an ongoing, fluid crisis, Summers@Lausanne staff have kept plans fluid as well. If a new health directive is issued or the situation changes, Lausanne is prepared to adjust, and even cancel camps and issue refunds if needed. They're updating families signed up for future camps of any changes through weekly emails.

Camp leaders are also operating to ensure the health and safety of our students and our staff. Please understand that despite all the precautions and safety protocols, we cannot eliminate all risk, but we can do our best to follow suggested guidelines from the CDC and Department of Health and Education while also keeping true to the Summers @ Lausanne experience.
