Socially Distanced Summer Camps at Lake Placid Center for the Arts

This summer, The Lake Placid Center for the Arts LPCA will be offering a variety of in-person, socially distant visual and performing arts summer camps.

They have taken care to ensure that the camps follow New York States, the CDC’s, and the Department of Health’s reopening guidelines. The class sizes will hold a maximum of 10 students, and all activities that the children partake in will be six feet from one another. State required health screenings and hygiene and cleaning protocols will be in effect and provide a foundation for both students and teachers to enjoy their summer activities while protecting the health of everyone involved.

Additional information can be found at their website: www.lakeplacidarts.org/summer-camp-faq. You may also contact the Director of Education and Outreach, Tara Palen, at [email protected].
