What steps is Play-Well taking to ensure the safety of LEGO camp participants during the COVID-19 pandemic?

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Play-Well recognizes that our in-person summer camps will need to be run with modifications. The following are precautions that we have implemented, and we will be following individual guidelines of the partner locations which host our programs as well as any applicable changes to the recommendations from local governments and the CDC.

For our in-person programs this summer, all Play-Well instructors will wear face masks, wash hands/sanitize often (and encourage students to do so), wipe down high contact surfaces, and set up their classroom to help maintain social distancing. Students will also have separate, pre-sorted and disinfected materials to use exclusively throughout the program. We will also be adjusting the maximum number of kids enrolled in each program to ensure these steps are adhered to, and will cancel class if staff is feeling ill.
