Summer is a popular time for dance studios to offer camps for younger dancers. When offering camps, it is important that you are prepared, organized, and have a curriculum/schedule to guarantee your campers are busy and engaged throughout the entirety of the experience.
Information should be relayed to your staff, and supplies should be organized to guarantee a successful event. This may include:
- Detailed Schedule/Curriculum Expectations
- Craft Supplies
- Snack Supplies
- Themed Music
Prior to the camp, it is also helpful to send parents a camp information sheet that contains information similar to the following:
SUMMER CAMP INFORMATION SHEET
Payment: If you have not yet paid the balance of your camp tuition, you may pay at the beginning of each camp session. The studio accepts cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
Drop-Off/Pick-Up: The studio will open 15 minutes prior to the camp’s start time, but students will not be supervised until the start time of the camp. For pick-up, please be prompt.
Attire: For camp sessions, students may wear dance attire (leotard, skirts, etc.) or clothing that is comfortable for movement. Students are encouraged to bring their ballet shoes; if you do not have a pair of ballet shoes, socks or barefeet are acceptable, too.
Snack: Please pack a snack for your child for each day of camp. The studio will have back-up snacks available for students that forget to pack a snack. The studio serves fruit snacks or goldfish and lemonade or fruit punch. If you have allergy concerns, please let us know in advance.
Mini-Performance: Our camps will offer an informal performance at the end of the week. If your camp is doing a mini-performance you will be notified of the day/time/specifics.
Thank you for choosing our studio for your child’s Summer Camp!
Be organized, prepared, and offer an event that children will love. The best way to increase your camp (and studio) enrollment is to create an event and experience that your dancers (and their parents) will remember, discuss, and enjoy!
