Will you be interested and available to teach camp remotely, via Zoom, if we are unable to host camp in person due to COVID-19? *
Remote Teaching Location Preference
If we need to host camps via Zoom, due to COVID-19, instructors will be responsible for using their own devices (computer, cell phone, camera, etc) and internet connection to administer their camp, unless prior arrangements have been made for the instructor to teach remote classes from the Kennedy Heights Arts Center’s Distance Learning Studio. Please indicate if you would prefer to teach from home or from the KHAC Distance Learning Studio, which includes an overhead camera set-up, a webcam, and a live video switcher.
If we need to host camps online due to COVID-19, we recommend instructors incorporate the following tips to create a high-quality online camp:
Instructors are strongly encouraged to incorporate principles of the REALM System into their camps as a way to establish norms and rituals for distance learning which support young students socially & emotionally.

RITUAL: Start and end with opening and closing rituals. Rituals provide a grounded and predictable form for connection, much like a nightly campfire or song at camp.

ENERGIZE: Pausing to be "off-task" for a few minutes through stretching, dancing, or another physical exercise can encourage more on-task behavior, not less, during an online activity/lesson.

APPRECIATION and gratitude: "Gratitude and practices of appreciation have been shown to physiologically increase our sense of well-being. Being grateful can become a contagious mindset and will help connect your [campers] to each other," Toben says.

LIGHTEN: She also suggests that offering playful interactions in the face of the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic can increase motivation and help your group bond together.

MINDFULNESS: Practicing mindfulness — being present in the moment and aware of one’s emotions, sensations, and insights — "can help people feel more at peace, become less stressed, and shift perspective," Toben says. w

While the task of creating a quality online/virtual camp program may seem daunting, don’t let the change of venue overwhelm you. Use the many resources at your disposal and look for ways to translate what you already know works to the virtual world. And, remember, the bulk of your campers will probably feel quite at home in the online format.
Please describe how you would adapt your camp to an abbreviated remote format hosted via Zoom. *
Note: Remote camps, hosted via Zoom will be shorter in duration than in-person camps. (1hour for young children and up to 2 hours for older children.) While shorter in duration, a remote camp format would require instructors to assemble individual materials kits for each camper 1 week prior to the start of their camp.
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
