How do campers get the art supplies? (In-person/Virtual)
Manga will provide the main supplies.
When proceedeing with the in-person format, the ssupplies will be handed on-site.
For the virtual format, a curbside pick-up supplies will be scheduled each Sunday before the start of the upcoming camp week. Our welcome message sent to families after registration, will include a note about the pick-up. We will be following the CDC guidelines.

What do campers need to wear for dance and art ?
Wear comfortable clothes and tennis shoes for dance outside; old clothes for the arts.. We are using paints and markers. We provide old T-shirts to protect campers' clothes as well.
What to expect on a typical day?
There will be one group. The day is structured for 45 minutes each for the drum and dance activities. The art and language will run for 1:20 minutes.
Are there breaks during camp?
Yes. The drum and dance will give 5 minutes break during each activity; while the art component will provide 10 minutes break before the activity. These breaks are structured to allow campers to have a snack or rest. 5 minutes pause from drum to dance and 10 minutes from dance to arts will be set to allow a smooth transition into the next activity.
Do campers need supervision? ( Virtual)
Campers do not require parents' supervision. We are only asking for parents to set up the painting supplies for the young ones, and provide a covered working space against spilling or markers stains.
How do campers get back online after break or in case of loss connection? (Virtual)
We will be using Zoom.com
On each day, before 9:00 A.M., a message will be sent to invite campers to join the camp. Another one will follow with the login credentials to have in hand to get back to camp after break, or if a loss of connection happens.
Will there be a refund if campers can't continue?
