Covid-19 Special Living Spanish Camp Announcement to our parents. 

Dear Learnika Families,

We hope you are keeping healthy and safe on these very challenging days. Before informing you about Learnika reopening news, Learnika staff, Tony, and I would like to express our gratitude for all your messages supporting us over the past three months. We miss our community, your children, and their happy spirit. We would like to let you know that we are going to do everything in our hands to provide a very safe environment for everybody at Learnika during camp hours while offering a very fun, creative, and full of the energy program for our campers. I will be one of the camp instructors ready to welcome you and your child at Learnika’s main entrance door next Monday, June 8th!!

We are thrilled to begin reopening Learnika, welcoming our summer camp students for our first three-week session, June 8 – 26. We have modified our weekly sessions to three weeks to improve safety for our campers. The maximum number of campers is 12. When signing up, parents must decide whether they are comfortable bringing their child to our camp for a period of three weeks. Summer camp sessions:

1. June 8 – 26

2. July 6 – 24

3. July 27 – August 7th or 14 depending on the school starting date for the next school year.

Parents must monitor the daily health of their family and child who is coming to our camp to ensure the health and safety of everyone. We are trying our best to provide a positive, fun, and safe environment within the latest Santa Clara County Health guidelines for summer camps.

Each week will feature a unique theme with fun-filled activities to promote physical movement, safe social interaction, leadership building, personal growth, and creativity.

Campers will be divided into two groups with their own activities according to their age groups. Staff in charge of a group will also stay in the same group for the three-week period.

Please review the important information below about our summer program plans and what to expect when you return to Learnika.

Learnika will open next Monday, June 8th. Camp session hours will be from 9 am to 2:30 pm, there will be no after-care service as of now.

– For drop off, Parents will park their car in front of Learnika and stay inside until a Learnika instructor approaches to check your child´s temperature, and ask the daily health questions (*see below) and make sure your child wears their facemask. We will also make sure your child has all their belongings inside a paper bag. Campers will be allow to bring a bottle of water, lunch, snacks, sunblock cream, sweater and facemask(s). The paper bag will be thrown away at the end of each day. One campers group will enter Learnika from the main front door (office door)  and the other group will enter through the last door (kitchen door).

– No child or staff will be permitted at camp with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher, or any symptoms related to COVID-19.

– Upon arrival, teachers will explain safety guidelines and rules to campers.

– Fun activities related to the weekly theme will be provided under the constant supervision of the assigned teacher.
