Lavner Education Partners with True North Medical Group on Health & Safety.

Summer 2022 Premier Safety Plan

As a camp accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), we have always taken strong and responsible measures to make sure that our camps meet the high bar established by the ACA. The safety of our camp community is a top priority, and at the core of our mission. We have invested a lot of time and resources into creating a Covid-19 safety plan that will help us operate our in-person camp locations and minimize safety risks during these times. With reasonable social distancing measures in place, some of our camps will look a bit different from previous years. However, we are still committed to providing a high quality experience that is educational, safe, and fun. Please check your camp location page on our website for any updates to the camp schedule, and visit this page prior to the start of your child’s camp week as our Covid-19 Safety Plan will be updated as everything evolves.

Limited Enrollment/Small Groups

Cleaning and Disinfecting Protocols

-Despite growing evidence that surfaces are not contributing significantly to the spread of Covid-19, our staff will pro-actively wipe down communal activity areas and equipment
-Cleaning supplies and alcohol-based hand sanitizer will be available in camp spaces

Use of Private School/University Facilities

-Classrooms and camp spaces designed for educational experiences at high quality locations

Vaccination Requirements For Camp

Virtual Options

Our World-Leading Virtual Summer Tech Camps will take place from June 6th to August 26th, 2022. Campers may enroll for 1+ weeks. Lavner Education invented the concept of Virtual Tech Camps to provide families with a solution that allowed their children to learn STEM, build skills, make friends, and have fun, all while giving parents time during the day to focus on work, other responsibilities, or just take a break. In leveraging our deep expertise in STEM, and refining the way that we teach it online to our campers, we have created a new way to learn that is safe, convenient, and incredibly effective. Additionally, we have expanded our virtual offerings to include year-round STEM learning, so our students can learn safely with us all year. Make sure to check out our Virtual Tech Camps, year-round courses, 1-on-1 tutoring academy, tournaments, birthday parties, and more, all taught with live instruction.

At our camp locations, virtual tech camps, and year-round courses, we continue to drive the education industry forward by creating, refining, and delivering programs that maximize learning and fun. There’s truly something for everybody, and we welcome you to join us. We look forward to seeing you in person, online, or both!
