Virtual Learning – Resource Page

 

Welcome to our Virtual Learning Page. Below is a list of helpful “need to know” information for our online camps and classes:

Welcome Letters: You will receive a welcome email four to five days prior to the start of the first day of your session. This email will contain links to the program(s) you will need to download and install on your device prior to the start of the session (if applicable), the link and password to connect to your course, and additional information for your child’s experience. If you have any questions about any of the information in this email, please email us as soon as possible at info@lavnercamps.com.

Camp Times: All of our programming times are listed in Eastern Time.

Video Conferencing: We will use Zoom at camp. Please make sure your device and internet connection are suitable for Zoom.

Computer & Devices:  On the description page for each camp/course, we list the types of electronic devices needed to participate. This information can vary by camp/course, so please check your these descriptions. If you have any questions, please email us at least one week prior to the start of your session. 

User Account: We ask that you create a unique user account on your device for use during your sessions with us.

Zoom Access: Your child is only permitted to use their first name or a nickname on Zoom. If you would like your child to use a nickname, please add this to his/her online registration form in your account. The legal guardian of the child must sign the child onto Zoom each day. The child is not allowed to share his or her personal information with camp staff or other campers during camp.

Clear Open Space: Please make sure your child is always in a clear open space that is free from any hazard or harm when participating in our online programs.

Virtual Backgrounds: Depending on your device, you may have the option of using a virtual background on Zoom during our programs. A virtual background will allow everyone to see your child, but can block out the background behind them. To add a virtual background, click on the “up arrow” next to stop video, and select “Choose Virtual Background.” This can also be accessed from the Zoom settings. Please note, all backgrounds must be appropriate (G rated).

Special Events at Camp: Special events/activities take place at our camps each day for 15-20 minutes. These activities give campers a chance to take a break and participate in fun group games, team building exercises, and more with other campers and staff. Some of our special events include things like talent shows, show & tell (pets allowed!), Dance Offs, Scavenger Hunts, Charades, Lavner Jeopardy, and our Friday Tech Showcase.

Camp Mascot: You and/or your child may see Hero, our camp mascot, and other “friends” jump in and out of camp. They will be at camp to add excitement, ask quiz questions related to the subject matter at camp, and more. Make sure to give them a wave!

Consent Form: If you have not already signed the consent form for the program your child is attending, you must sign it prior to the start of your child’s first camp week. If we do not have it on file for you, one of our team members will ask you to sign it prior to the start of camp. The form can be accessed by logging in to your account. If you do not sign the form, but still allow your child to participate, this is considered implied consent to all of the terms and conditions listed on our consent form and our website.

IT Questions: While it is each family’s responsibility to make sure they have a sufficient device, internet connection, and have installed any necessary programs prior to camp/class, if you feel that you require assistance, please contact us at least one week prior to the start of your child’s camp/class, and we will do our best to assist you.

Additional Children: Only children signed up for camp/class may attend. If there are additional children you may want to sign up, please let us know, we are happy to help.

Terms & Conditions: By having your child attend camp/class, you expressly agree to all of the terms & conditions on our website. If you have any questions, please let us know prior to the start of your child’s camp/class.

Amendments: Please note, we may make amendments to this page, so feel free to check back leading up to and during your child’s sessions with us.


Logistics & Child/Parent Participation:

•  Here are some helpful tips for sign in each day:

•  Make sure your child’s first name or nickname (only) appears on the Zoom screen.  This will help us get your child into their camp/class breakout room in a timely fashion.
•  Sign in to your Zoom call 15 minutes early. Camp sessions take place Monday to Friday, Noon to 3pm EST. We will get you in as quickly as possible.
•  Download the required software downloaded prior to sign in! For camp, if you need additional assistance on Monday, our Tech Team is ready and waiting to help 30 minutes prior to camp and available by appointment before class. Sign in early and we will be sure to check in with each family to see if assistance is needed.
•  Late additions and changes to our registration lists happen! It may take us a few minutes to locate where your child needs to be. We appreciate your patience and will get your child to the correct spot as soon as we can.

•  Encourage your child to ask for help if his or her computer isn’t cooperating. We have a fabulous and very knowledgeable IT team who can help with technical problems that arise.

•  Our goal is to provide a child-directed learning experience, where our campers/students communicate directly with their instructors. This means that questions and participation should be through our campers/students. As parents, if you would like to ask a question or make a suggestion, please contact our camp/class director directly so they can help.

We look forward to helping our campers and students continue to learn, grow, and have fun!
