COVID-19 and Facial Coverings

All of our programs are fully outdoors in a space that allows for social distancing. Facial coverings and masks are optional for families that attend. We are also limiting the size of our programs to make it easier to social distance. At all of our programs we provide hand sanitizer or a hand washing station to encourage safe practices. If you or your child are feeling any cold symptoms, we ask that you not attend the program. Please reach out via email to inform us and we will handle this on a case by case basis.

Allergies/Medications: Please inform JDA in writing of any allergies or medications that your child needs during the camp. Your child must be able to administer medication to themselves. JDA staff is not able to provide or administer any medication to your child. All medication, including anti-hystamines, pain relievers, etc. must be labeled with your child's name in a plastic bag and checked in with a JDA staff member upon arrival.

Behavior: Participants are expected to honor the Dragonfly Academy’s Code of Conduct. We reserve the right to dismiss a participant whose behaviour is out of line with this Code of Conduct in a way that puts themselves or others at risk. No refund will be issued for dismissals.

Special Needs: We do our very best to provide a positive environment for all our participants. If a participant requires special accommodations, please elaborate on these as much as possible in their application. Our team will be in touch to further discuss how we can best provide support.
