Safety Protocols

Our goal is to protect patrons, visitors, employees, staff, artists, and volunteers, as well as to mitigate the potential for the spread of the virus in our community. We continue to practice enhanced cleaning procedures and students who are exhibiting any signs of illness will be asked not to attend. For the 2022 Summer Camp season, The Arts Center will follow the CDC recommendations on masking for Beaufort County in accordance with the CDC’s U.S. COVID-19 Community Levels by County map.

As of 3/1/22 masking is not required but please know that this situation is fluid and subject to change.

Half-day campers should bring a water bottle and snack. Visual art campers should wear old clothing and/or bring a smock to protect their clothes. Theatre campers should bring a lunch.
