Parent involvement/commitment to this camp is a fair estimate of 10% of your time, and that is mostly on the front end where you will need to download software and project files. Parent involvement includes: 

  • Pre-Camp Set-up– Check hardware requirements, download software, project files, etc. PRIOR to the first day of camp. 
  • Daily Class Set-up/Close– Think of it as a virtual drop-off and pick-up, making certain your student is successfully logged in to each live class session, closes out completely at end of day, and has completed any necessary downloads required for next day activities.  
  • Technical Troubleshooting on your end.


  • Waiting Room will be enabled.The instructor will admit students into the room promptly at the start of class.  
  • Students will only be permitted into the classroom if their FIRST LAST name match the name on file (per registration).
  • Student Audio and Video will be OFF upon entrance to allow students to congregate and settle.
  • Zoom Meeting will be locked once all students are in the classroom; this protects the class from unregistered attendees.
  • The Password sent is the same for each day. Password will be changed only if security has been compromised. 


  • Students will remain muted during class, unless otherwise prompted, to minimize background noise at home.
  • Students video must remain ON during all class sessions, unless otherwise noted.  
  • Do not record our classes, student or parents are not allowed to record any of our classes per student’s privacy and security purpose.
