WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Our Policies

NEEDED DEVICES. A computer or other mobile device is needed in order to access Zoom. Ipads, tablets, or cell phones may also be used. If you have more than one child enrolled and they are in different age groups, each child will need access to his or her own device. Computers or Ipads are recommended. Cell phones limit the child’s ability to see the screen and fully interact with the teachers.

RECORDINGS & DRESS.  Each session will be recorded. Please be mindful of the camera, your dress, your child’s dress, and any language or sound that may be picked up by the camera. We always stress modest dress. If your children have attended KCC in the past, we encourage them to wear their camp shirts during class.

If your child misses a class, we will make every effort to email the recording within 24-hours. The videos usually require some editing so please be patient with our team.

 

QUIET BACKGROUND. In order to ensure that each camper will be able to hear and participate fully, we ask that parents do your best to limit any background noise. We recommend finding a quiet place to set-up for your camper’s sessions. If you have reliable headphones or earbuds with a microphone, this is also recommended to reduce potential background noise.
