Terms of Service
Policy: Students participating in the Virtual Bay Area Shakespeare Camps
are expected to meet the same standards of behavior as are required in their regular
home/school setting, including such standards as normally apply for online
learning environments. Minor behavioral infractions will be dealt with as
follows: first infraction: a warning from the teacher; second infraction: a
time-out with the camp manager and parents informed; third infraction: the
manager or camp director contacts parents again; fourth infraction: dismissal
from camp without a refund. Major infractions, such as online bullying,
prohibited imagery, or any behavior that makes the online learning environment
unsafe for others will result in immediate dismissal from camp without a
study & rehearsal environment: You agree to provide a safe physical environment
for your child, suitable for online learning, with minimal distractions. The
space should include an area clear of furniture and large enough for your child
to stretch, dance and move about safely; be acoustically isolated enough for your
child to sing, shout and speak at full voice without disturbing others in the household;
be free of pets, siblings and other potential distractions.
requirements: Your child will need an internet-enabled device (a computer,
ideally, or a tablet) with a working camera, speaker and microphone (headsets
are acceptable) and a stable connection to the internet throughout the camp day.
If possible, your child should also have access to a text-enabled mobile phone
for backup. Battery-operated devices should be charged overnight so they are at
full charge in the morning, and charging cables should be readily available
during the day in case they are needed.
Release: By agreeing to these terms, you give permission to have
photographs and/or video taken of your child during camp, and to use any such
photos/video for promotional purposes.
Policy: Transfers from one camp to another, on a space available basis, may
be made prior to the start of the session. If you transfer more than once, a
$25 administrative fee will be assessed for each additional change. There is a
$100 fee for cancellation prior to the start of camp. No refunds will be made
after the second day of camp.
