Age Groups

Camps are for children ages 5-10 years old. Children spend a small part of the day together in a big group, and most of the day is spent divided into two groups – a group of younger children, and a group of older children. This allows us to tailor activities in a way that is age appropriate. 

Activities

Our camps are an immersive experience centered mostly around dance, music, art and yoga. Each day, children spend approximately 2 hours dancing (spread out through the day). The rest of the day is spent doing art, yoga, and of course playing and eating!

Food

A morning snack is provided to all children at no additional cost. A hot lunch is offered for an additional fee. Children can also bring lunch from home (these lunches cannot be heated on site before serving).

An afternoon snack is provided for children enrolled in extended care, at no additional cost.

Sample Menu

Food Allergies: Snacks are nut and egg free. However, we cannot guarantee a food allergen-free environment as children are allowed to bring snacks and lunch from home. We have several safety checks in place to ensure children with allergies are kept safe. Our team is trained to administer emergency medication (e.g. EpiPen). We work with each child’s parents to understand reactions, severity, and other details about a child’s allergy before the camp so we are fully prepared to ensure the safety of each child. Please contact us if you would like additional details about how we handle food allergies.

Extended Care

Extended care is offered from 3pm-6pm on Monday-Thursday, and 3pm-4pm on Friday. Late pick up is charged at $5/minute. 
We have a teacher from an elementary school in the Fremont Unified School District who leads our Extended Care Program. We have plenty of group and individual activities for the children! This is a screen-free Extended Care Program. We also include a visit to the park across the street each day. When children are at the park, they wear a yellow safety vest so we can identify them quickly and easily, and we have a number of other safety checks in place while we are offsite.

Communication

We understand and respect the importance of being in touch when it comes to your child’s care. Here are some of the ways we achieve this:

  • Prior to camp week, information is sent to parents about preparing for camp week
  • Parents of children with allergies are contacted and details are exchanged about the needs of each child individually
  • Parents are given a cell phone number to call if there is a need to reach camp staff; someone will pick up your call and talk to you
  • We also monitor email during the day, and our response time is usually within a few hours
  • For those children who may need some extra help adjusting to camp – we proactively collaborate with parents so we can achieve this transition
  • Extended Care: We send real-time messages about our departure time to the park, as well as our arrival time back at the studio so that parents can plan their pickups accordingly

Safety

The safety and health of children are of utmost importance to us. Here are some of the ways in which we ensure that our camps are a safe place for children:

  • Ratios: We have a 1:5 ratio of staff to children
  • Digital Check In / Check Out: Our check in and check out process leverages technology and private access codes for parents
  • Multiple Roster Checks: We account for each child several times during the day
  • Parents are given a cell phone number to call if there is a need to reach camp staff; someone will pick up your call and talk to you
  • Emergency Preparedness: Prior to camp week, parents receive information about meeting points in case of an emergency
  • Food Allergies: We have a tightly controlled and communicated process about children with food allergies
  • Extended Care: The program is run by a Fremont Unified School District elementary school teacher who brings a high level of quality care to our camps! Also, children wear yellow safety vests so we can identify them easily and efficiently when we are offsite at a daily visit to the park across the street

Team

The on-site camp team consists of Mona Sampath Khan and Amrita Shastri, as well as an Assistant Camp Manager, a group of seasoned dance instructors and a team of high school camp counselors. Our instructors have extensive experience teaching children in dance class and dance camps settings. With over a decade of summer camp experience, the team has handled sold-out camps with over fifty kids, dancing with them throughout the week and gearing them up for the end-of-week presentation – all while making sure the kids have the time of their lives in a fun, supportive and safe environment.

We also collaborate with renowned vocal coaches and established Bay Area choreographers like Anna Gonzalez and Lauren Benjamin, who specialize in various dance genres. Art and yoga are conducted by teachers with expertise in these areas of learning and teaching. These incredible teachers bring a whole new dimension to the camps and lend their broad range of expertise to making the dance camps cutting-edge and truly unforgettable.

Great job Team! Pinakin loved it and I'm hoping the interest in dance you guys kindled in him will become his passion. Thanks for taking awesome care of him!

My daughter and I have been MKC students for the past couple of years. The quality we have seen with the classes and shows continues with the summer camps also. I am very pleased to see the dedication on part of the staff and teachers to make the whole camp experience a lot of fun as well as a great learning experience for kids.
