    Subject:  Review from the 2020 Summer Camp Survey
    Comment:  Age of child: 12Comment: She did 2 separate weeks, 3-d computer animation and drawing for video games. She enjoyed then both. She learned new skills and in the animation class she discovered a new platform she didn’t know about. It’s hard at this age to find tech camps that can teach her something new and different but Yokey really delivers. The camp was well run, Very small because of covid.What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? I hoped my daughter would come and go on her own but we wound up taking her and picking her up because the corner of 4th and Atlantic can have some questionable people hanging around and she didn’t want to navigate that on her own. But that’s really all I would change.Anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it you'd like to add? They usually have groups of 20 but limited it to 10 and only had 5-6 kids when my daughter was there. They took temperatures and had the kids use hand sanitizer at the front door. Every kid got a computer or desk that was theirs for the week — well spaced. For the drawing the kids got their own Pack of art supplies that they took mom at the end of the week.They could take masks off if they wanted to once at their desks, some did some didn’t. But they had to put them on to get up And everyone more than when they went outside at lunchtime to run around.
