Covid-19 Precautions and Guidelines:
SHOWSTOPPERS is taking measures to keep all performers and staff safe while enjoying the same fun we've always shared! The camper's option to wear a mask is up to each individual family. Social distancing will be encouraged as well as sanitization and hand washing prior to snack breaks.
We do ask that all campers who are feeling under the weather, stay home and do not attend for the day. The SHOWSTOPPERS Staff will absolutely be doing all we can to ensure the safety of all campers.
