Are masks required while at camp?

How does your staff plan to implement social distancing at camp?
Camper numbers are capped at 12 per location. Each camper is assigned their own gaming station that is a minimum of 6ft from the nearest child. Off-screen activities are completed using the same 6ft minimum requirement. In addition, camp staff actively work to make sure campers do not break social distancing guidelines during free play and off-screen activities.

Our staff has implemented new cleaning procedures to help keep campers and customers safe, including thorough cleaning of all gaming equipment, door handles, and more!
Will my child need to bring their own gaming equipment?
All gaming equipment will be provided at camp. This includes headsets, keyboards, mice, and controllers. There is no need to bring any equipment, but you are more than welcome to bring your own if you prefer!
Will lunch be served at camp?
There will be a break for lunch each day, and campers are expected to bring lunch which does not require refrigeration in air-tight containers.
Do you offer early drop off and late pick up?
This summer there will not be an early drop off option, but parents may request that campers remain at Localhost after camp on a case-by-case basis and subject to Localhost staff availability, to continue playing games until their parent/guardian arrives to pick them up.
Can my child leave camp to walk into the adjoined Five Below?
No, campers may not enter into adjacent Five Below stores during camp hours.
