COVID-19 Health and Safety Information
Mask policy (all locations)
The health and safety of our campers and staff remains Thinkery’s top priority. Thinkery’s 2022 camps will observe the same masking policy as our General Admission visitors. This policy is updated weekly to correspond to the latest Community Levels rating for Travis County.
During “Low” and “Medium” periods (as defined by the CDC), masks are recommended but are not required. Masks will be required only during periods where Austin/Travis County is at “High” levels of COVID risk.
The county-level ratings are updated every Thursday at 7pm CT. Our mask policy will be updated weekly to correspond to the latest Community Levels rating for Travis County. If the Thursday update changes the Travis County rating (from green to yellow, for example), Thinkery will move to the corresponding masking policy on Friday morning.

While there is no 100% effective way to prevent illnesses, we’re taking ongoing steps to make our in-person camps as clean and safe a learning environment as possible. There are additional steps that YOU can take to help us provide a clean, safe, and healthy environment.
If your child is sick, please keep them at home.
We’ll be doing daily temperature checks and health screenings for all campers, and any camper showing signs of illness will be sent home. To save yourself an extra trip, it’s best to keep sick campers at home.
Work with your camper ahead of time to practice good hygiene.
Help your camper get familiar with important concepts like:
- Frequent washing of hands with soap and water for at least 15-20 seconds each time.
- Avoid touching your eyes and face as much as possible.
- Maintain physical distance from other campers as much as possible.
- Cover your mouth and nose if you have to sneeze or cough. If you’re not wearing a mask, remember to cough and sneeze into your elbow (the “vampire sneeze“) or into a tissue, not into your hand.
