COVID-19 UPDATE: EYA is planning for in-person summer programs with some changes to keep you and your family safe, including small group sizes, outdoor activities only, 2-metre physical distancing, no sharing of tools or gloves, frequent hand-washing, and safely-prepared pre-packaged lunches. We’re carefully monitoring updates from health authorities – if it isn’t possible to run in-person programs, we will run virtual programs instead.
