Each program will have limited participants. AHS' website describes the steps they are taking to keep kids and families safe:

"We will be following CDC guidelines. To ensure safety, all visitors entering AHS property, including buildings and parking lots, are required to wear masks at all times without exception. Instructors will also be temperature tested prior to the start of the program, and all visitors entering an AHS building will be subject to a temperature screening. To protect the health of your family and our staff, we will maintain social distancing during the program."

AHS has also reopened their scout program and birthday parties, along with their Summer Camps for 6 - 17-year-olds. Click here for those details.
