Coronavirus Updates

I’ve already paid for Growing Minds Preschool, Den Club, Camp or any other Community Education program, and it was canceled or postponed.  Will I get a refund or credit?
Community Education will automatically issue credits to those that have paid for services or events that have been canceled.   These credits will be issued for any day a student registered but did not attend the Spring Break Camp, Growing Minds Preschool students for 3/16-3/20, and Den Club students from 3/23/20-4/3/20.  
Future credits will be issued to families that opt not to attend Growing Minds Preschool for the remainder of the school closure period, families do not have to do anything.

Extended Spring Camp
Spring Camp will reopen on Tuesday, March 17, and services will be extended on a weekly basis as needed.   The Extended Spring Camp will run from 6AM-6PM for throughout the school closure period.  Families can elect to attend on a week-to-week basis.  Space is limited and priority is given to Health Care Professionals, First Responders, and Military personnel.  REGISTER TODAY

Health screenings for students and staff will take place upon entry into the facility and again twice a day throughout camp.  Students and staff exhibiting any symptoms will be sent home and will require medical clearance before returning.  Additional cleaning/sanitizing procedures will be followed, and class sizes will be reduced to ensure space for social distancing. 

The Vista Center for the Arts
All remaining shows have been postponed.  All tickets remain valid and have been transferred to the new show dates.  Please visit to check the new dates and times for performances.  Ticket holders that cannot make the new show date may request a credit for a future performance, donate their tickets back to The Vista, or seek a refund.  For all questions and inquiries please email us at [email protected]
