Build-your-own “Quaranteam” camp!

Due to the nature of our camps and facilities, we have decided to cancel our traditional camps for the remainder of the summer. However, we do have another option for you!

Introducing the build-your-own “Quaranteam” camp! If you can get together with friends that you know and feel comfortable interacting with, and the kids in your party total 5 or more, we can customize a week-long, half-day camp exclusively for your Quaranteam at $185 per child. 

How it works:

  • Choose one of the following options:
    • Piano Camp
    • Ukulele Camp
    • Guitar Camp
    • Songwriting Camp (Ages 8 and up)
    • Music and Play Camp (variety of instruments)
  • Choose your 3-hour window
    • 9 am – 12 pm
    • 1 pm – 4 pm
  • Call or email us to schedule!

Things to know:

  • Notasium staff will spend approximately 30-minutes cleaning the play space and bathrooms after each camp session using EPA/CDC approved products known to kill Covid-19. 
  • In Cary, only one bounce house will be open so we can clean everything within 30-minutes. 
  • Adults will be asked to wear a mask while interacting with staff or other customers. 
  • Notasium staff will be wearing masks at all times and will have undergone the same general health questions and temperature screening prior to opening. 
  • There may be one other family in the building, but they will not be in the same room/area as the camp kids. 
  • You will need to read and sign the COVID waiver available online in order for your child to participate

If you have any additional questions or are ready to book, just give us a call at 919-230-9321 or email us here.

Quaranteam Play!!!

Indoor Play Durham, NC
Our first Quaranteam Play!!!

We have given a great deal of thought as to how and when we could start to re-open the play space in a safe way for our staff, our customers, and our community. We have decided to begin opening on a limited basis, starting with what we call Quaranteam Play – 1 exclusive hour of play in our play space for you and a few families of your choosing for $60. 

What exactly is a “Quaranteam?”

  • Members of the same household that have been staying away from everyone but each other
  • Members of 2 or more different households that have been staying away from everyone else except each other to the extent that they feel comfortable going to each other’s houses and letting their kids play together

How it works:

  • Read and sign the COVID waiver online
  • Register & pay online to reserve your 1-hour slot at least 12 hours ahead of time
  • Share the hour with a few other families that you feel safe with as long as the group is a total of 10 people or less with at least 1 adult that can supervise the whole group. If your group goes over 10, it will be $8 for each additional person with a maximum of 20 people.
  • Come to Notasium up to 5-minutes before your appointment time so that you can do the following BEFORE playing:
    • Have all adults in the party put on a mask or face covering before entering
    • Answer a few screening questions as suggested by the CDC
    • Have your temperature taken by our staff with a contactless digital infrared thermometer 
  • Play for one hour – masks are required while inside Notasium

Things to know:

  • Notasium staff will spend approximately 30-minutes cleaning the play space and bathrooms after each play session using EPA/CDC approved products known to kill Covid-19. 
  • In Cary, only one bounce house will be open so we can clean everything within 30-minutes. 
  • Adults and kids – ages 2 and up – will be required to wear a mask while inside Notasium.
  • Notasium staff will be wearing masks at all times and will have undergone the same general health questions and temperature screening prior to opening. 
  • In Cary, the family restroom will be the only restroom available

Additional charges:

Snacks and drinks can be purchased for additional charges. If you do not have a card on file, you may swipe to purchase those at a safe distance from our staff.

Performances or 30-minute music classes can be purchased for your group for an additional $45

Introducing Semi-Open Play!

Things to do with kids Covid

After much consideration of our state’s new safety guidelines and what seems sensible for our musical play space, we are going to start offering a new kind of Semi-Open Play next week! What does that mean exactly? Here are the specifics, (which are subject to change):

  • 2-hour play sessions, 2 per week in addition to our already popular “Quarenteam” Plays
  • Limited access for no more than 20 people by appointment only 
  • Pre-registration online prior to coming
  • $8 per person (adults and children 12 months and older)
  • Under 1-year-olds are $4 but FREE when accompanying an older sibling
  • Full cleaning after each play session, along with periodic cleanings during
  • UVC Air purifiers will be operating in each karaoke room
  • Upon entering the building, all family members must wear masks, answer screening questions, have their temperatures checked, and sanitize their hands 
  • No drinking fountain access – B.Y.O.B.!

At least one Notasioneer will be in the play space to remind little Notemakers of these additional rules to minimize the risk of potential spread: (and we might need some help from their grown-ups to enforce them!)

  • All adults and kids ages 2 and older must wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth while inside the building. No exceptions. Neck gaiters, masks with valves or bandanas are not acceptable. We will have disposable masks for those that need them.
  • Masks may be removed temporarily only when eating or drinking in the Cafe area at least 6 feet from others. 
  • Everyone must try and remain 3 to 6 feet apart from one another. 
  • Bounce houses will be limited to a maximum of 4 kids at a time
  • The guitar slide will be limited to 2 kids at the top at one time
  • Only 1 family at a time in a karaoke room
  • Anyone who violates these rules repeatedly will be asked to take a break outside the play space, or asked to leave

Schedule

To start, we will have just 3 available times in each location beginning the week of March 1st:

Cary: Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 – 11am and Thursdays from 4pm-6pm. Register here!

Durham: Tuesdays and Fridays from 9 – 11am and Mondays from 3:30 – 5:30pm Register here!

Members
