The state of Missouri has issued specific mandates and guidelines for public events and the venues where these events take place. Ranken Technical College intends to uphold those guidelines for our student population and all visitors at all three of our locations. As these mandates require social distancing, limited sharing of materials and equipment, face masks, food service restrictions, constant disinfecting of equipment and shared spaces, and more, we feel compelled to inform registrants for the 2020 Summer Adventure Academies, that many of our summer camps scheduled for July 13-17 and July 20-24, 2020 are being cancelled.
