Due to Covid-19,
all summer programming in June & July is cancelled.
KOOP Summer Adventure Play Camp!
NO KOOP CAMP IN SUMMER 2020, but we're leaving our description so you can see what we do.
New to KOOP? Welcome!
TLDR: We prioritize play and support children in their pursuits.
What is Summer Adventure Play Camp?
An immersive, engaging, child- directed camp where each child can have their own, individualized version of the "best camp ever!" where trained adults support and respect children and prioritize play.
Imagine a place full of interesting materials where children are in charge of their time, what they do and how they do it. Some children may want to build forts, roll tires down a hill or create elaborate costumes for theater. Other children want to run, swim, or create big games with lots of friends. Still others play in the mud or build robots or open a business. Now imagine all of that happening at once.
This is KOOP Adventure Play!
Camps are staffed by trained playworkers who work to gently support children's play, create inviting environments where kids feel free and keep everyone safe. Playworkers respect children, believe the best in them and prioritize their play.
Of course we know that play is infinitely important and impactful for children which is why we put so much effort into creating environments ripe for all play types and welcoming to children of all interests.
You won't find a daily adult-led activity at this camp-- these camps are structured by the children and their play, which means each week is fresh and new and customizable based on the childs' interests!
Child-led free play is disappearing for children today and KOOP is here to provide that opportunity to children and youth.
Sign up next year to give your kids their best camp ever!
All summer camps have been cancelled for summer 2020. We are so sad, but ultimately want everyone to remain safe.
We'll see you next summer and until then,
Until then, we're encouraging folks to donate to our More Play Scholarship Fund to offer more programming next year.
Kids feel the difference here:
"We don't have to do anything but and can be whatever we want. I love KOOP Camp...."
"I like KOOP camp best because ... we can just play."
"KOOP camp makes me feel free..."
