KOOP Summer Adventure Play Camp!
New to KOOP? Welcome! 2020 registration opens in January 2020.
Read below for what to expect!
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 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 today to give your kids their best camp ever!

WHAT KIDS SAY
I feel so free when I'm KOOP-playing! I can just be me!""
"I like KOOP camp best because ... we can just play."
After a week of KOOP Camp my child plays outside and finds what to do for hours with no help from me. LOVE IT!
