Summer Adventure Play Program!
Summer Programming in 2021 is full, but you can still join our waitlist! Safety guidelines will be followed.
New to KOOP? Welcome!
TLDR: We prioritize play and support children in their freely chosen pursuits.
What is Summer Adventure Play with KOOP?
An immersive, engaging, child- directed day camp where each child can have their own, individualized version of the "best camp ever!" where trained adult playworkers support and respect children while prioritizing 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, splash in water, 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.

Because of the huge financial impact Covid-19 had on our tiny non-profit, we're asking for you to consider donating directly to our More Play Scholarship Fund to offer spots to those facing financial hardships. Scholarships are given on an as-needed basis, as we have the funds to cover our costs, so your donations are deeply appreciated! Help your neighbors gain access to this program and grow, heal and play through summer 2021!
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..."
