Players Series - PreK - 1st Grade

Kids escape into fantastic realms this summer through great stories, creative movement and games galore!

Campers celebrate with a movie of their original scenes, music videos and games, premiering online the Monday after camp.

Camp meets at 232 Carroll Street, and includes visits to Carroll Park. Themes for Summer 2024 include Camp Encanto; Frozen Adventures; Matilda, James & Charlie; Trolls Adventures; and Magic Tree House.

“We love that you focused on the Wizard of Oz - it gave her such a love for the story and we love that we now have a video of the end project which she watches all the time. We also love that you seemed to allow the kids to really be creative and free and make up their own characters and riff on the original story. All in all, she LOVED every minute of your camp!”
Jessica Mazzeo
“Child's Play was great for our son. He was a very apprehensive to be left alone at first, but the staff figured him out and paid very close attention to his particular needs. They were also very accommodating to his various food allergies. Overall really great experience. Our son still sings songs he learned at Child's Play and had such a good time there.”
Clark Shaw
“Our daughter still sings and does the routines from Mary Poppins, which is so cute. We loved the live accompanist and the energy of the teachers. She really looked forward to going every day.”
