Summer Camp

Together!

Are you looking to elevate your organization's summer programming? PopUpPlay partners with schools and organizations around the country to build excellent camps. Campers spend time building friendships, learning new skills and reinforcing academic content. Activities can take place inside or outside and we expect to keep young people moving and playing all day long. 

We provide curricula, materials, training, coaching, technical assistance and sometimes staffing to districts of all sizes. Click 'Book Your Classroom Event' to start a planning conversation.  

Below are a few examples of PopUpPlay camp themes. 

Fantastic Forts 

Explore all the ways to design a hideout. We'll build miniature and life-sized forts, pillow forts and glow forts and even get started on a living fort. 

 

All PopUpPlay camps include traditional camp activities and crafts as well as theme-based projects.  

Scientific Artist 

Explore the science of art.  Projects will change each day and focus on a set of artsy materials and scientific concepts.  These may include designing your own: 

  • Scribble bot (a coloring robot)

  • Gravity powered or air powered car, and 

  • Pendulum painting
