Why Playformance?

10 reasons to send your kids to PLAYFORMANCE

  1. Children at PLAYFORMANCE spend their day being physically active – as others spend so much time these days inside and mostly sitting down, our camp provides a wonderful opportunity to move and connect. Running, swimming, jumping, crawling, climbing! PLAYFORMANCE is action!
  2. Children will experience challenges, successes, and become more confident – PLAYFORMANCE helps children build self-confidence and self-esteem by removing the kind of academic, athletic and social competition that shapes their lives at school. With its non-competitive activities and diverse opportunities to succeed, PLAYFORMANCE is a real boost for young people. There’s accomplishment every day. Our camp teaches kids that they CAN.
  3. To gain resiliency – The kind of encouragement and nurturing kids receive at PLAYFORMANCE provides a rich environment to endure setbacks, try new (and thereby maybe a little frightening) things, and see that improvement comes when you give something another try. PLAYFORMANCE helps conquer fears.
  4. To unplug from technology – When kids take a break from TV, cell phones, and the Internet, they rediscover their creative powers and engage the real world— real people, real activities, and real emotions. They realize, there’s always plenty to do. Camp is real!
  5. Develop life-long skills – Camps provide the right instruction, equipment and facilities for kids to enhance their sports abilities, their artistic talents, and their adventure skills. The sheer variety of activities offered at camp, makes it easy for kids to discover and develop what they like to do. Camp expands every child’s abilities.
  6. Grow more independent – Camp is the perfect place for kids to practice making decisions for themselves without parents and teachers guiding every move. Managing their daily choices in the safe, caring environment of camp, children welcome this as a freedom to blossom in new directions. Camp helps kids develop who they are.
  7. Have free time for unstructured play – Free from the overly-structured, overly-scheduled routines of home and school, life at camp gives children much needed free time to just play. Camp is a slice of carefree living where kids can relax, laugh, and be silly all day long. At camp we play!
  8. Learn social skills – Coming to camp means joining a close-knit community where everyone must agree to cooperate and respect each other. When they play together all day with others, kids resolve disagreements, and see firsthand the importance of sincere communication. Camp builds teamwork.
  9. Campers are more likely to succeed in college because they have had successful experiences away from home. Camp helps build confidence and leadership skills.
  10. Make true friends – Camp is the place where kids make their very best friends. Free from the social expectations pressuring them at school, camp encourages kids to relax and make friends easily. All the fun at camp draws everyone together— singing, laughing, talking, playing, doing almost everything together. Everyday, camp creates friendships.
