Policy and Procedures

NEW POLICY: Our daily camp limit is 75 kids. Please register ahead, email, or call to reserve your space so you don’t get turned away!



If your child will not attend camp on a specific day for which he or she is registered, please notify the camp as soon as possible by calling 623-3904. Absences not reported within 48 hours during our summer camp will result in a loss of that camp day.  Absences due to unexpected illness or injury will result in a camp credit that can be used for another camp day.


Camp starts at 9:00 sharp! If you arrive after 9:15 your child will play in the lounge until we transition to our next activity. We have early care starting at 8:00 am for $10. If you sign your kids in before 8:45 am you will be charged $10. Parents will park in the parking lot on the East side of Playformance. There are also back in spaces on 7th but you need to put in a quarter. There is an entrance door on the South East side of the building that will be signed “Playformance” where camp staff will be waiting just inside each morning to greet parents and sign in campers. A parent or other authorized person must accompany campers to the designated camp entrance every morning and sign them in with the camp staff. After signing in, campers will put their belongings in a cubby and go right into free play.


Comfort is key. We are a barefoot facility. Please where shoes that are easy to slip on and off. Please don’t send tied tennis shoes if your child does not know how to tie their own shoe. (Socks ok).

Behavior Expectations

Good behavior is a key component to a successful camp experience. In an effort to provide all campers with a safe and fun-filled camp experience, it is important that all campers exhibit proper behavior and self-control. Campers are expected to take care of all the people and respect their coaches and fellow campers at all times. Inappropriate, disruptive and/or violent behavior while at camp will not be tolerated. Examples of inappropriate behavior include, but are not limited to, fighting, name-calling, bullying, foul language, arguing, and disrespectful or illegal actions.

Playformance reserves the right, upon notification of parents, to dismiss any student during any session for conduct that is deemed detrimental to the well-being of other students, staff, or to the overall operation of the camp.

Background Screening

All Playformance staff that will have one-on-one contact with minors have undergone and passed fingerprint background screening. This screening requires that fingerprints are submitted to the Arizona Department of Public Safety for state processing and to the UA Police Department to perform a background check through local law enforcement agencies. Any unscreened staff, volunteers or guests (i.e. special content experts, speakers at field trip locations) do not have unsupervised contact with campers.

Media Release

By signing your child up for camp you authorize Playformance to photograph and/or videotape your child for publicity purposes. Please note that these materials will not be sold or loaned and will be used only to promote the Playformance programs. If you do not want your child to be photographed, please notify camp staff.

Personal Items

Playformance makes every reasonable attempt to safeguard our campers’ possessions. However, we suggest that students leave personal items, especially electronics and toys, at home. Playformance is a no electronics camp. Hand held video games, cell phones, i pads, i touches are not allowed. If camp staff determines that the presence of these items is disruptive to the class, they will be held until the end of the day.

Please understand that Playformance cannot be held responsible for the loss, destruction, or theft of any personal items (i.e. clothing, book bags or purses, toys, games, electronic devices, cellphones, or money) your child may bring to camp.
