About Our Camps

We offer camps for preschoolers and elementary students throughout the year. We use improv as our launching-off point for connecting with ourselves and each other, creative expression, playing together and being silly. We balance outdoor boisterous adventures with reflective indoor time; physical activities with reading, storytelling and art projects; free play with structured activities.

Weather details: We are a nature-based experience, so please err on the side of over-dressing. Your child's safety is our priority, so in making our decisions about outdoor activities we reference this chart and our experience as educators and parents.

Our experience with Camp Create Play Explore was 100% positive and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone. The atmosphere was fun, accepting and loving and my son enjoyed it immensely. He keeps asking when he gets to go back to “his camp” again. Thank you for a great experience for our first-time camper!
