SUMMER CAMPS 2023

Peers Play Summer Camps!

Peers Play will offer two pathways for social groups this summer!

 

Option 1:  weekly groups that meet once a week for 1.25 hours, the same format as the groups during the school year

 

Option 2: Themed summer camps that run for 2 hours a day, Monday-Thursday

 

Since this formatting is different than the rest of the year, here are some key details to note:

1. In order to hold your child's spot for the 2023-2024 school year, you must sign up for EITHER a weekly summer group or at least

2 summer camps. Email Sara or Gusty-Lee if you're interested in doing a combination of both options.

2. We will not offer missed group waivers for summer. If you know that you will be out of town a lot, we recommend signing up for summer camps rather than a weekly group. 

3. If you have a scholarship, you may sign up for a weekly group or use your scholarship for two of our weeklong summer camps. 

4. You are allowed to sign your child up for as many summer camps as you'd like!

5. If you are a new Peers Play family - please note that we do not accept new families who ONLY want summer camps. We run a year round program with a school year schedule and a summer schedule, so we will also share our 2023-24 school year schedule with you so that your child can continue services with us after summer is over. 

6. Email Sara (sarajmolina@gmail.com) or Gusty-Lee (glboulware@gmail.com) to secure your spots in camps/groups before they fill up! 

7. If you aren't sure which group to sign your child up for based on their age, we recommend that you discuss with us to be sure. The Pre-K group comprises mostly 3-5 year olds, and the elementary age group comprises mostly 5-7 year olds. Some kids entering kindergarten would benefit from the Pre-K group and some may benefit more from the Elementary group - it's best to chat with Sara or Gusty-Lee to determine what's best for your child.
