Even if you’re stuck at home this summer …you can still play at STAGES!
Our youngest friends have the biggest imaginations – and that’s why we are so excited to introduce our newest at-home summer camp program — the STAGES PlayBox – designed specifically for kids ages 4-6. NEW! There are now Summer PlayBox programs for ages 7-9, too! Click here for more information!
Sign up for your very own PlayBox! Each one-week, at-home camp adventure includes an official STAGES PlayBox shipped to your home – including a week’s worth of surprises customized for your child, and designed to support program themes. Each morning, they will connect with our teaching artists, open the PlayBox, and head off on an exciting, fun creative adventure together!
Our PlayBox adventurers are engaged with developmentally-appropriate story-making activities joyfully designed to meet our young friends exactly where they’re at with their developing attention spans, busy minds and bodies, and boundless creativity!
SCREEN TIME? IN THE SUMMER?
Connecting in our virtual classroom doesn’t mean staring at the screen for 60 minutes! Our dynamic teaching artists will lead activities designed to get students up, moving around, and utilizing the fun items inside the PlayBox to explore stories and look at their surroundings in a new way!
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
Your STAGES PlayBox will be customized for your student and delivered to your home before the program begins. Inside, you’ll find:
- A welcome letter and program overview for parents/caregivers.
- MORE BOXES! Inside your STAGES PlayBox there will be additional boxes/packages to be opened on each day of the program! Each of these boxes will include surprises such as pictures, maps, small collectible trinkets, personalized letters, costume accessories, easy DIY projects, or other age-appropriate, super-fun themed items selected or made to encourage self-discovery and creative play!
- A bonus Bravo Box to be opened on the final day – including a small gift and a certificate from STAGES to your student in celebration of their wonderful work!
Mindful of our impact on the planet, STAGES will make every effort to prioritize quality PlayBox items (including packaging) that are made from recycled/reused materials (or would themselves be recyclable/reusable)!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
STEP ONE: Register for your preferred STAGES PlayBox program(s)! Be sure to sign up before the registration deadline for your preferred program(s), so STAGES has plenty of time to customize and ship your PlayBox before your program begins.
STEP TWO: Soon after registration has been processed, you will receive a short survey from STAGES asking you to provide a few additional fun facts about your student. This information will be used to customize the packaging, personalization, and contents of your student’s STAGES PlayBox.
STEP THREE: Before the progam begins, a parent or caregiver should open the box and read the welcome and overview packet. This packet includes an inventory list of what should be in the box – please review this an let STAGES know right away if anything is missing so we can be sure your student has everything they need before the program begins.
STEP FOUR: On the first day of the program, help your student connect to the virtual classroom for your STAGES PlayBox class (this link will be sent via email to you before the camp week begins). The STAGES PlayBox team will lead a one-hour, engaging, interactive program, which includes opening and creating with the items inside the “First Day” package from the PlayBox. Repeat this step each morning for the duration of your STAGES PlayBox program!
