PlayEscapes

playPlayEscapes!

Keep your kids active this summer with supervised play activities that build creativity, imagination and positive self-image.

The program offers leader-facilitated play opportunities that develop and foster life skills, creativity, imagination and positive self-image, while also promoting a physical, active lifestyle. Self-directed play is the key to the PlayEscapes program. Children engage in play they select by themselves and are encouraged to explore and discover activities they enjoy. 

PlayEscapes welcomes children and youth of all abilities. Children entering Kindergarten must be 5 years old by December 31, 2019. Due to the high number of participants, we ask that individuals requiring one-on-one support/ assistance please bring an attendant/support person.
