Playworks Summer Camp is for children who have completed kindergarten and are 12 years old or younger. Children at Playworks Summer Camp will be divided into three groups based on age:
Early Explorers are children going into first or second grade. Early Explorers go on three field trips each week to places like parks, pools, beaches, and museums.
They have fun planned activities for days that they are in the classroom, and utilize the different activities available at Dakotah! Sport and Fitness, such as the pool, gym, and bowling alley. They also participate in tours of Mazopiya, Mdewakanton Public Safety, and more. They visit and care for Wozupi Tribal Gardens once a week.
Explorers are children going into third or fourth grade. Explorers go to the same places as Early Explorers, along with field trips to parks, pools, beaches, museums, amusement parks, and more. Explorers have the opportunity to learn through exploration and activities about land and conservation.
Advanced Explorers are children going into fifth or sixth grade. Advanced Explorers go on four field trips each week to places like parks, pools, beaches, museums, and amusement parks. Advanced Explorers participate in the same activities as Early Explorers and Explorers, but they also go on even more fun field trips! Advanced Explorers also have a yearly lock-in party in our Atrium area, where they have pizza, play games, and watch a late-night movie. They also participate in community service projects.
Children going into seventh grade are welcome if they are still 12 years of age.
