POPCCE stands for the Power of Play and Cultural Creative Expression. We are a six-week summer camp for children ages 4 to 10 where creative expression, culture, and learning happen simultaneously. POPCCE is the answer to summer learning loss. We capitalize on children’s summer growth and development and make learning fun!
Campers will learn the lost art of board game – but not only playing them. POPCCE Innovative Players (7 to 10 year olds) will develop a POPCCE board game and present it to parents and friends along with the summer’s culturally moral-based play production on the last day of camp. POPCCE Imaginative Players (4 to 6 year olds) will participate in the play and share their summer play experiences as well.
Staff members are professionals in the fields of early childhood and elementary education as well as the performing arts. We collaborate to provide a well-structured, orderly environment in which our campers learn to appreciate each other’s strengths while learning to work on challenges.
