AIA’S SUMMER PLAYCATION
HOST YOUR OWN BACKYARD SUMMER CAMP FOR KIDS IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Playcation? Yes, you heard us right!
Athletes in Action has re-imagined the staycation! This summer, we’re going to help you bring the day camp experience straight to your communities backyard!
THE BACKYARD SUMMER CAMP EXPERIENCE IS HERE
Summer day camp delivered to your neighbourhood & church backyard.
Think of Summer Playcation like a television show.
We’ve created two weeks of unique content, five episodes each. The first set of videos are centred around soccer drills and activities from an explicitly Christian perspective, while the second week is based on basketball. You will notice that the stories from the coaches in week 2 are carefully constructed so that they might be appropriate for a non-Christian audience.
Summer Playcation is designed to work by participating in one episode per day. In this way, it still feels like day camp. Summer Playcation isn’t meant to be digested all in one sitting. Although it can be watched continuously, it’s designed with natural stopping points for human interaction. Like the classic caveat from a toy commercial: “some assembly is required”. Summer Playcation was designed as both a resource and a tool for further engagement with your campers!
As we created Summer Playcation, our hope was that we would be able to take each day’s theme beyond the video and into conversations with hosts, parents, peers and friends.
TEN DAYS WORTH OF CONTENT
Soccer and basketball content will be released and available for your use on Monday, July 20th, 2020. This means, you have access to the content as of July 20th, but can choose to host your camp during the dates that work best for you. You will receive unlimited access to the content and can use it as many times as you would like.
Camps can be run from your own church, gym, field, or backyard, get creative! The times and location of where and when you choose to host the camp is entirely up to you.
