FLEXIBLE CHECK-IN

We’re offering a flexible time frame for your convenience, every day of camp. We won’t start the activities until 9:30 in the morning; you’re welcome to drop off as early as 8:30 a.m. for your camper to come and have a bit of free time before the camp day begins. Be sure to bring lunch if you aren’t signed up for our fresh lunch option!

FLEXIBLE CHECK-OUT

Our program wraps up at 2:30 p.m. every day. You’re welcome to drop in anytime between then and 3:00 p.m. to pick up your child. If someone other than the parent is coming to pick up, you’ll need to let us know ahead of time for our security. If you need time past 3:00 p.m., we offer Extended Care as an add-on.

EXTENDED CARE
(2:30-5:30 p.m.)

Need some extra time, trains running late or stuck in traffic? We offer Extended Care as an add-on until 5:30 p.m. Attending campers will have an opportunity to hang out in our space and play games or continue project work on their own.

Price: $50 per day, availability is limited per day

SCREEN BREAKS AND ACTIVITIES

Campers take several screen breaks throughout the Camp day as a chance to reset, move around, and socialize! Challenge Activities are kinetic, group-oriented games campers play for a few minutes to get to know each other and the instructors in a non-learning setting.

CIRCLE TIME

Every day begins and ends with a circle. It’s an opportunity for the campers to ready, plan, reflect, and socialize to start and end the day. Your child will always have an opportunity to center him or herself before getting into the exciting activities of the day, and collect and reflect at the end. This is our first and last opportunity for us to ensure the entire group is following Rule 1: Have Fun.

OUTSIDE TIME

We love playing outside! Weather permitting, we head to a local playground around midday to blow off some steam and play together (yes, staff plays too!). Due to COVID, we ensure that everyone is utilizing hand sanitizer and maintaining their social distance from other kids at the playground. On rainy or particularly unseasonal days, we’ll instead work together on some non-learning, non-screen indoor activities.

FREE TIME/GAMING

Playing computer games isn’t the main part of our campl formula. However, there are some scenarios where we will give campers a few minutes to test games or play on our private servers. Campers who want to experience a longer Free Time are welcome to add on the Extended Care option, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. after regular pick-up.

HEALTHY SNACKS (INCLUDED)

Two snacks per day are included with your camp purchase! We carefully select healthy, delicious snacks for our campers to nibble on during these social, 15-minute screen breaks. All snacks are Gluten & Nut Free. If your camper has a specific dietary restriction we ask parents to pack a separate snack that they prefer and can safely have.

FRESH CATERED LUNCH
(OPTIONAL ADD-ON)

We partner with our local small businesses to provide food services to offer our campers an optional Lunch add-on! Each day of a camp week will feature a different yummy lunch for participating campers. Campers are welcome to pack their own lunches as well. Please note that while we make our best efforts to make our lunch and snacks healthy and available to all, we do not operate a full allergen-free facility. Please feel free to send separate food items with your camper if it’s at all a concern.

No, Voxel Academy was founded in the unfortunate aftermath of Pixel Academy’s closure due to the Coronavirus. We are a collection of instructors who have the same principles and experience from years at Pixel Academy. We have over 8 years of experience as a team working with many local schools and have partnered with The Sterling School and others. Our founders and staff weren’t privy to customer issues, financial obligations, or other issues with The Pixel Academy’s clientele. Voxel Academy is a new company in name and has no legal connection to The Pixel Academy.
