nline Summer Play Groups are comprehensive programs that focus on the development of the social, communication and peer play competencies of all the children participating. The Society offers two types of Online Play Groups programs they are; Unbox & Play for children ages 6 through 10, and Role-Playing Groups for youths ages 11 to 5.

As part of these programs, we offer the following services:

  • Four, 60 to 90-minute sessions offered Mondays thru Thursdays (session times range by age of children participating)
  • Virtual transition meeting with Master Guide prior to the program start
  • Children receive pre-teaching materials to support their understanding of the play before the online sessions
  • Children receive a box of play materials associated with the play themes
  • Youths participating in the Role-Playing Groups receive character cards and visual materials prior to the start of the sessions
  • Session notes and data on baseline skills are recorded daily
  • A written camp report is provided to the family
