Hey PlayWerx Families, just passing along some information on the upcoming Carlsbad Family Fun Ride, which will be held on September 7, from 10am to 4pm. The event includes a short bike ride around the Village and a healthy lifestyle expo. The ride is suitable for families with young kids and is a great way for you parents to ease yourselves back in to riding bike.

This FREE event will feature live music all day, food, games, expo, bike rodeo, and fitness course, plus more fun things for families to hang around and enjoy. The line up of activities include:

- Bike Rodeo by Ride Cyclery - SKLZ Fitness Course - Ga Ga Court by the Ecke YMCA - Bike Sprint competition - Frisbee Golf by Discovering Disc Golf - Interactive Music Making by NAMM - FitKids class by La Costa Resort and Spa

The featured Family Fun Ride event starts at Holiday Park in Carlsbad Village, looping out through the Village before returning to Holiday Park. All participants will be given a map with 5 destinations (plus a bonus one). Those destinations are places required to stop to pick up your wristbands. The main 5 stops will take you on an approximately 2-mile circuit of Carlsbad Village. A 6th bonus wristband will add another 8 miles. After collecting all 5 (or 6) wristbands, you will return to the park where you will be dealt a hand. The best 5-card hand wins! For those with 6 cards, you use your 5 best cards. In the case of ties, there will be one card playoffs and the highest card wins (A, K, Q, ...).

Please note: the Family Fun Ride is NOT a race. Fastest time wins nothing.

Grand prize includes 2 Haro BMX bikes for 2 lucky winners!

Hey PlayWerx Families! 

We hope you filled your summer by hanging out with family and friends, visiting new destinations, and enjoying your favorite activities! 

And even though San Diego offers many cool ways to stay busy for free - beaches, parks, hiking trails, concerts in the parks - we know that keeping the kids entertained can get expensive.  

To help out, we offer many ways to save on admission to PlayWerx:

Tot Pass: For kids 3 years and under: $35 for 6 visits and 2 cups of our gourmet coffee for you. Can be used for multiple children.

Value Pass: For kids 4 years and older: $65 for 8 visits and 2 cups of our gourmet coffee for you. Can be used for multiple children.

Sibling Discount: To make it easier for the whole family to play together, we offer $2 off each sibling admission. 

Military Discount: To honor our men and women in service, we offer $1 off admission to the children of all active and retired members of the military.

Please note that these discounts cannot be used with birthday parties or other discounts. 

These savings are good all year and the passes don’t expire! Remember – moms and dads always play for free at PlayWerx.

 

Surviving Summer

For kids and moms, summer promises endless, blissful days of sleeping in, catching waves at the beach and playing with friends. And for the first couple of weeks or so, the break from the over-scheduled school year is bliss. But eventually bliss morphs into stress. The kids are home eating and messing things up all day. Boredom and restlessness set in when friends are unavailable because they are vacationing or at camp. The burden of coming up with fun ideas and curriculum rests solely on you.

How will you balance all that free time with some structure and keep the kids out of mischief? When will you squeeze in time for yourself? Here's where Camp PlayWerx comes to your rescue.

At our all-day camps, your kids will enjoy hours of active exploration with playmates their same age. We enhance  the camp experience with daily art projects and music twice a week. Healthy lunches, snacks and beverages are included in the price of camp, so you'll have one less meal to prepare each day and fewer messes to clean up.

During your temporary escape from the cycle of cook, clean and entertain, you can focus your energy on yourself. Read a book, take on a special project, learn to surf, or share grown-up time with your friends. Build a little extra time into your day by carpooling to camp with another family.

If you feel guilty about dropping your kids off at camp, remember, they need an occasional break from you too. You'll come away from your brief hiatus with renewed energy, and you'll be in great shape to savor the rest of summer - with kids in tow!

Life Is Better Under The Stars

Looking to do something that's a bit different this summer? Seeking adventure, scenery and escape? Perhaps you've considered camping before, but the thought of sleeping on the hard ground, eating hotdogs, and foregoing indoor plumbing stops you cold. Now there's a way to enjoy an outdoor vacation in comfort and style - glamping.

Glamping (glamour camping) is a form of camping that combines the classic tent experience with luxury amenities. High-ceilinged canvas-covered tents or yurts rest on wooden platforms and feature comfy beds with full linens and down comforters, reading lamps, casual seating, ensuite bathrooms, private decks, and personal fire pits. Many resorts even offer chef-catered meals prepared with locally sourced ingredients.

You're probably familiar with high-end camping as staple on African safaris, but the trend has made its way around the world to Europe and now the United States. In California, you can stay at luxury camp grounds in some of the world's most stunning natural settings including mountains, secluded beaches, and next to rivers, lakes and preserves.

Situated on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean just north of Santa Barbara, El Capitan campgrounds offers deluxe safari tents in various sizes and configurations. A tent with 2 double beds and indulgent bedding rents for $155 per night. At Mount Madonna in the majestic Santa Cruz Mountain Range, a 16' yurt with a wrap-around deck, sleeps six and goes for $50 per night during peak season. The yurts are furnished with beds and mattresses, but you have to bring your own sleeping bags. And a tent bungalow at the eco-friendly Costanoa Lodge and Camp outside of quaint Pescadero rents for as low as $90 per night. 

The most glamorous properties around the world cost thousands of dollars for a multi-day stay and often include unlimited horseback riding, gourmet meals and a host of other active pursuits.  

But whether you spend $50 per night or $1,000, your children will love playing outside all day - exploring tidepools, swimming, cycling, horseback riding, maybe even fishing and hiking. At dark, you can bond around the campfire and share stories.  When the kids finally get sleepy, you can tuck them into a comfy clean bed and let them fall asleep to the sweet sounds of nature.

This summer, find some time to relax reconnect and restore.

We bring art to life through daily arts and crafts activities, and treat campers to musical adventures through dance, song and storytelling twice a week.

The Best Kids Party Ever

// posted by Joanne Coval on Thursday, September 15, 2011

Memories of our early childhood can be really fuzzy. They are sporadic flashes of moments, both joyous and sorrowful, that defined who we were and the type of people we would become. Every parent wants to create the happiest memories possible for their children, and one of the best ways to form these memories is to create events that break the chain of normal activity. This can come in the form vacations, visits from family, or a kid’s favorite, a birthday party.

There are a lot of different options to choose from when it comes to a kid’s party, but a party at Playwerx can be fun on a whole other level. Joy for children often exists solely in the physical realm. Some of our greatest early memories come from activities like jumping, running, climbing trees and exploring the environment. Playwerx allows for that level of activity in a fun and safe indoor place where kids can just act like kids.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember as an adult, but some of the greatest times we have as kids come from exploring structurally complicated places. Things like funhouses, haunted houses, jungle gyms and tree covered creeks remain some of the most fun places to explore. Playwerx has created a similar type of environment where kids at the party can explore mazes, slides and ball pits to their hearts content and form memories that will last a lifetime.

 

Back-to-School!

Kids in the communities of Carlsbad, San Marcos, Oceanside, Vista and other San Diego neighborhoods are back at school. During the first couple of weeks parents are often filled with a sense of relief and a bit of anxiety as well. Children feel this excitement and stress, too.

The first weeks of school can be tough as routines are put back in place; kids adjust to early bed times, rushed mornings and packed schedules.

Amidst all of these changes, remember to include some downtime as well. Give your kids a reward and a break from the daily schedule by including some playtime and an opportunity to burn off energy they may not have had a chance to do during the school day.

Playwerx Carlsbad is the perfect venue for some after-school fun and exercise while at the same time providing downtime for Mom or Dad. Parents can sit on a leather couch, sip some great coffee, browse grown-up magazines, and access free WIFI while their kids run through our multi-level play structure.

As a back to school special, PlayWerx will have “Happy Hour in September”. Visit us during the last business hour of any day during the month of September and your admission is 50% off. That means you can come Tues-Friday from 5-6pm, Saturday from 6-7pm or Sunday from 5-6pm for 50% off regular admission price!
