New Ways To Make Friends

Why are we doing this? While everyone is doing their part to help stop the spread of COVID-19, a common challenge especially with working parents is their kids are missing elements of socialization with friends. Our team is experimenting with limited-time activities on different days of the week to provide unsupervised space for kids to just be kids, where they can have fun and socialize while still at home. We encourage your kids to join activities that interest them, make new friends, and have fun!
A small ask we have from you is to give the teams running the activies some feedback via the feedback app: let them know what works and doesn't work, and how to do improve.

Thank you for providing this programming. It has provided a welcome break in the day for my daughter and has kept her engaged. We are particularly happy with the basketball programming and have seen a huge improvement in her skills.
My son wasn't real interested in taking the Fortnite class as he knew you wouldn't play the game, but he was surprised at what he learned. AND...he won his first battle yesterday, so that was a plus!! Thank you!!

Being home with the kiddos + both parents working 40+ hours makes it difficult to keep them entertained! I would love to see this free program continue throughout the school year (especially "new" University of Chicago math or whatever crazy stuff they teach in middle schools these days).
I can't thank you enough for planning this summer camp. All our summer camp plans were cancelled this summer. Poor kiddo is an only child, so spends his days gaming, watching YouTube videos, or hanging with 40-somethings! The past few weeks of camp have been a highlight. He even invited friends from school to join, so they do the sessions "together." Both my hubby and I were able to go to work yesterday and leave him alone. We'd mapped out his schedule for the day as a family, prepped for cooking a recipe. I was able to go to work for a few hours and knew he was fine (my kid is 12, so old enough to be alone). I'm actually sorry that school is starting, and he won't be able to continue with summer camp. Thank you!!!!

The biggest concern with distance learning is the lack of social connections. If we extend COA, it will solve one of our biggest challenges as parents - quality socialization. From my personal experience these camp classes fulfilled many of our family’s needs. It’s safe (from virus and predators), virtual, fun, social, personalized interaction and educational. GREAT TEACHERS! Benefits for PwC working parents: Great filler between the kids regular school work - Productive use of the child’s time if they are waiting for their parent to finish a meeting - Global diversity exposure to kids across the world - Variety class content and times - Playbacks are a fabulous resource for MORE healthy interactions through the rest of the week.
We really appreciate the COA classes. They have been an excellent resource for both myself and my daughter. The quality is excellent, it's great for her to see hundreds of other kids excited about what she likes. COA has truly helped her build her confidence to participate in school virtually. Thank you so much!

I want to give my kids fun activities and opporunities for social engagement, which have been severely limited by the pandemic. It also helps me to work effectively when they have something interesting to do.
The classes looked great. Grandchildren spending too much time on line just playing games. Looking for some structure
