The camp is capped at 20 students to facilitate individualized attention and to ensure camper safety.

To cap off the week, families and ancestral ghosts descend upon Atlantic Cirque at 3 p.m. on Friday to take in the Winter White show wherein students show off their newly minted skills before receiving the keys to their own clown cars as a camp graduation present.

Staffed by attentive and expertly trained instructors, each Gymboree outpost adheres to a curriculum of activities designed by experts to foster the development of children’s’ cognitive, physical, and social skills through structured play and close readings of Goodnight Moon.

La La Land Indoor Playground enchants future adults with an open floor filled with slides, tunnels, and toys and surrounded by a panoramic mural depicting a magical forest. During open-play hours, particularly feisty tots can get their wiggles out in the Excitement Zone, a netted enclosure where scampering legs can bounce on a small, cushy trampoline, and the space beneath a rainbow-patterned slide provides a concealed venue for under-the-table popsicle exchanges. Tiny conveyances and wobbling hobbyhorses pepper the playroom in the form of dogs, dinosaurs, and tricycles, as their Lilliputian riders emulate stoic cowboys or swashbuckling knights on their way to La La Land's medieval castle façade.
With ample seating, an open space with few blind spots, and WiFi spiraling throughout the room, La La Land offers supervising adults a chance at relaxation better than making the babysitter read Zen poetry aloud. The Indoor Playground also hosts kid-tailored classes and throws raucous birthday parties.
