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: $45 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: $75 for 8 visits and 2 cups of our gourmet coffee for you. Can be used for multiple children.

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.

Spirits soar at our popular summer camp! Children enjoy hours of active fun interspersed with art, music and spontaneous giggles! They have a blast as they swoosh down slides, wiggle through mazes, and leap gallop and skip in our mega structure. They form new friendships, and bond with our super cool staff that gets to know each child and make them feel special.

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. Our schedule is set up to create a balance of energetic play, artistic discovery and some quiet time at the end of the day when kids take a break from the action.

Week 2 July 15th - 19th

Week 3 July 22nd - 26th

Camp hours are from 10am to 3pm with extended hours available.

Camp rates are:

$225 per week, and $195 for siblings,

$49 per day, and $40 for siblings, or

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.


PlayWerx Promotes Healthy Eating

Do you ever cringe when you child receives an invitation to a birthday party because you know that the food served at kid parties isn’t usually the most nutritious? Do you worry when you are out and about with your children that you’ll end up snacking on food that is less than nutritious? Well that isn’t a problem with play time or birthday parties at PlayWerx, because promoting healthy eating along with great indoor play is our number one goal!

PlayWerx is proud to offer reasonably priced foods and snacks in the café at our Carlsbad location. Birthday parties also get the same quality food as well. When you bring your kids to Playwerx, they can choose from a wide variety of kid friendly, yet healthy items such chicken nuggets, grilled cheese sandwiches, quesadillas or PB&Js all made from the highest quality ingredients that are either natural or organic. And keeping Mom and Dad in mind, PlayWerx has a great selection of wraps and other specials sure to please.

That’s right; there is something to please everyone. Stress free fun, guilty free eating and of course our delectable CoffeeWerx Bar, where you can order up your favorite espresso drink, hot, iced or blended, we do it all! We use only the highest quality beans, roasted right here in San Diego.  So come on in for some fun for the children and some downtime for yourself, we can’t wait to see you!


Playwerx Knows Active Play is Important!

{A happy, active kid at Playwerx!}
These days, it is all too common for children to spend hours playing on their iPad or laptop, which is why active play and physical exercise are so important! As parents ourselves, we know that there are days when your kids need an active play alternative, and that is why we provide a safe indoor play center that parents love, too!
While regular physical activity is good for everyone, it is vital for healthy growth and development of babies and young children. According to Kids at Play, the government website promoting healthy eating and active play, regular physical activity is important for maintaining good health, enhancing social skills and self-confidence and preventing the development of poor health or health risk factors.
Regular physical activity across the lifespan has shown the following proven benefits:
·         Healthy weight management
·         Increased movement, coordination, balance and reaction time
·         Healthy growth and development
·         Building strong bones, muscles and hearts
·         Acquisition of fundamental motor skills
·         Prevention of Type II diabetes
·         Prevention of cardiovascular disease
·         Prevention of some forms of cancer
