Camp in a Box

Camp in a box! Well, technically Camp in a Bag, but that just doesn't have the same ring to it...

To say that 2020 has been a unique year is the understatement of the millennium. This is especially true for parents of young children – many of whom had to suddenly drop everything and become teachers. Some parents had to keep working and become teachers on top of that! (Not to mention all the teachers, who are also parents, but then had to do both from home!!!)

It's been a tough few months. Some parents are looking for any way to get their kids out of the house and into a social learning environment again. And then there are some parents who would love that but might not be too keen on the "socializing" part yet. Believe me, we completely understand. That's why we designed this program for your children.

Camp in a Box is one entire week of summer camp packaged up for you to take home. It brings the fun and energy of summer camp to the safety of your own backyard. Camp in a Box includes games, activities, worksheets, story time, crafts (and all the materials you need to make them) for 5 days all in one package.

And don't worry, we know you're probably tired of having your child plopped in front of a computer, sitting through endless Zoom meetings. Our activities are meant to get them up and moving and to get them outside! Here is the listing of due dates to sign up for each Camp in a Box:

Stay safe and enjoy this beautiful summer!
