OnLine Summer Camp Ideas!

Summer is not going to be normal this year, but you can still make it fun for the kids!

If you’re used to shipping the kids to a camp for a few days, you can still do that virtually. Some cost money and some are free, so you’ll need to do your research depending on yours and your child’s needs. According to Common Sense media, these are some of the best:

  • Brain Chase, $99. Kids work on math, reading, and typing all while competing in a real-life treasure hunt for the chance to win $1,000 in gold.
  • Camp Edmo, $150 and up. An engaging mix of learning projects, indoor games, and screen-time breaks. There are weekly topics like climate change and music.
  • Camp Kinda. Free. Offers themed activities like "Histories Mysteries," for kids to complete at their own pace. Each week until Sept. 1, kids get a new week's worth of online, offline, and even outdoor activities designed to take about three to four hours per day.
  • Camp Wonderopolis. Free. Sponsored by the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL), this online camp lets kids explore topics such as weather, food, and technology. Each topic includes lessons, outdoor activities, videos, and additional reading suggestions for all ages.
