Virtual Camps, Classes & Field Trips you need to know about

What local Camps are going Online?

Virtual Summer Camps, Field trips and Classes

Summer is here. (Home) schooling and learning is technically over, but the question is NOW what are you going to do with the kids?!?

It doesn’t mean kids are stuck with TV or Roblox and Minecraft as their only option. While some summer camps may be in session, many have canceled their offerings this Summer.

But check out how some very creative camps have pivoted to a virtual summer camp option! 

There are varying length options and camps for almost everything: art, coding, cooking, theatre, crafting and many more.

This is a great way to explore and try out shorter experiences (including 2-hour camps) with new places, from the comfort of your own home and tablet or computer. 

We also have ideas for Classes and Virtual Field Trips too! 

If you are looking for VBS options, there are some which are Virtual and local.

If your Kids want to try out Production, rather than performance, they also have Virtual Production Camps too!

Virtual productions are perfect for the experienced student who wants to participate in a major production this summer. Camps last a full week. Students will audition the first day of rehearsal, and each week will culminate in a live performance of the production via Zoom – perfect for ages 10-18.
