With social distancing still in effect, summer is going to look a lot different this year, and that includes summer camps. Summer camps—if they are choosing to still run in-person programs—will have to drastically cut the number of children they can accommodate. Because of this many day camps are choosing to run online programs to keep costs down and stay afloat.
We’ve rounded up 10 summer camps that are offering online programs that will help keep your kids busy and entertained throughout the summer times.
This summer Brain Power will be offering a range of exciting and educational online courses for many grade levels in Language Arts, Math and Problem Solving, Critical Reading and Writing, and Science.
Looking for some French fun this summer? This virtual French camp for children aged 4 to 12 has significant academic components as well as some fun aspects, run by trained and knowledgeable leaders, and on a safe and secure online platform.

Camp @ Home
Camp @ Home aims to give kids the full camp experience, just from the comfort and safety of home. Campers log in for three hours of engaging programming and social connection each day. Twice a day, campers break off into their “cabins”—small, age-specific groups. Each day your camper will participate in various interactive camp-wide activities, games and competitions.
Live presenters will engage your children with fun, interactive and hands-on experiments. Step-by-step guided activities and cool demonstrations turn screen time into a fun and meaningful experience that is sure to capture your child’s attention. All supplies provided are safe, fun and designed to create a memorable summer camp experience! Morning and/or afternoon sessions are available. Sign up for one week or the whole summer!
