Summer Camps Are Here!

Summer Camp Resources

Summer camps are here!
COVID-19 has caused parents everywhere to rearrange their summer plans. Instead of traditional summer camps, families and camps are choosing virtual options to adhere to social distancing guidelines. Although some organizations are sticking to tradition by hosting in person camps, there are still adjustments being made to keep everyone safe and healthy. From educational to recreational, Ralspin has provided a list of virtual camps to get you started. 

ELEMENTARY STUDENTS
Camp Supernow
Students from ages 5 to 11 can join a virtual “cabin” at Camp Supernow. Campers will be paired with a counselor and other campers from across the country for an hour of crafts and activities on Zoom. Each session is two weeks and costs $199 per camper. See if your kids will like the camp before you commit with a free trial day.

MIDDLE SCHOOL
BIZNOVATOR VIRTUAL BizTech Camp
The BIZNOVATOR Virtual Camp is a fast-paced interactive online camp experience that allows students to apply what they’ve learned, including writing their own start-up business plan. Some of the topics covered are mindfulness, technology and entrepreneurship.

ALL AGES
Camp Wonderopolis
This STEAM focused camp provides fun and education for kids of all ages. Camp Wonderopolis offers free STEAM—science, technology, engineering, arts, and math—programs. The camp helps kids with vocabulary, background knowledge in science, reading comprehension, critical thinking, and other literacy skills along the way.iD Tech
The iD Tech Virtual Tech Camps teach kids from 7 to 19 everything from coding to machine learning. They are offering several sessions this summer to help build new skills, connect with other students online and explore their creativity as it relates to all things tech.

New York University is offering an array of immersive online courses and workshops to afford high school students opportunities to engage with leading scholars and professionals, and collaborate with classmates from all over the world. Parents and students may select from more than 30 programs.
