Online Summer Camps for a Virtual Summer

Updated for 2021

Looking for an Online Summer Camp for your kids? These Camps are ready to keep kids busy all Summer long, with virtual programming you can access from home.

Many of the online Camps lets kids continue learning all Summer long, while others will focus more on helping kids move their bodies and stay active – and have fun!

The best part about these online courses is that you’ll be able to access them from anywhere; no matter where you live you can choose your own adventure this Summer. Try STEM Summer Camp one week, and a virtual art camp the next.

Whatever your kids like to do, there’s an Online Summer Camp for them.

Virtual Summer Camps Keep Kids Busy

Summer time can be a time of fun and adventure, but it’s important that kids continue learning so they don’t fall behind. Don’t forget: learning takes many forms, and even just interacting with other kids via a platform like Zoom helps promote healthy learning.

The time kids spend in a virtual Summer Camp can also help give parents much needed time of their own, especially if they are working from home.

Plus, it’s fun!

Kids: Choose Your Own Adventure this Summer

The wonderful opportunity here is that we are not limited by the physical distance between where you live and where the Camp is. With online courses, your children can do anything and everything they like to do. They get to choose based on what they like instead of what’s close by.

They can also allow kids to explore new things to see if they like them. It might be easier for a shy kid to try a Cooking Class virtually than to commit to spending a whole week in a camp. And it may involve cooking with Mom or Dad, which could make it even more fun – and a family bonding experience, too.

What About STEM Summer Camp?

If your kid is into STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, you’re in luck. These types of Summer Camps may be the easiest to deliver online. Learning to code, studying chemistry, applied math and statistics are all perfectly suited to an online classroom setting – and they are all potentially terrific job skills for your kid to have someday!

Online Camps for Kids in 2021

As you explore these options for a virtual Summer, try to decide which ones will ignite a passion in your child for a new course of study in the Fall. Or look for ones that will allow kids to explore something new that they’ve never tried before. Whatever you decide, we hope your kids have a wonderful Summer.
