Whether or not you’re sending your kids away to summer camp this year, you can still give them the full experience at home. We are doing our best to make it as easy as possible for parents, babysitters, grandparents and nannies to create an at-home kids camp experience that will provide educational enrichment, fun activities and positive summer memories.
Throughout the entire month of June we’ll be posting Kids camp themes with coordinating activities, craft projects, supply lists and more. Get your entire family involved in the activities or take turns hosting a kids camp with the other parents in your neighborhood.
How can you get started? There are several steps to making a successful summer camp for your kids. Follow these steps below and leave the rest to us.
- Choose Dates – Get in touch with friends, family or parents in your neighborhood and choose days that will work for everyone. Give everyone a set day to host summer camp and mark it on the calendar.
- Create a Schedule – Depending on your personality, you can create a loose schedule or have everything planned out hour by hour. Designate breakfast, lunch times, activities, breaks and snacks.
- Gather Materials – Make sure you do grocery shopping and craft supplies shopping in advance. Use the supply lists in our kids camp posts to help guide your shopping efforts.
- Set Goals – Understand that things will change. Kids are unpredictable, so set some realistic goals for yourself and the children. Choose one thing you’d like to see the children get out of their day and ensure you focus on that throughout the planning process.
The last step is choosing your kids camp theme. While there are thousands to pick from online, we’re going to do all the work for you.
Be sure to check out the Crafts Unleashed blog every Tuesday the entire month of June for trending activities for kids that you can turn into the perfect summer camp crafts for kids.
