Virtual Camp

We know that everyone is dealing with change and new routines because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to keep our community connected, give our campers opportunities to see one another, and have a little fun, we invite them to join us for WEEK 2 of virtual In the City Camps activities every afternoon from 3:30 – 4(ish) the week of March 23 – 27 (no sign up required). More virtual camp to come next week!

We are excited to now offer virtual bunks! In addition to Virtual Camp, these age-appropriate groups will have a dedicated counselor and weekly “hangout” time on Wednesdays and Sundays for about 30 minutes each, sometime between 2:00-5:00pm (depending on age group). We think it is really important to foster additional connections for our campers right now. If you’d like to sign your child up to join a virtual bunk, click here.

  1. A special mask or other medical devices to stop the spread of germs in public places.
  2. A toy for a person that either cannot see or cannot hear.
  3. A piece of clothing for a pet that would keep them dry in the rain.

    • Scissors, glue, tape, markers
    • Paper products, plastic silverware
    • Cotton pads, balls, q-tips
    • Trash and grocery bags
