Because safe at home shouldn't mean bored at home!
As summer approaches, are you wondering...
"What on Earth will we do with the kids all day?!"
You aren't alone! Parents across the country are seeking an answer to the same question.
Our unique Camp@Home Crates are sure to keep children inspired and engaged this summer. Click below to register or scroll down to learn more!
What is Camp@Home?
Camp@Home is a one-of-a-kind enrichment program and activity box for kids from the creative minds at Play to Grow!
We know that you want your child to have opportunities for meaningful connection with peers this summer, learn new skills, and engage in fun and unique experiences.
More importantly, we know what you don't want - long hours in front of a computer, confusing online platforms, and more "parent projects" on your to-do list.
What's included in my Camp@Home Crate?
Each Camp@Home Crate provides your family with a daily roster of screen-free activities, concise instructional videos, all the needed materials, and opportunities to connect with peers!
Camp is about creativity!
Each Camp@Home Crate provides all* the materials your child will need to participate in 10-15 weekly activities!
*Most camps will require a few common household items such as hot water, a squeeze of dish soap, or a tablespoon of vinegar. We'll provide a list in the box description.
Camp is about connection!
Your child will have opportunities to connect with peers through virtual show & tells, interactive challenges, and even a family game night!
Camp is about learning!
You'll get access to our easy to navigate portal with a daily roster of movement activities, brain challenges, and art projects with concise video instructions.
The Nitty Gritty...
Why are there dates associated with my crate?
When we polled parents, many expressed that a top priority was live interaction with the instructor and peers. By scheduling our Camp@Home Crates, we'll have a cohort of campers all completing their program at the same time and sharing their experiences with each other during our virtual hangouts.
Is there a daily schedule?
We did our best to provide families with both routine and flexibility. We provide a sample schedule for the week, but you are more than welcome to arrange your week in the way that works for your family. The virtual hangouts are the only scheduled activity, and are totally optional!
How do I get my crate?
When you register for a Camp@Home Crate, you'll have the option to select local pickup, delivery (within 10 miles of 20879), or USPS shipping.
What ages can participate?
The beauty of Camp@Home is that we can serve a much broader age range than during our in-person programs. We've provided a suggested age range for each crate, but understand that younger kids could certainly enjoy completing the activity with a parent or older sibling. You know your child best!
