Whether you’re spending the summer on the road or just looking for at-home activities to keep kids engaged over the summer, check out our list of Online and Virtual Summer Camps below.
Before you stop reading this post and think “Ugh! I don’t want my kids on a computer all summer, I want them DOING THINGS” – trust us when we tell you most of these “camps” are opportunities for kids to learn and explore by DOING, the instructions just happen to be online! Whether you’re looking for self-guided activities kids can do on their own or just want some pre-tested activities with instructions for easy at-home activities, you’ll find something on our list below.
Our list includes both free and paid summer camps and online activities, separated by cost. Many of the free camps do involve hands-on activities where kids will need to use or purchase household materials. The level of parental involvement required varies by camp as well as age level, but many of the activities are perfect for the whole family to do together.
Tips for navigating this list: If a listing is marked “Online Activity” (with or without Hands-On) that typically means you can do it anytime at your own pace. If a camp is marked “Online Virtual Camp” that typically means it requires registration and has set times for live classes. If “Teen” is listed as a theme, that simply means options for teens are available, but it is not exclusive to teens. Click on the name of any camp to read the full description.
