Take-home kits, at-home activities, curbside pick-up kits… we aren’t sure what exactly to call these options, but local businesses and organizations have some great options for your kids this summer!

These are take home activity boxes that you can order from a LOCAL organization to complete at your own pace this summer OR use alongside their online videos and virtual camp information.

Stay tuned as we expect this list will continue to grow! Next week we’ll also be coming out with a list of online local camps and other virtual activities.
