Unity In Learning Camp-At-Home for Southeast Michigan Kids

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum, Leslie Science and Nature Center and Yankee Air Museum have teamed up to offer local kids the camping experience from home.

Did your child’s summer camp make coronavirus’ chopping block? While not quite the same as an in-person camp, your child can still get a camping experience this year. 

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum, Leslie Science and Nature Center and the Yankee Air Museum have come together to design an at-home camp experience that reduces kids’ time on a screen and encourages them to spend time outside instead.

Unity In Learning: Camp-at-Home” features five days of STEM activities each week through the end of August, along with everything you need to understand and complete the activities, plus five Science & Nature Camp episodes that take a deeper dive into the camp topic that week.

Campers can any or all of the weekly themes:

  • Science of Flight: July 27-31
  • Wondrous Wetlands: Aug. 3-7
  • Fantastic Fossils and Where to Find Them: Aug. 10-14
  • Intruder Alert: Aug. 17-21
  • Out of this World: Aug. 24-28

Camp-at-Home sessions are $40 per week ($35 if you’re a museum member). You can also add on special starter kits that are $45 for STEM kits and $30 for art kits. Camp scholarships are available for those facing financial hardship.
