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.
