Summer Camp at Home Planner
One of my first jobs was as the director of an after school program and head of summer camp at an elementary school. In planning a summer camp for a group of various-aged children, picking fun themes was central to all of my ideas.
Themes such as space, the ocean, Disney and so many more make learning throughout the summer really fun. Get creative with these themes making arts and crafts, finding virtual field trips and whipping up themed snacks.
Related: In the past, I have offered a Summer Camp at Home 6 week plan to follow with themed weeks and an art/craft, sensory play, science activity and snack for each week alongside field trips and books to read. I am still offering that specific plan with printable activities, you can purchase that here. If you are interested in just the free printable planner, scroll down and continue reading!
