Website Brings The Fun Of Summer Camp To Parents and Kids Stuck At Home
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — This is not the summer anyone was expecting. But it doesn’t have to be a summer of boredom.
A just-launched website called “BringCampHome.com” is doing what seemed to be impossible just weeks ago as camps nationwide announced cancellations and closures due to COVID-19.
Founded by two parents who wish to remain anonymous, “it’s not about us, it’s about kids,” they said in an exclusive interview with BocaNewsNow.com, the site is full of camp activities that can be replicated at home.
The brilliance: a series of drop-down menus that create a printable schedule for each day of the summer. And much like “real” camp, the activities — complete with instructions and supply lists — fit perfectly into the categories you’d expect at camp.
The camper’s day is divided into six activities — three in the morning, three in the afternoon. The options include arts and crafts, general fun, nature, sports and water activities.
But you don’t need a “rec hall,” you don’t need a lake, and you certainly don’t need a forest. What you do need is a little imagination and the realization that if presented correctly, pretty much any activity can be exciting for kids living through this pandemic.
Once you choose a category (let’s say arts and crafts), the user is prompted to choose specific camp-centric activities like Gimp or rock painting. Water activities? Bet you didn’t know just how many water games exist with sprinklers.
”We wanted kid-tested activities that are easy to set up pretty much anywhere,” said one of the founders — a mom of two young girls.
And appreciating something only parents can, there is an option to add a break (rest period!) between activities
Not creative? No problem. Each activity is presented with instructions — some even created by kids themselves.
“There are a lot of families in very difficult situations right now because of camp and summer activity closures,” said the founding mom. “We want this to help.”
