Once upon a time, back in 2014, 2 teachers implemented a tiny dream in their hearts and called it The Literacy Camp (which has now grown into one of the BEST virtual camps for kids you could dream of!). They poured their hearts and souls into creating a space for children to learn to LOVE reading and writing. With educational backgrounds, they studied quickly to become entrepreneurs with a mission to serve families well.
And as The Literacy Camp dream grew year after year, The Literacy Camp family grew as well, with the formation of Team Literacy Camp and over 500 children attending this unique summer camp experience. We are so excited that this story is still being written…
The Literacy Camp Dream – Now Among the BEST Virtual Camps for Kids
Watching this Literacy Camp dream unfold, and seeing firsthand the impact on so many children and families, gives us all the warm and fuzzy feelings. We truly believe it’s magical. We founded it because we wanted to create a summer camp for reading where kiddos who LOVED to read, write, and learn had a special place to thrive during school breaks. MANY homeschool families LOVE using The Literacy Camp as a fun, enrichment week that the mamas don’t have to plan!
Additionally, we wanted to provide working families with a solution for school breaks that would encourage even the most reluctant of readers. We are confident that we’ll get your kids loving to learn in no time!
And because we believe that helping nurture a love for learning with kids early will make the biggest, long-lasting impact, for the past 7 years, we’ve provided programming for incoming 1st-3rd graders. And The Literacy Camp is now among the growing number of virtual camps for kids. We could not be more excited!
Why Virtual Camps for Kids?
Parents everywhere have adapted as families grow and the world changes. And as virtual camps for kids have started popping up, you might be wondering why. Maybe you’re working from home while juggling children learning during the school year or simply have them home on school breaks. Maybe you’ve got children who are shy and you’re thinking this might be an easy step for them to connect with others.
Or you might simply be looking for something for those kids to do over school breaks but love having them home for a little extra family time too.
We’ve been hearing families ask us to expand The Literacy Camp to new areas for years – as we’ve had sweet families driving over an hour to experience it in person. Moms and dads everywhere are tired and busy, but they love their kiddos well. We see you. So we want to step in and help take a little weight off your shoulders.
How Was This Virtual Summer Camp Designed?
First of all, virtual summer camp?! Yes please!
Because keeping children’s engagement and ease of implementation has been front of mind, these virtual camps for kids largely require items you already have in your home and a Wi-Fi connection.
