There seem to be new online summer camp options cropping up daily for the 2020 season, and we wanted to share some of the new offerings with you.
Although throughout our parental history the summer camp scramble always began in March (or even January!) and continued through May, by which time kids were enrolled and set for a summer of fun, things are naturally scramblier this year as many camps got off to a late start due to health concerns or just delayed reopenings as they figured out new safety precautions.
Now, in mid-July, we're seeing a host of new camps, especially FREE online summer camps from big-name corporations like Apple and Google, as well as top-notch nonprofit organizations, such as 4-H Club and UNICEF. So if you're nostalgic for camps of yore (i.e., last year), note that these FREE virtual camps are open to kids all over the US, from New York to Los Angeles, so kids in cities thousands of miles apart still have a chance to meet and connect with kids they might otherwise never have known—just like a sleepaway camp.
