How is Virtual Camp different than your current Virtual Programs?

Camp Sunshine 2.0 is the Summer Virtual Programming experience. Camp Sunshine 2.0 is an engaging program that will offer campers the ability to participate in camp activities with their flat camper, interactive instruction, and activities campers do at home. Plus they get to make new friends as they participate in small group activities during cabin time.

 

Why do I need Virtual Camp when my child can just go outside and play this summer?

We remember being a child and spending our summer days outside, romping around with our friends, riding a bike to the swimming pool, and going to sleep-overs. Unfortunately, many of these activities will be severely limited if not impossible this summer. There will be limits on the size of group gatherings for a while and some of your child’s friends may not be available for in-person socializing. The summers we remember fondly will not be the summer of 2020. Camp Sunshine 2.0 will teach your child outdoors skills that they can use on their own or when it is safe to get back to camp.

What about Screen Fatigue?

Camp Sunshine 2.0 will be adventurous and engaging instead of draining and boring. Each minute during the 4 hour camp will be packed with opportunities for campers to get up out of their chair for physical activities, as well as learning new skills. We also have scheduled breaks to allow campers time to socialize with each other. Cabin breakout rooms will be small, so girls will get to know each other.
