How Does Online Summer Camp Work?
We paint, draw, craft, dance, sing, play games, and make surprise postcards for our camp penpals. We laugh, meditate, do downward dogs, share art journals, have talent shows and bond with friends, old and new. Together, in a safe, warm and non-judgemental caring camp community, we will make magic and memories from the safety of home.
Each week, your camper is able to enjoy a variety of their favorite activities every day. We have crafted an online summer camp program that offers real-life fun!

Online Art Camp
9 amMorning Friendship Gratitude Circle, Surprise Art Games & Icebreakers
Promoting friendship, creativity and FUN, friends gather with a new daily camper as the morning leader to lead the group in a different activity every morning. Engage socially and start the day to get the energy going! Keep things surprising so that every day is fun, different and engaging.
A: Morning Friendship Gratitude Circle: Focusing on inspiration and kindness, share in conversations such as “what are you most grateful for”, “what qualities are important in a leader, name one person in your life that you think is a leader”, and “what is the most important quality in a good friend”? Go around in a “circle” so each person can share.
B: Art Games: From drawing prompts to cahoot to pictionary and more, kick off the day with an online game that all participate in.
C: Icebreakers: Allow a camper to lead the icebreaker by providing them with a list of possible icebreaker questions, and they then lead the way.
9:15 -10 amFear-Free Sketching/ 5 Minute Drawing Game
A live, step-by-step drawing project where art techniques are learned and practiced in real time. Sharing fun-facts about famous artists, names of techniques of the day for kids to remember (especially for the younger kids) and beautiful artwork created. Subject matter includes drawing animals, portraits, cartoons, landscapes, artist-inspired pieces and more in pastels, pencil, and sharpies!
*To keep things fun and engaging, take a “surprise break” to keep kids engaged at 9:35 for 5 minutes max. Choose from the list of online games, such as a quick scavenger hunt, a Lipsync contest, or a drawing prompt game.
10 – 10:05 am Grooving and Moving: 5 Minute Dance Party and Other Fun Movement Games
One camper chooses their favorite song, and blast it over screen share to dance (rather than sitting and sitting in front of the screen), a 5 minute laughter yoga video, a scavenger home hunt race, and more
10:05 – 10:50a Watercolor and Mixed-Media Portrait Painting
Kick off with a short video (link provided) about Frida Kahlo, learn about what makes her artwork unique, and have a quick chat about this famous artist. Sharing new techniques and encouraging individual expression, guide the group in a step-by-step art project while providing individualized feedback as they create their artwork.
*Have a quick 3 minute game ready to play and enjoy in the middle of the painting to keep kids engaged and laughing.
10:50 am – 10:55 am Daily Art Gallery Exhibit
Share your art from the day with camp friends. Attend on your own or invite friends and family at home, too. Every day, a new camper(s) will be the “showcased gallery artist” and share about the artwork they created today, and all other campers will be able to interact and share what they like most about the artwork created. Other days, have multiple campers show their artwork, and use the zoom breakout for people to group up in pairs.
10:55 am Favorites
