DIY Summer Camp

~Your DIY Summer Camp Guide~

Camp was canceled this year . . . and it got me thinking about, reminiscing on, and rallying for all things summer.

Connecting with nature . . .

learning practical life skills . . .

developing strong values and character . . .

gaining once in a life time, sensory-rich experiences . . .

and having some good, old-fashioned fun.

So I devoted our summer to just that: a DIY, Summer Camp at Home —Camp Quarantine. Even if you hadn’t planned on sending your kid(s) to camp this year, or if your kid(s) are too young like mine, these DIY Summer Camp ideas can be used to enrich or liven up what may be promising to be a dull and boring summer.

So I invite you to make the most of this summer with your kids by spending some amazing quality time together, teaching them a few new life-skills, and just having some good-old-fashioned-summer-fun! I invite you to join our DIY Summer Camp 2020 journey! Below is everything you need to create an incredible at-home summer camp experience that you and your kids (and perhaps the neighbors) will never forget.
