Confetti Adventure Camp, Virtual Edition
Engage your child at home with a thrilling all-day adventure in our week long camps that offer fun, socialization, physical activity, creativity, problem solving, play and learning! There are puzzles to solve, clues to find, and information to learn as campers move through adventures at exciting locations throughout the world, learning and playing as they go!
Camps meet virtually from 10am-4:30pm Monday-Friday and are lead by an engaging Confetti camp counselor, who is available (virtually) to your child during the full camp hours. There will be independent hands-on work away from the computer and physical activity. A supply list of minimal, readily available materials will be provided so your child can have all they need for the week of exploration!
This camp is best suited for children who have a comfort-level with reading independently. Younger campers can participate, but will require assistance from someone at home to engage in the activities.
We are donating 15% of the proceeds from our summer camp sales to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, America's premier legal organization fighting for racial justice.
What device do I need? Each camper needs a device with Internet access. If you have a laptop or Chromebook, you will have an easier time typing and participating compared to if you only have a smartphone. But a smartphone will work, in a pinch. Whatever device you use, it needs to have a camera and microphone so that campers can participate in videoconferencing. It also needs to have a strong Internet connection.
What browser works best? Campers will be doing learning challenges on the Brain Chase platform. It works best with Safari, Chrome, and Firefox. It does not support Microsoft Explorer or Edge.
