Do your kids go to summer camp?
Last year we tried a DIY Summer Camp! I was looking for a camp that would be a good fit for my son and the only one I found in his age group was too pricey. My son was still pretty young and I wasn’t sure if he’d actually stay all day or not want to go home early so I thought for a fraction of the cost we’d try summer camp at home.
DIY Summer Camp QUARANTINE EDITION
This year we have revised our summer camp to a Quarantine Edition & included many DIY activites. Since some of us are still hunkering down for Stay-at-home orders and it is likely that summer camps will not open up this year & NOW is a great time to buy your copy of our Summer Camp at home eBook.
Care to virtually join us? It’s super easy:
- Get the ebook (above) or activity calendar (below)
- Buy the Kits or gather supplies at home for DIY
- Have fun!

We chose a low prep way to summer fun. Here is the month’s activities I have planned…
DIY Summer Camp Materials:
Faux campfire (gather sticks & rocks to make a faux fire pit with semi-upright sticks and a rock border)
DIY Summer Camp Science
Basic Art Supplies
We used the Giant Art Jar kit by Alex but since Covid 19- it has sold out. This one is a great replenishment alternative to your existing arts & craft supplies.
This is the most recent gifted item that we tried & we HIGHLY recommend it! This makes a better started kit or if you need to replenish your supplies for a larger family. It even has it’s own organizer with handle.
Nature Exploration Kit
Pirate Dramatic Play
- Re-purposed Cardboard Boxes (to build a ship)
- Construction paper (to make your pirate map)
- Pirate Costume
