Looking for something fun and educational for your children to do this summer? The Children’s Museum of Phoenix is providing its first virtual camp experience, “CAMP IN A BOX,” designed for children ages 4 to 10 years old this month and in July.
The museum, like many other organizations around the country, has had to close its physical doors in order to protect visitors and employees because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“CAMP IN A BOX” has an instructional guide, a schedule, project supplies, art materials and access to virtual content that blends with the camp themes for each week. You can pick up the boxes at curbside at the museum or for $25 you can have a staff member hand deliver the boxes to your doorsteps. The virtual content will feature camp counselors leading children in different activities including movement, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) projects, storytime and other lessons. Content will be pre-recorded so campers may work at their own pace.
A museum staff member wearing a mask and gloves will wash every item in the boxes with a disinfectant.
Each “CAMP IN A BOX” costs $129 per week per box for non-museum members and $99 per box per week for museum members. To purchase a “CAMP IN A BOX,” visit childrensmuseumofphoenix.org/exhibits-and-experiences/camps.
