Camping at Home

Duplicate the fun of summer camp in your own backyard. Pick a week and a master theme, such as space, magic or art. Gather your materials. Get some books at the library. Find some activities online. Think about how you can incorporate math, reading, writing, and science into your camp. Don’t forget field trips! Invite some camper friends if you’d like.
