With everyone worried about COVID-19, the world’s been a bit crazy lately. The Bernardsville Pop-Up Pantry, the Basking Ridge Farmers Market., and many other local businesses have begun to open back up to the public. Even so, we still need to use precautions when interacting with others. Large gatherings are still discouraged. However, your kids can still get the thrill of a summer camp experience without ever leaving the safety of home. Basking Ridge virtual summer camps open up next month.
Basking Ridge Virtual Summer Camps
Did you ever go away to summer camp as a kid? A week or more away from your parents. Having fun in nature with other kids your age. Making new life-long friends. Those days may be on hold for now, but your kids can still experience the fun a summer camp has to offer directly from the safety and security of your own home.
The EEC (Environmental Education Center) in Basking Ridge closed its doors to the public at the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak. But their virtual doors remain open. So, the naturalists at the EEC thought it would be fun to give their summertime programs a virtual twist. For just $15 per 1 hour session, let your kids learn about nature from the experts. Eco-Explorers (ages 4 to 10) become Swamp Scientists or learn about animal adaptations. AWESIM Kids (ages 10 to 16) learn how to survive in the wilderness, what plants are edible and which to avoid, and they learn the value of water to an ecosystem.
Registration for Virtual Summer Camp
Registration for Basking Ridge Virtual Summer Camps began earlier this week. Visit the Sommerset County Park Commission website to sign your kids up for camp. You need to create an account in order to register. That $15 per session allows as many kids (and parents) to participate as you want. So, make summer camp a family affair.
