You provide the space (indoors or outdoors) and we bring over our program. You can choose our camp curriculum or you can ask us to design a theme for you.
How it works: Do you want to occupy your kids with a complete, multidisciplinary and fun education in the safe environment of your home or space? Reach out to your friends and acquaintances in your community who want to send their kids to a summer camp but prefer the comfort and safety of a familiar home rather than a bus ride to a location.
-You can host a small group of 3-6 kids for all or any of the weeks June 27th to August 26th. You will get a discount for your kid for each weekly camp you host.
(Please check the pricing page for more information).
-You can host as many weeks as you wish or each week we may rotate to other parents’ homes, so parents who want to host can get a chance too.
-Do not worry there will be no mess, no hassle. We clean and leave everything in the room the way you had them before.
