Backyard STEAM Virtual Summer Camp

San Diego, CA – July 26, 2020 

For many families around the world, this summer looks a little different than the one they planned. With summer camps canceled and vacations postponed, caregivers are looking for affordable activities to keep children entertained and educated through summer vacation.

Green Kid Crafts, a subscription box service centered on STEAM and nature-based activities, launched their Backyard STEAM Virtual Summer Camp to help parents bring the joys of camp to their own homes. Part of the program also includes virtual Campside Chats, which will be hosted on Facebook Live beginning on July 1st, 2020.

“We understand the challenges of today’s families, many of whom are being asked to work full time and provide a well-rounded education for their children this summer,” said Founder and CEO Penny Bauder. “We wanted to make it simple for parents and caregivers to engage children in activities and inspire them to become the next generation of environmental leaders.”

Green Kid Crafts Backyard STEAM Virtual Summer Camp includes three inspiring STEAM-based activity boxes designed by experts to meet the learning needs of specific age groups. Campside Chats serve as an opportunity for children to submit questions on topics like air quality, cleaner oceans, protection of endangered species, and improving climate change, and get live answers from experts.

“As a working parent, it’s time-consuming coming up with activities for the kids. I’m excited about Green Kid Crafts’ Backyard STEAM Virtual Summer Camp – not just because of the educational opportunity, but because it’s a chance for us to spend quality time together and getting excited about exploring nature.” – Sarah, Green Kid Crafts Subscriber. 

Green Kid Crafts is a subscription box service that provides educational STEAM and nature-based activities that help kids connect, communicate, and build relationships. Projects and ideas are researched and tested, saving families time and money on at-home activities. The organization has recently been honored with top Industry Awards: Parents Choice Award® and NCW Eco-Excellence Award®.
