Camp Captivate is supporting families with high-quality virtual enrichment classes & summer camps that help spark joy and curiosity in children. Although our summer camp season has concluded, we are excited to offer enrichment classes from the safety of home.
S.T.E.A.M. is a celebration of two or more of the key pillars — Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics — integrated in a thoughtful way. We are excited to offer a variety of half-day interactive virtual camp, featuring live instruction compliant with social distancing guidelines.
Are your children fully absorbed with distance learning at school? Do they hunger for more interesting, enriching activities as a supplement to their regular school? We have applied our years of experience with S.T.E.A.M. summer camps to unveil quality enrichment classes. Camp Captivate is offering “live” (synchronous) virtual enrichment classes for preschool through middle school-aged children to solve that problem. With small class sizes, dedicated teachers, and interactive lessons, students will explore a variety of high quality enrichment classes while strengthening bonds with the teacher and classmates for social and emotional development.

What People Are Saying…
“I just wanted to say, thank you for the online art classes you provided! My six-year-old called it her favorite part of her day. She loved the birds and tulips in particular, and has been adding nice round tulips to many of her drawings since then. It warmed my heart to watch her enjoying the inspiration you provided.”
“I can’t say enough good things about this camp. We’ve tried several other camps – some technology-based and others not – but none has been as rewarding as Camp Captivate.”
