We are supporting families during COVID-19 with half-day interactive virtual summer camps, where students get to keep all the Art and Science Kits
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.
At Camp Captivate, we love innovation! Even though we are prioritizing safety and not running in-person camps this summer, our small, dedicated team of teachers put our minds together (from a distance) to develop and offer a truly unique summer experience for children ages 5-13. Unlike other virtual camps and courses, Camp Captivate combines live virtual learning with hands-on engagement through our thoughtfully curated education kits. Enrollment in our weekly virtual camps is limited in order to maintain an intimate program that we feel is crucial to the integrity of our mission.

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.”
