The Longmont Museum’s popular Summer Camp series is continuing online through June and July. Designed for children from age 3 to 16 the camps are being held in a secure meeting room, but with many of the activities designed to be held in the backyard or nearby open space. Children already signed up for a regular camp session can transfer to the online session instead.
The camps include making paper sculptures or graphic novels, how to build a compass or a light saber, understanding the science of movement and even mastering the hula hoop. The full list can be viewed at the Museum’s website, which also describes the suggested age range for each activity and the dates and times for each virtual camp. Leading the sessions are the same experienced instructors that campers have learned with in the regular camp programs. Camp participation requires a computer, tablet, or smartphone that has a webcam, mic, speakers, and internet access.Camps cost between $125 and $185 per session and include all the necessary supplies for each activity. Registration is online or by calling the Museum at (303)651-8374. Since the Museum is closed, leave a voice message and the call will be returned within 24 hours. The special supplies kit for each camp will be available for curbside pickup after registration. To ensure children’s safety parents must sign a multimedia waiver for their child to participate in online camp.
