Virtual ExCEL Summer Camp
Below is the information for the Virtual ExCEL Summer Camp. Although the camps were created to be accessible for children with visual impairments, they are still appropriate for all students. The best part is that the camps are free for everyone!!
You’re Invited! Is your child ready to have some summer camp fun? We know large gatherings, including summer sports and educational camps, are likely to be restricted, so we want to make sure your child has opportunities to play, learn, and socialize! The Virtual ExCEL Academy we hosted this spring was a major success, so much so that we wanted the fun to keep going. We’re so excited to invite your family to join us for the Inaugural Virtual ExCEL Camp from mid-June through mid-August! Camp InfoEach week-long camp will have a fun theme to center the activities around. From Outdoor Adventure and Ocean Exploration, to Around the World and Mission Impossible, the camps are a guaranteed good time! For each of the 5 days of the camp you will get a theme and age-specific at-home extension activity for your child to complete. The camp also includes a live hour at 2:00 PM ET, on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and is free to all registrants. Virtual ExCEL Camp will be separated by age/grade groups. Please register your students with their needs and levels in mind. We know students are not always able to attend during the scheduled hour so we’ll be recording these sessions so everyone has the opportunity to learn whenever it’s convenient for them.
