Summer Plans?

What about summer?

Social distancing at camp can be hard. Especially if you’re unsure whether you’ll be working from home or looking for childcare. Online camp with Camp by Rae can help with your planning process.

  1. Low commitment. Whether your kid camps for 1 week or 1 day, you’ll take comfort knowing that they are engaged and socializing.
  2. Travel friendly. Need to bring your kid to work? Grab the tablet and both kiddo and camp are ready to roll.
  3. Less scheduling. Are you starting to feel like your child’s personal assistant? Enjoy fewer emails and logins while trusting that your kids calendar is complete.

What about screen time?

As part of our healthy vision initiative, our camp format is broken up into 55 minutes of screen time, 55 minute minimal screen usage, 55 minutes of screen time. Every camp day offers at least one movement based class which is gamified. Through activities that are gamified and encourage independent choice, students are focusing more on their decision making and less on their screens. This means out of 55 minutes a total of 30-40 minutes be spent focused on the screen.
