With summer camps pretty much non-existent this year, parents are looking for new ways to keep their kids engaged for the next few months.
According to a press release, each week two activities will be released online that “help foster life skills” such as confidence, independence, teamwork, communication and leadership.
Rachel Buccholz, editor in chief of Nat Geo Kids, recently spoke with ABC 7 Chicago about the goals of the project. “What we wanted to do was look at the experiences that kids were probably missing right now and figure out ways that they could do them at home,” she said during the interview. “For instance, they might be swimming in lakes and doing crafts, so we wanted to give them the opportunity to do those things right at home.”
