Indoor and outdoor activities with easy-to-follow instructions for hours of fun are included in every camp box. Our Summer Camp in a Box program is recommended for children ages 6 to 10.

How It Works

  • Pick a week (or two, or three). From outdoor time to experimenting with seeds, gardening to creating crafts, each week offers a chance to feed your child’s curiosity while nurturing their mind.
  • Delivery. Choose your camp week and purchase the associated camp box. Shipping is limited to the continental United States.
  • Have Fun! Our nature-based science and art ventures get kids off the couch and exploring the outdoors.
