What is virtual camp?

Virtual Summer U Camp is an opportunity for 7-10 year olds to attend camp online with other children from around the Baltimore community. Because of quarantine restrictions imposed, Summer U has developed an online camp on a virtual platform to help our campers experience the camp digitally, connecting them to each other and keeping their minds stimulated over the summer. There will be arts and crafts, S.T.E.M. Projects and other fun activities.

What are the camp days and times?

Camp will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from July 6 to August 5, at 9:00 am, 10:00 am, and 2:00 pm. 

What does a day in virtual camp look like?

A typical day of virtual camp:

9:00 am - S.T.E.M Programming 

10:00 pm - Arts & Crafts/Magic Training 

2:00 pm - Fitness/Exercise

*Times and activities are subject to change

What materials does URecFit provide for virtual camp?

URecFit will provide all necessary materials and supplies for every activity throughout the camp. All you need to do is pick up the supplies from the SMC Campus Center or Community Engagement Center.

Pick up dates and times TBA.

What do families need to provide for virtual camp?

Campers only need to provide a computer/tablet, internet, and access to Zoom and Google Meets, where the virtual program will take place.

 

If you need assistance in providing your child with any of the above, please email Mark Dixon at mdixon@umaryland.edu

How involved do parents need to be during virtual camp?

We know you all are busy throughout the day, so our camp activities are designed to require minimal involvement from  throughout the course of the day.  Depending on the activity, you all will need to ensure a safe work area for their child to participate at all times, and may need to assist the camper with any part of the activity they are having trouble with. 

Am I required to register my child for all 5 weeks of camp?

The Summer U Virtual Camp registration process allows you to sign your child up for any or all of the 5 weeks offered. 

We do ask that if your plans change that you please cancel your reservation to allow for others to register their child.
