Summer Camp @ Home

Due to the health concerns in our community and with the safety of your children in mind, Lollypop Farm has made the difficult decision not to host in-person camps this summer. We will miss all the laughter and smiles of kids learning here at the shelter, but are excited to now offer children an engaging virtual experience this summer!

Lollypop Farm is offering campers a variety of animal-themed week-long virtual camp experiences they can engage with right from their own home. Weeks are filled with a variety of live and self-paced activities to keep children engaged and entertained while learning about the pets they love!

What is the camp schedule like?

During the week of camp, camp families will receive login credentials to a private Class Dojo space. Morning emails will greet the campers each day and with a fun, interactive Bitmoji Classroom (interactive PDF and/or google slide) that will provide a variety of fun and educational self-paced activities. There will also be a variety of live, in-person virtual sessions that will feature special guest speakers and real animals! Live sessions will typically take place around 11:00 AM ET and will last between 30-60 minutes (depending on the topic and age of campers.) Campers will be encouraged to share and connect with their peers via the secure Class Dojo platform. (Parents will be able to check out their camper’s experience with their very own parent Class Dojo login!)

Technology Required for Virtual Camp Experience:

  • A computer or smart device with an internet connection
  • Email
  • Zoom
  • Class Dojo
  • Kahoot

Add hands-on activities to your camper’s out-of-class learning experience. Order a Lollypop Farm Camp @ Home Kit to accompany your camper’s virtual sessions and add elements of hands-on discovery to their experience at home. Each Camp @ Home Kit will include a Lollypop Farm camp t-shirt, book, and theme-based DIY crafts and activities! The camp kit will also include the printed packet of the PDF files that are shared virtually for your convenience.

Rates:
Virtual camp content only: $25
Camp Kit with hands-on activities and activity sheets: $30

Lollypop Farm Camp @ Home Kits will be sold up to 7 business days prior to each session, or until supplies last.

Multiple class offerings are available for each Lollypop Farm Camp @ Home experience. Week-long camp sessions do not build on each other and campers enrolled in two sessions of the same camp will experience repeat course material.
