Indoor Summer Camp Activities You Can Do At Home

Written By: happycamper

Summer camps are the perfect opportunity for children to learn new skills, make friends and experience new things. However, not all parents are able to send their kids to summer camps due to financial constraints or other reasons. But that doesn’t mean that kids have to miss out on all the fun. With a little creativity and effort, parents can create an indoor summer camp for their kids right at home. Here are some fun indoor summer camp activities for kids that you can do at home.

Set up a craft station with different supplies such as paint, markers, stickers, glitter, and construction paper. Encourage kids to use their imagination and create their own unique projects. You can even turn it into a friendly competition and award prizes for the most creative project.



Cooking is a fun activity for kids that can also teach them valuable life skills. Set up a cooking station in the kitchen and have your kids help you prepare snacks and meals. You can even have them come up with their own recipes and have a cooking competition.


Science Experiments

Science experiments are a great way to keep kids engaged and teach them about the world around them. There are plenty of simple experiments that can be done at home such as making a volcano or creating a balloon rocket.


Indoor Camping

Set up a tent in the living room or backyard and have a camping adventure right at home. You can even have a pretend campfire and tell stories or sing campfire songs.


Movie Night

Have a movie night complete with popcorn and snacks. Let your kids choose the movie and create a cozy atmosphere with blankets and pillows.


Virtual Field Trips

With the power of technology, kids can experience the world without leaving home. Take them on virtual field trips to museums, zoos, and historical landmarks.


Sports Day

Create a mini Olympics at home with different sports activities such as relay races, obstacle courses, and ball games. You can even create medals or trophies for the winners.
