Loosli learning virtual summer "camp"
Are you looking for easy to implement summer learning ideas or fun, enriching activities that provide little to no prep work? Are you a year-round homeschool family who wants to take a break from a traditional homeschooling schedule but also prevent summer learning loss during that break? Well our virtual summer "camp" may be for you!
By definition, a camp can be described as a supervised program held during summer to foster personal growth for children by providing them fun, safe educational/recreational programs, outdoor experiences, academic activities and group activities while away from "home" during the summer months. The primary purpose of many camps is educational, athletic, or cultural development. A summer camp environment may allow children to learn new skills in a safe and nurturing environment. There are sooooo many different types of camps from sports to performing arts to overnight camps.
Many of us tend to send our children to a paid or free summer camp outside of the home. But what if you can't afford to do so? or what if you are year-round homeschoolers who want your children to still focus on academics? Below is our traditional summer homeschooling schedule. I call it our Loosli Learning Summer Camp. The scholars are still learning but there is less focus on time restraints, direct instruction, written work, tests, etc. Below is the typical schedule I use for my own children. All of the activities and resources are posted in our digital classroom. Most of the activities are self-guided (marked by a *S and posted by me in our digital classroom) while some are parent/educator guided (marked by an *E which means they are led during an online meeting by me).
If you would like to participate with us (as little or as much as you want), please feel free to contact us. You don't need to do anything but sign up and have your child log on. All information, resources, directions, etc. are posted in the classroom.
