Summer is the perfect time for children to explore, learn, and grow in exciting ways. Whether you’re homeschooling through the summer or you’re taking time off, that doesn’t mean that learning has to stop!
We know that child-led learning is important. That’s why we created a program that helps them discover their strengths through activities, challenges, and community. This year, Homeschool Resource Co. is thrilled to present a brand-new passion project where we are bringing the co-op experience right into your home.
Introducing…. Virtual Homeschool Summer Camp!
Our Homeschool Summer Camp Program offers a unique opportunity for children to continue their learning journey in a vibrant and immersive environment- your own home!
Homeschool Summer Camp is a twelve-week virtual experience where children will learn from experts and participate in a variety of themed activities that will help them discover new hobbies, passions, or ideas by being fully immersed in an interactive environment.
Explore the themes of homeschool summer camp
But it’s not just the classes! Our camp is packed with engaging activities, contests, and collaborative projects that will inspire children to expand their knowledge, develop essential life skills, and unleash their creativity. The best part? The community experience brings the culture, ideas, and friendship from families like you, around the globe.
According to a study conducted by the U.S. Department of Education, students who engage in live learning experiences outperform those who rely solely on passive learning methods. Live learning allows for immediate feedback, active participation, and real-time interaction, resulting in better comprehension and retention of knowledge.
Let’s dive into the details of this amazing adventure!
A Breakdown of Homeschool Summer Camp
Summer Camp is geared to ages 8-14 or grades 3-8. We wanted to be sure that our camp was an immersive experience for the whole family, so with some parental support, even early elementary-aged kids can participate.
It also goes further than that! We are giving parental support through our once-a-month Parent Classes. We’ve brought experts in for you too, mom and dad!
Every month, each topic is broken into weekly subtopics. Each week, we completely delve into content, downloads, freebies, videos, and more that help get kids excited about the live class. During the live class, they will be led through a hands-on activity. At the end of each week, they’ll be able to complete tasks and enter a contest to win an amazing prize from our instructors to help further their learning!
Research has shown that hands-on activities enhance cognitive development and problem-solving skills in children. Studies have shown that students who participated in hands-on learning activities scored significantly higher on achievement tests compared to those who solely relied on traditional instructional methods.
