FUN OCEAN CAMP IDEAS FOR SUMMER

Ocean Summer Camp

SUMMER KIDS OCEAN CAMP

Lots of us go to the beach for the summer, but what if we bring the ocean to you? This week full of ocean-themed activities makes for a fun Ocean Summer Camp for kids!

Kids will get to learn and play at the same time with these fun projects! Discover the layers of the ocean, how whales stay warm and learn all about beach erosion and more with this summer camp!

OCEAN ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS THIS SUMMER

Summer can be a busy time, so we didn’t add any projects that will take a ton of time or prep to make these activities possible. Most of these can be done quickly, with variations, reflection, and questions extending the activity as you have time to do so. However, if you have the time, feel free to linger and enjoy the activities too!

Save those vacation shells! If you went on vacation this year, or have shells from past vacations, now is the perfect time to use them for this camp!

SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS FOR KIDS

Science learning starts early, and you can be a part of that by setting up science at home with everyday materials. Or you can bring easy science experiments to a group of kids in the classroom!

We find a ton of value in cheap science activities and experiments. All our science experiments use inexpensive, everyday materials you can find at home or source from your local dollar store.

You can set up your science experiments as an activity focusing on exploration and discovery. Make sure to ask kids questions at each step, discuss what is happening and talk about the science behind it.

Alternatively, you can introduce the scientific method, get kids to record their observations, and make conclusions. Read more about the scientific method for kids to help you get started.
