FREE Summer Camp at Home Planner {with 9 Weekly Themes & Activity Ideas}

Summer camps and school holiday activities may be cancelled this summer but there are still plenty of ways for kids to have fun.  How about creating your own summer camp at home?  Just grab our free printable Summer Camp At Home Planner which has 9 fun weekly themes your child will love and plenty of amazing activity suggestions.

Creating your own kids summer camp at home isn't nearly as daunting a task as you might imagine.  Just pick a theme for each week and plan some fun activities around it.

You could spend one week learning about something fun like pirates, then the next week learn about dinosaurs.

Sit down with the kids and ask them what they're interested in, or just take some of our ideas and plan out your weeks.

Summer camp is a great opportunity for kids to do something different, to learn about new things and discover new interests.  Here's how to recreate that at home.

The 9 weekly themes featured in this pack are:

  • Space Week
  • Disney Week
  • Super Hero Week
  • Pirates Week
  • Under the Sea Week
  • Dinosaur Week
  • Olympics Week
  • Steam Week
  • Hawaiian Week

Each theme has a list of activity suggestions, such as these ones for Under the Sea week:
  • Learn about ocean life
  • Salt water density experiment
  • Ocean zone in a bottle
  • Make ocean slime
  • Make paper plate jellyfish
  • Make a fish mobile
  • Paint ocean rocks
  • Do ocean yoga

There are lots of other suggestions, up to 14 for each theme.  The activities are divided into three categories:
  • Learn & Explore
  • Fun & Creative
  • Move

Suggested movies to watch and podcasts to listen to are included for each theme too.  A blank page is included for you to plan out your own themed weeks too if you wish.

Here is an example of the weekly themes with suggested activities:

A handy supplies and resources list is included so you can note down shopping lists and any other ideas you've found.  Then there is a weekly meal plan sheet so you can plan out all the meals and snacks for each week.  Why not go the whole hog and plan some themed lunches, snacks and baking for the kids too?
