What's inside: How to create great summer camp at home experience for your children – on any budget! We will give you a brief overview of what is in "Camp in a Box", as well as some completely FREE resources with activities in the summer camp! Sponsored by Connect Camps.
Summer camp at home
Staying home is the safest place for our family right now, but let's face it, after a while the kids start messing around (well … a lot).
If you are looking for ideas to make a summer camp at home with your children, you have come to the right place! We will show you the best summer camp kit for all inclusive, as well as free to help you create your own summer camp at home!
When it comes to the best value in a summer camp set, Camp in a Box is the winner's hand! This is the closest thing I've found to a real summer camp experience without actually attending a people's camp.
What is a box bearing?
Camp in a Box is a complete day camp experience for children aged K-8 – delivered right to your doorstep! This is literally a camp in a box!
I have fond memories of attending a holiday Bible school every summer as a child and I am so excited to give my children a similar experience – from the comfort and safety of our own home!
Our family received 2 Deluxe Boxes for review and I was impressed!
Connect Camps thoughtfully prepare each box with exactly what you need for each activity. Supplies for each activity are packaged and labeled, and these activity bags are organized into larger bags according to the type of activity (Built-it-Up, Painting, & Science Lab).
Perx box bearing:
- Includes a full week of hands-on activities, Bible study and worship.
- The camp route can be customized to fit your schedule – you go at your own pace!
- Parents can participate as much as they want, or let the counselors in the camp lead the way through the video digital camps.
- This is a great way to spend time together as a family this summer!
Here's what's in the Deluxe Box:
- 4 skill sets for all involved, each with one activity for each day of the week (deliveries included!)
- Access to Dance Party online videos
- An interactive book for studying the Bible
- Camp T-shirt
- Cultural camp set
- Access content in the online camp, with high-energy videos for worship, videos with instructions for activities and more!
In addition to the Deluxe Box, which our family reviews, Connect Camps also offers a basic box, a digital box and a family box – each designed to meet your family's needs and budget.
Why I love boxing as a parent
There are many high-quality activities in each box that entertain children for hours, keep their brains thinking and learning, and nourish their spirits. We made mud, created intricate art and even built miniature catapults!
The best part is that everything you need for all activities is in the box! You do not need to buy additional consumables. Even better, all deliveries are organized by activity and clearly marked.
In addition to the physical box, your Camp in a Box purchase includes access to rich digital content:
- Daily worship through song and dance, led by camp counselors
- Daily Bible study video with the camp pastor
- Instructional videos demonstrating how to set up and complete each activity
- Entertainment activities led by video to move children

Frequently asked questions about box bearing
These are some of my own questions I had before checking out Camp in a Box. I hope they help you get a better idea of why I love him so much!
Does it take a long time for parents to set up and run the camp?
To be honest, this was my biggest concern about the commitment to a whole week of day camp at home. We just finished months of distance learning after all!
The online content perfectly complements the Camp in a Box experience and is designed to make things as easy as possible for parents – the videos guide children through everything and are fun to watch!
Each activity has a 10-15 minute video in which the counselors in the camp demonstrate how to set up the activity, just as if the children had been in a personal camp.
All you have to do as a parent is click play!
Do you have to buy any consumables for the activities?
Nope! Deliveries are included! The only extras you need are scissors, pencil and glue – things you probably already have at home. Everything else is already in the field, grouped by activities and clearly marked.
This is my favorite part of the box camp – it's really all-encompassing! Just open the box and start right away!
Are discounts or coupons available?
Yes !! I am so excited that I can offer you, my readers, a $ 5 coupon for your camp on purchase!
