Capstpne's Virtual Summer Camp Adventure

From April 2024 through September 2024, children can participate in Capstone’s Virtual Summer Camp Adventure through the bi-weekly choice boards. The choice boards are filled with activities around reading, learning, creating, coding, science, moving, technology and more.  

There is something for everyone and every age.  The awesome thing about a choice board is every child can choose their very own summer camp adventure.  Talk through the different choices they have for learning, reading, creating and more. 

Note that some of the activities may require additional materials and resources if your child chooses to do that particular   activity. We recommend that you look through the choice board beforehand to get an idea of what the activities may involve.  And many require no additional materials. Read the Family Letter for more information.
