Most summer camps to be held virtually due to pandemic

In “A New California", parents, the good news is your kids can still go to summer camp this year.

The maybe not so great news... they'll most likely do so at home.

“It’s either go to be online in a virtual setting or there may be some camps that can open,” says Sarah Auerswald, co-founder of, a website that's a wealth of resources for families, with a specialized focus on summer camps.

The site has a list of hundreds of summer camps, most local, that are turning virtual for the Summer of 2020.

From tech to photography, art, athletics, dance, cooking, theater, even coding, Auerswald says there's a camp for kids of all ages.

One of the unforeseen benefits of going virtual is everyone is welcome.

“Because online we can be anywhere and still have a conversation together and do a class together. One of the coding camps has kids from all around the world,” says Auerswald.

Prices and the length of camps vary, from day to weeks.
