Every year I come to Camp I Am Special and have the best week ever. This year, however, things were much different. Luckily, there was Virtual Camp.
Even being stuck inside and social distancing from others, I was able to log on to Facebook and join some Camp fun! I got to connect with old friends and participate in activities that normally happen at Camp, like arts and crafts. Pulling out old Camp shirts and visiting themes from past years really put a smile on my face- I felt included. Thank you, Virtual Camp 2020!
A Very Happy Camper
Each week Camp I Am Special hosted Virtual Camp events through Facebook Live, such as arts and crafts, movement sessions, learning to cook, and life skills events. Campers had the opportunity to interact with friends through questions of the day and commenting on Facebook Live events. Themes from past summers were visited with interactive events changing for each theme. At the end of the summer, Campers were able to submit their talent, creating a perfect Talent Show video to end Virtual Camp 2020!
Did you miss out on the fun? All events are available to watch on the Camp I Am Special YouTube channel!
