London Camp in a Box

London Camp in a Box allows children from low-income families to have summer camp experiences from the comfort of their own home. Each box contains activities and digital resources for children to complete the activities. We developed four boxes that focus on different interests (art, science, music, and sport) to allow children the ability to extend their interests beyond school.

How the project works

Four different 'Summer Activities Boxes' for children with different and engaging summer camp activities were created and stributed so that children can participate from the comfort of their own homes. Focusing on different interests, such as art, sport, science, and music the boxes aim to spark curiosity and fun times for children.

Project Impact

This initiative distributed 150 'Summer Activities Boxes' to children from low-income backgrounds in London, Ontario. These boxes offered a range of engaging activities across various subjects such as history, science, and arts. These activity boxes inspired them to continue learning throughout the summer via a summer camp-like experience.

Project Mission

London Camp in a Box's goal is to enable children from low-income families to experience summer camp activities and engage in activities that broaden their interests.
