"Camp Iredell at Home" Kits

CI at Home Registration

"Camp Iredell @ Home" is a new take-home activity kit for kids ages 5-13. Kits are $25 per week. There are kits available through the week of August 7 (last day to register is July 29), but quantities are limited so get yours today!

Weekly schedules will be provided for activities that are planned each day. The schedule will be similar each week, but the topics and projects will change. We have tried to keep a flexible schedule in mind, so many of these activities can be done any time, when it is convenient for your family. 

Included in the Camp Iredell @ Home kits

  • "This Weeks Kit" video: what is included and what each item is for.
  • One "Classic" Camp Shirt: we will be reviving our camp shirts from previous summers, and including one per camper, per summer (not weekly). Campers will receive a camp shirt with their first kit (week can vary), based on the size selected during registration.
  • 2 Arts & Crafts Projects each week.
    • Supplies are included, except for basic items like crayons, pencils, tape, or glue that most have at home.
    • We will also have an instructional video to accompany each project, completed by the camp staff
  • 2 or more "Fun" Items related to summer fun or summer camp.

  • Recipe Card
    • A kid-friendly recipe will be provided each week, for kids to make at home. Food supplies are not included. Parent supervision recommended.
