Blue Sky Kids is also offering Combo Camps, which engage groups of campers for 3 hours per day with a variety of activities for a daycamp-like experience in an area that they are passionate about. These Combo Camps are children’s chance to go to camp with their friends, safely and virtually from home. Created by special request, combo camps also offer an in-person hybrid component, providing detailed activity descriptions for an optional socially distant in-person gathering of camp groups at the end of each week. Combo Camp runs for 3 hours a day (hours are flexible, based on your availability) and are offered in one week increments, for a minimum of two weeks total, for same-age camp groups of 4-8 children ages 5-15.
