Camp Khan Kids is a fun, free 4-week virtual summer camp for children ages 2-7. Starting July 2020, the camp guides parents and children in a playful educational journey using Khan Academy Kids materials.
Every Monday in July, parents who are signed up for the Khan Academy Kids app will receive an email announcing the week’s themes and a self-paced schedule of suggested activities for reading, learning, and playing. The daily schedule includes 5 activities per day, but families can mix and match based on what works best for each child. Weekly themes include Water Week, Music & Movement Week, Animals & Nature Week, and Arts & Crafts Week.
How To Participate
Everyone who has downloaded the Khan Academy Kids app and has signed up with their email address is eligible for this free program. Emails with a link to self-paced schedules of themed activities will be sent to our app users every Monday in July.
Camp Khan Kids materials consist of Khan Academy Kids Circle Time videos on YouTube, educational lessons and books in the mobile app, downloadable printable worksheets, and suggestions for hands-on activities during playtime.
If parents wish to participate in Camp Khan Kids but have not yet signed up for the Khan Academy Kids app, they can download the app for free on iPhone, iPad, Google Play, or Amazon and register for a free parent account.
