Many camps are trying to determine how or if they’ll proceed this summer, locked in wait-and-see mode while monitoring the pandemic’s progress and awaiting guidance from state and local health officials. But some Houston-area summer camps have already announced they will move their programming online.

In addition to these options, some Houston-area organizations and businesses are also offering virtual educational programs and camp experiences.

Although these online options might look a little different than the traditional summer camp, these virtual offerings will still help keep kids engaged during the summer months away from school.

We will update this list as more virtual summer programs and virtual educational experiences are announced.

Houston Zoo Camp Zoofari Virtual Camp

The Houston Zoo’s popular program Camp Zoofari is canceled through August 31, 2020 and the zoo itself remains shuttered until further notice. In lieu of its usual summer camp programming, the zoo is now offering a free virtual camp experience on its website, which includes education videos and activities.
