Send kids to summer camp without leaving home, with help from C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital

Games, crafts, videos and more in store at Camp Little Victors, www.mottchildren.org/camp

Ann Arbor, Mich. — Send your kids to summer camp without worrying about stocking up on bug spray or packing a suitcase: sign up for C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital’s Camp Little Victors.

Each week for six weeks, participants in the free virtual summer camp program get an e-mail full of fun summer ideas from our experts at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. Parents and kids can learn a new game, try a new healthy recipe or find out the best ways to stay safe during summer activities.

The first 1,000 campers to sign up at www.mottchildren.org/camp get a free Camp Little Victors T-shirt. Camp Little Victors begins July 8 and ends Aug. 16.

“We wanted to help families make the most of their summer, and help parents out with tips from our nutrition, child-life and safety specialists here at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. Because we do so many things here in our hospital to keep our patients and families entertained and active, our experts have great ideas for fun at home, too,” says Dan Fischer, director of child and family life services at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.

“We’ve got a great lineup of features for our summer campers this year.”

Each week will also include opportunities to win a prize for participating in featured activities, including a special grand prize iPad Mini awarded to a lucky camper who participates in activities throughout the six-week program.

Planned this year are activities like yoga, crafts, a visit from our Chef Stephen with some healthy cooking ideas and much, much more.
