Mini BBS Camp-in-a-Box
“Around the World Week”

Pack your bags and grab your travel journal… The Minis are going on a virtual expedition Around the World!

Pingry Big Blue Summer Mini Camp-in-a-Box is a Mini’s only interactive, age appropriate virtual camp experience. Campers will be able to participate in at least two zoom sessions per day with peers, counselors, and experienced educators! 

Our daily morning meeting (9:00 a.m.) will start with a personal greeting activity and include songs, dancing, story time and more, utilizing the materials in the camp box that are age appropriate and materials that are easily found at home.  The second session of the day (11:00 a.m.) will include educational rotations with specialists, games, storytime, dancing, special guests, and more.  Mini Camp Director, Ms. Eileen and the seasoned Mini Camp counselor, Mr. Josh are going to make it a Zoom to remember, no matter the week!
