Online Summer Camps & Classes Are Here!

Ready, Set, Summer! We’re thrilled to announce the launch of Online Summer Camps, plus the first-ever Online Summer Camp Fair (register for free here). KidPass is offering families the easiest way to discover and book summer camps and classes nationwide for kids ages 2 to 18. Though camps this year look a little different, kids can still socialize, learn a new skill (or two!) and have tons of fun—no duffel bag required.

You can even do more than one camp at the same time! Classes can reoccur for a series of weeks so kids can see familiar faces, or you can choose to drop-in as often …
