Free Virtual School And Summer Camps

Are your kids driving you nuts yet?? With school closures due to Covid19, parents are having to take on an additional role- as teacher (and 24/7 snack B). But, don’t worry, Varsity Tutors is helping parents with the education part, by providing fun online learning, all day, for FREE!

If your kid is like mine, they are less than enthusiastic about homeschooling. I try to make it fun, but I’m no teacher, and I work from home, so finding the time to do it all is really freaking hard! I’m just lucky she’s only 5, because if I had to teach sixth grade math, we’d be in trouble. Have you see the way they do division these days?

The good news is, she actually enjoys the Virtual School Day programs, because they offer movement classes, science experiments, fairy tales and more!

Free Virtual School

Virtual School Day provides students with free live, online instruction each week. Each class is led by an expert tutor with experience in the course topic, as well as familiarity with virtual instruction. Classes refresh weekly, with age-appropriate options for grades K-12. All 100+ current classes can be found here: https://www.varsitytutors.com/virtual-school-calendar.

Some popular classes are “Intro to Spanish for Kids”, “Coolest Women in History”, “Java Programming Basics”, and “The Story of Your Favorite Fairy Tales”. Thousands of parents and students have already given exceptional ratings!

Free Virtual Summer Camp

To supplement Virtual School Day, they also offer Virtual Summer Camps to support students and parents that will likely continue to be impacted through the summer.

Virtual Summer Camps: Each half-day summer camp will be a week long, with enrichment-based classes in subjects like foreign languages, chess, theater, coding, Minecraft, how to be a detective, photography, and more. We already have 200 camps available for registration. These live, interactive classes will be taught by expert instructors vetted through Varsity Tutors’ platform.

My little one all ready for a Virtual School Day.

Why I believe you should add it to your list of homeschool activities:

  • It’s totally free
  • They have incredible camps. Some of the most popular so far are: “Award-Winning Web Design”, “All About Dinosaurs”, “Theatre for Young Performers”, and “Mind And Body Connection”
  • Unlike many resources, these camps are not only totally free, but also live AND ongoing, so children can get to know their expert instructors and have regular programming
  • Varsity Tutors created online tutoring back in 2014. They have delivered nearly 5 million hours of instruction since inception. They also have 40,000 expert instructors on our platform covering more than 2,500 different subjects.

Children need to learn and parents don’t always have the time (or patience) to take on the role of teacher! I’m so grateful for Varsity Tours for taking a little weight off my shoulders during this stressful time! Little ones are like sponges. Let’s fuel their minds with positive, fun, lessons!
