This summer Cave Springs Camp will be offering a camp in a box program to provide camp inspired activities in an at home setting. We will be putting together custom packages that will include camp swag, at home activity materials, easy to follow instructions, and opportunities for connection to the wider camp community. Our boxes will come with everything your campers need to enjoy some summer camp fun from home. With purchase of a box you will also have access to optional online components that you will be able to access to connect with familiar camp staff each week.

How Does Camp in a Box Work?

We are planning to release 3 unique boxes throughout the course of the summer. Boxes will be released every 2 weeks:
Box #1

Pick Up/Delivery: Week of July 13

Box #2:
Pre-order by: Sunday July 12

Box #3:

Contents

Every box will include camp swag items, a FEATURE activity, and a variety of other camp inspired games and activities. In addition, our camp staff will host video sessions with instructions for each included activity. Your campers can choose to complete activities under the guidance of our staff or independently in their own time! Video sessions are not a mandatory part of participation in the Camp in a Box program but are a fun way to see some familiar staff faces and connect with the wider camp community!!

Boxes will come with materials for 1 camper. Additional campers can be added up to 4 total campers per box. You will have the choice of a “Basic” box or a box with the inclusion of a 2020 camp T-shirt.

Ordering

You will be able to pre-order boxes via our online registration platform. The number of available boxes will be limited each week. https://cavespringscamp.campbrainregistration.com/
