So your kid’s sleep away camp plans aren’t going to happen this summer and you’re trying to figure out how to keep them entertained while you work from home? Good news for all the Potterheads out there – a Hogwarts-themed virtual camp is here to save the day. You can now send your child to Harry Potter O.W.L.s Camp.
Consider your child accepted to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, well the online version anyway. This virtual program from CampCloud, a service that creates weekly digital programs to keep kids entertained all summer, has come up with this Harry Potter camp intended for kids ages eight to 14. Class starts this week and you can choose the week you want and either a half-day session from 1pm to 4pm EST ($135) or a full-day from 10am to 4pm ($275) and there are even discounts for registering two kids.
The curriculum includes Potions with Professor Snape, identifying magical plants in Herbology, and getting tips from Hagrid in Care of Magical Creatures. There are even extracurriculars like Quidditch and before everything gets going, campers will be sorted into houses for the full experience. It all sounds pretty magical and the best part? It’s totally socially distant.
