Choose from Camp YouTube’s four themes: STEM, arts, sports and adventure. Each theme has two curated video playlists: one geared toward teens, and another for younger kids. For example, teens experiencing the STEM camp will be directed to videos like “Solar System 101” from National Geographic, “Everything You Need to Start Programming!” and a “How to Make a Lemon Battery” tutorial. Younger STEM enthusiasts will see videos on the YouTube Kids app, like coding lessons from toy company Goldieblox and a “How to Make Slime” video from PBS Kids.

Other themes present corresponding videos and activities. Adventure camp “brings the outside in,” teaching kids about nature and wildlife. Arts camp covers art history, writing dance, music and other creative pursuits. The sports camps feature videos on several sports and wellness topics, but basketball lovers are in for extra excitement — the NBA, WNBA and Jr. NBA have partnered with Camp YouTube to develop basketball exercises and drills. More information can be found at the Camp YouTube website.
