Have Super-Powered Fun at Home with DC Kids Camp
Chances are you’re home from school and practicing social distancing. By staying inside, you’re doing your part to protect others, which makes you kind of like a superhero! Heroes like Superman and the DC Superhero Girls are known for making sacrifices for the common good and doing everything they can to make the world a better place. That’s why DC Kids Camp is here to make your time at home SUPER!
Starting today, DC Kids is launching an exciting (and totally free) program called DC Kids Camp. They’ve rounded up all their best artists and authors to keep you inspired, creating, and reading while you’re stuck at home. These superstar creators will be sharing video draw-alongs, origami how-tos, and other super-powered ways for you to spend time with your favorite DC characters. Here’s what you need to know!
Everything You Need to Know About DC Kids Camp:
How Can I Join In?
Every day around 10am PT (1pm ET), you and your family can tune in to @DCComicsKids on Twitter or @dckids on Instagram for a video that will help you boost your skills and take a break from your schoolwork. Your family can also subscribe to the DC Family newsletter to have everything delivered directly to your inbox, if that’s more your style.
In addition to the interactive videos, DC Kids Camp will also share awesome activities each day. You’ll get access to blank comic pages, previews of their middle grade novels, and printable activity sheets over the coming weeks. There will always be something new to try – it’s like going to camp…at home!
