These activities will spark your curiosity and have you strapping on your thinking caps! Use your imagination and be amazed with new experiments each week.



These online children’s recreation programming activities are hosted by MSVU Athletics and Recreation Day Camp staff!  The goal is to have some fun, learn something new, and challenge your mind. These activities are “use at your own risk,” so don’t work beyond your capability and seek help if you need it. Remember, safety first! Children should not participate in these activities without the permission of a parent or guardian. We hope you enjoy this free programming!
