Providence Country Day School Offers Virtual Summer Camp


 East Providence—Providence Country Day School is the first school in Rhode Island to offer virtual summer camp. Available to campers from ages four to fifteen, PCD’s Virtual Summer Camp is safe, highly interactive, and offers an easy, at-home way to keep kids engaged over the summer. PCD Virtual Summer Camp will offer workshops in visual arts, performing arts, culinary arts, and the sciences. Camp will take place from June 22 to July 31; details and registration are available at providencecountryday.org/summer-programs.

PCD’s Virtual Summer Camp will run each day from 9:30am to 1:00pm with a lunch break in the middle when campers can continue to connect with friends or go offline. Each day includes three fifty-minute workshops with highly trained staff teaching printmaking, yoga, cooking, bubble making and more. Campers will connect to the camp using the Zoom’s secure video conferencing platform. Every week campers will be given a Treasure Box of supplies that they will use at home to make various projects and crafts. PCD’s Virtual Summer Camp offers a chance for kids to socialize with other kids and take back summer from COVID-19. In the event that social distancing guidelines are lifted, PCD’s Virtual Summer Camp is structured to easily transition to an on-site camp program on our beautiful 30-acre campus with state-of-the-art turf fields and two outdoor pavilions.

Providence Country Day School, established in 1923, is a college-preparatory school serving students in grades six through twelve. Through a vigorous hands-on program of academics, visual and performing arts, competitive athletics, and service, PCD students develop as independent and critical thinkers, resourceful creators, and resilient innovators. PCD's mission and values are upheld by a faculty distinguished by academic excellence and deep personal commitment. Deep and lasting relationships are at the very core of PCD’s teaching and learning. PCD’s diverse student population is drawn from more than 45 communities throughout southeastern New England and around the world.
