(July 6, 2020 – New York, NY) — Today, TIME for Kids launches Camp TFK, a new daily resource of free activities to keep kids active, entertained and engaged with trusted educational content throughout the summer.
“For 25 years, parents and teachers have trusted TIME for Kids to find the right balance between entertaining kids and educating them,” said TIME for Kids editor in chief Andrea Delbanco. “This summer isn’t business as usual for most families. Camp TFK can help parents entertain their kids with content they can trust and feel good about, that requires little to no supervision.”
Curated by TIME for Kids editors, the free Camp TFK newsletter delivers a schedule of activities each weekday morning across a wide range of interests and skill levels, including arts and crafts, sports and games, performance skills, scientific concepts, and storytelling.
Camp TFK is designed to be accessible to anyone, and all featured activities require minimal special supplies beyond everyday household items. At the beginning of the week, Camp TFK subscribers will be sent a preview of the following week’s activities and any recommended supplies to help parents prepare.
Camp TFK is the latest offering from TIME for Kids that aims to help families, kids and teachers navigate distance learning and school and camp closures as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. In March, the trusted in-classroom publication was made available digitally, for free, and in multiple languages including Spanish and Chinese, for the first time with the launch of the TIME for Kids digital library, which has been accessed by over 340,000 people worldwide. For the first time, TIME for Kids also extended its editorial publishing calendar, which typically concludes in May, through July to help keep kids engaged and connected throughout the summer months.
