DALLAS—With summer plans disrupted because of the coronavirus pandemic, AT&T is putting a different spin on the children’s tradition of summer camp with its own version, AT&T Summer Camp.
The initiative is an extension of AT&T’s Distance Learning & Family Connections Fund that was created to provide families with tools and connections needed for at-home learning during the school year. AT&T Summer Camp will provide free activities curated from a variety of nonprofits for kids to virtually engage in and learn new skills.
AT&T is donating $5 million to the participating organizations so that kids can engage in content that covers STEM, literacy, filmmaking and more. Among the announced offerings will be writing skills programs from 826 National, game coding from Scratch and filmmaking from Reel Viral Challenge. Activities will be paired with a WarnerMedia show or movie to further enhance the experience. AT&T will highlight a different activity and entertainment pairing each week on social media.
AT&T Summer Camp begins on June 17 and will offer new content every Wednesday through August.
