Digital Camps: A Learning Experience for Both Campers & Staff

Learn how The Dawes Arboretum in Newark, Ohio turned their traditional 8 week summer day camp into a 6 week "Camp in a Box" adventure, with an online component utilizing both zoom and google classroom.

The session will conclude with an open ended discussion on reaching children from under-served backgrounds for virtual programming in light of technological accessibility concerns.

A Letter from the SMA President 

As we approach the first of our virtual conference webinars, we wanted to provide an update to how our membership will function this year in light of the changes to our annual conference.  

In years past, a conference attendee received a complimentary membership.  As we will not have an in person conference in 2021, we’ve decided to extend the membership of our 2020 conference attendees by one year.  And while we have decided to provide free registration to our webinars this year, those who choose to donate will also receive a complimentary membership.  

Members will have access to our members-only portions of the SMA website, which include video-recordings of a selection of conference sessions, as well as any resources our conference presenters share from their sessions, including powerpoints, sample documents, and more.  

Thank you for your support and patience as we navigate these challenging times and do our best to serve small museums in the mid-Atlantic region and beyond.

Sincerely,

Derek Finn, President
