Listen to a series of fun at-home summer camp activities and projects, upbeat family-friendly music and more on a new SiriusXM show: Camp KPL. Beginning on Monday, June 1st and running throughout the summer, Camp KPL will air weekdays from 12 pm to 3 pm ET on SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live (Ch. 78), and each show will be available On Demand for two weeks.
With some summer camps cancelled due to coronavirus concerns, Camp KPL will give children and their families a virtual worry-free option to stay home, explore new activities outside, get creative and remain active all summer long. It’s hard for kids to imagine a summer without friends, outdoor fun, and the freedom that comes with camp. The hosts of Kids Place Live, however, are here to bring joy to your backyard or living room by expanding your ideas about summer playtime and how to make the most out of these unique circumstances.
Camp KPL contributors will consist of all Kids Place Live hosts who will lead virtual activities, expanding imaginations through theater of the mind, and will take call-ins from listeners. Other features include daily story time; a mix of recorded and new stories; a kid’s comedy club where children can call in to tell their favourite jokes; and daily missions from award-winning Kids Place Live host Absolutely Mindy. Mindy’s missions include fun daily tasks kids can do at home rain or shine.
Listeners can also hear GRAMMY Award-winning kids’ musicians and outdoor experts The Okee Dokee Brothers share songs and ideas for safe summertime activities kids and families can do, including cleaning up a neighbourhood park, birdwatching, picnicking, and more.
The challenge of trying to become a record-breaker is a fun way to keep kids entertained at home, and Camp KPL’s segment “At-Home Challenges with GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS”, includes a collection of world records kids and families can try safely at home.
Plus, Kids Place Live also offers parents a simple solution to summertime cabin fever with Instant Naptime, a five-hour loop of lullaby songs curated by Kids Place Live. The channel has always played lullaby music during the overnight hours, but this is a soothing way families can access it On Demand at any time on the SiriusXM app.
