To infinity and beyond with these Free Buzz Lightyear activities perfect for your summer space camp!
Space Camp For Fun Summer Learning
With summer upon us, many parents are looking for summer camps for their children as a way for them to have fun, explore, and extend their learning. But summer camps can be costly, and not every child wants to travel or be away from home for an extended period.
Did you know that You ARE An Artist Clubhouse members can enjoy space camp anytime from the comforts of their own home?
What’s more, you can learn How To Create An Affordable Space Camp At Home This Summer with just a few easy steps! Most traditional art camps may cost $200-$250. But with the You ARE An Artist Clubhouse membership, your entire family can enjoy a full year of over 700+ art lessons and companion workbooks with planners, book recommendations, fast facts, biographies, and overviews for the same investment! Plus, you can access all of the lessons at your convenience!
Choose the day or week you want to host your summer camp. There are so many space art lessons to choose from:
- Solar System
- Space Exploration
- Solar Eclipse
- and Moon Missions art courses
You’ll need a starter set of chalk pastels, a pack of construction paper, and Nana’s video art lessons! Add in some fun planet-shaped sugar cookies, cake pops, or cake to make this space camp even more memorable!

Buzz Lightyear Activities
We had a load of fun with Nana’s FREE Buzz Lightyear lesson. My daughter’s creativity shone through with her “Fairy Bummblee Buzz,” space dolphin, moon, Saturn, and space shark… Let those artists choose how, what colors, and anything else they want to add. Why? Because as Nana always says, “You ARE the artist!”
So remember, there is no right or wrong way to do space summer camp. Do what works best for your family. Let your kids choose which lessons they want to create and follow their lead. You’ll be surprised at how much learning and fun can happen when creativity flows, and I think Buzz Lightyear agrees!
