Get Ready for Camp Radio Flyer!

Calling all families! We know that summer feels different this year with many of our favorite summer activities canceled, postponed, or looking unfamiliar. Despite all of the changes we’ve experienced this year, there is still plenty of room for quality time, smiles, and warm memories this summer – and Radio Flyer is here to help! Pack your bags, grab your sunscreen, load up your wagon, and kick those imaginations into high gear…we’re headed to Camp Radio Flyer.

Today, we are thrilled to announce our first ever virtual summer camp for families, Camp Radio Flyer! During this one week free virtual summer camp, we will be sharing new ideas, crafts, activities, and more daily on our Instagram page and website. Each day will have its own special camp theme so little Campers will wake up enthused for a new surprise each morning. Camp will be in session from July 27 through July 31, so be sure to follow @radioflyerinc on Instagram before then for all the latest updates.

Little Campers will have a blast attending summer camp right from home. And parents, whether you’re more excited for the structured play ideas for your kids or for the nostalgic feelings of your own camp days, we know you’ll have fun too!

To help prepare you and your family for Camp Radio Flyer, we’ve compiled a list of some materials to have on hand. Most of these supplies can likely be found around the house already, but we’ll be sure to provide some alternative directions throughout our camp week just in case.

  • Multi-colored construction paper
  • Your favorite coloring utensils (crayons, markers, pencils, paint – any will do!)
  • Scissors
  • Yarn or string
  • Tape
  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Sponge(s)
  • A couple of small buckets or containers
  • Your favorite set of Radio Flyer wheels

To enhance the fun, we will also be hosting a Camp Radio Flyer photo sweepstakes! Show us your favorite moments throughout the week by posting your pictures on Instagram and Twitter using #CampRadioFlyer for your chance to win the Ultimate Summer Prize Pack – your choice of a wagon, tricycle and scooter. You can enter up to once a day between July 27 and July 31 – one post using #CampRadioFlyer counts as one entry. Read the full sweepstakes rules.

T-11 days until Camp Radio Flyer begins…we cannot wait to see you there, Campers and Counselors!
