Counties Get Creative
with Childcare Solutions
With the fall semester quickly approaching, childcare is a growing concern for many Maryland households. As most school systems have settled on some form of virtual learning for at least the beginning of the school year, many working parents will have to juggle job responsibilities, childcare, and online learning. Counties are stepping up with programs to provide resources for families in need of assistance.

Corporate Partner Corner

AT&T, a MACo Platinum Corporate Partner, is giving children something to look forward to during the pandemic, by hosting a virtual summer camp.

For kids across the country, summer camp is something to look forward to all year long. It’s a time when they connect with friends, try new things, discover untapped talents and grow as individuals. This summer, we’re reimagining the summer camp experience.

Introducing AT&T Summer Camp.

AT&T Summer Camp features free activities, curated from a variety of nonprofits, that engage kids in learning new skills. Kids will be able to cultivate their writing skills with 826 National, code their own games with Scratch and submit videos to Reel Works’ Reel Viral Challenge. And AT&T Summer Camp isn’t just for kids. The whole family can enjoy the experience as every activity will be paired with a WarnerMedia show or movie that brings the activity to life in an entertaining way. A different AT&T Summer Camp activity and entertainment pairing will be spotlighted each week on social media.

While we know this summer will be different than normal, families should still have access to the camp experience. AT&T Summer Camp builds on our Distance Learning & Family Connections Fund, created to give families the tools and connections they need for at-home learning. To support AT&T Summer Camp, we’re contributing more than $5 million to organizations that engage kids in subjects including literacy, STEM, filmmaking and more.

Beginning Wednesday, August 12, and every Wednesday through August, follow @ATTimpact to get the latest AT&T Summer Camp activities and share your family’s experiences using #ATTSummerCamp.
