OETA Camp Week

OETA Camp Week is an opportunity for the entire family to engage in summer fun and learning time at home from July 26-30.

Activities bring family members together with simple materials that are typically found around the house. Using a combination of television programming and PBS Learning Media each family member can engage in a daily learning experience just for them. Create a free PBS Learning Media account to get started. Find out how to watch OETA and our 24/7 PBS KIDS channel in your area here.

Camp Experiences

  • Camp Family - Parents and kids build from Parenting Minutes currently airing on the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel. Parents will use their PBS Learning Media accounts to access additional resources that will help them support their early age children based on the short episodes.
  • Ready to Learn Camp - For early learners (ages 3 to 7) and is based on PBS KIDS shows such as Odd Squad, Ready Jet Go!, and The Ruffman Show that covers a range of STEM and literacy concepts.
  • Camp TV - Take your kid (ages 8-11) on a full camp day experience lead by head counselor and Broadway star Zachary Noah Piser. Your child will learn through play, from math and science to creative writing and movement, and more.
  • Sooner Camp - Build on OETA's local documentaries Tulsa Race Massacre: 100 Years Later and Back In Time: The State of Sequoyah. This camp covers Oklahoma history topics for youth ages 12 to 14.

Preschool Teachers Can Use a PBS KIDS Transmedia Curriculum Supplement to Support Young Children’s Mathematics Learning (2013, Pasnik & Llorente): Results of a randomized controlled trial indicate that Ready To Learn content improved children’s understanding of early math, and increased educator content knowledge.
