Camp TV, the public media series for kids ages 5-10, brings the magic, learning and fun of the day camp experience to your living room. Season 3 added 10 new episodes (airing weekdays at 12 p.m. and online at camptv.org). This live-action summer series debuted in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which shut down summer camps across the country. Offering fun activities and learning adventures for kids missing the summer camp experience, it’s led by a head counselor played by exuberant Broadway performer Zachary Noah Piser (Dear Evan Hansen, Wicked), which guides campers in their learning through play.
Comedian, writer and filmmaker Mia Weinberger (Molly Shannon’s Tilly the Trickster, The Notorious RBG) joins Zach as a co-advisor in the new season. Zach kicks off each episode with a welcome song, then the theme for the day is announced, which in Season 3 will include Unicorn Day, Carnival Day, Magic Day, and more.
Join the dynamic Camp TV duo as they guide campers through a variety of activities, exploring nature, math, science, arts, movement, storytelling, writing, self-care, and more. Each episode includes special appearances from experts and teacher artists from leading cultural and educational institutions in the New York metro area and beyond, as well as a narration segment featuring a book of the day. The series will also spotlight content from PBS stations across the country. Visit the official site, camptv.org.
