Common Sense Media Takes Your Kids to Camp Virtual
School's out for the summer! Whether your kids are at home, at the pool, or working summer jobs, they probably
have less structure than they're used to. What can you do to help?
How about sending them to summer camp? Well…virtually. Using our new Learning Ratings, it's easy to pick apps, games, and websites that let kids have fun while keeping up their existing skills and building new ones.

OUR LEARNING RATINGS
We rate media on both age-appropriateness and learning potential based on developmental criteria from some of the
nation's leading authorities. We make recommendations about which age each title is appropriate for. Then we evaluate
the learning potential with these ratings: BEST, GOOD, FAIR for learning, or NOT FOR LEARNING.
