The Summer of 2020 has canceled a lot of our favorite activities but there are still fun ways to make memories this year! Have you heard about Walmart Drive-in Movie Nights starting in August? They are also launching Camp by Walmart. It’s a free virtual camp that you can enjoy in your living room. We also have these Free Summer Activities for Kids you can check out!
Walmart Drive-in Movie Nights
We have a local Drive-In theater in our area and we try to make a couple of shows per year. We grab some chairs and bedding for the back of the truck and make it a fun experience. Our kids love watching a movie outside and I love the nostalgia of it! And now, Walmart is launching a really fun experience for families! They will be transforming 160 store parking lots to host Drive-In movies!
How fun does that sound? Walmart just released more details about the Drive-In movies! The movies will be starting THIS WEEKEND and all the movies will be family-friendly! The event is FREE – however, you will have to get tickets! You will not be able to get tickets at the gate so make sure to get them before you go. Gates will open at 6 pm and the film begins at 7:30 pm. No late entry is allowed.

Camp by Walmart
Is camp a big part of your kid’s summer plans? We have so many great memories from camp but our kids will not be able to go this year. Camp by Walmart is a virtual camp that will allow kiddos to enjoy camp activities at their home! The camp counselors will be Drew Barrymore, Neil Patrick Harris, LeBron James, Idina Menzel and Todd Oldham. Camp will include arts and crafts, fitness, and other activities that will keep them entertained. Get ready, camp will start July 8 and there are 50 Camp by Walmart activities for you with the Walmart App.
Some of the activities at camp include:
- “The Great Family Challenge,” which features various family-bonding activities, including actress Drew Barrymore taking campers through a make-up tutorial and basketball star LeBron James leading participants through mental and physical activities with help from his I PROMISE School educators
- A morning kick-off with Head Camp Counselor, actor Neil Patrick Harris, who sends families through one of 14 camp challenges, from “Neil’s Charades” to musical Mad Libs
- “Skills Camp” is a talent show which features experts teaching new skills, like singer and actress Idina Menzel, who showcases her singing skills to campers
- And, designer Todd Oldham reimagines “Smarts and Crafts,” which teaches campers about creativity through the lens of arts, crafts and fashion
