The Mama & Family Expo Launches Free Online Family Camp

The Mama & Family Expo Launches Free Online Family Camp

The 6th Annual Mama & Family Expo, originally scheduled to happen this Friday May 1 & Saturday May 2, 2020 at Central Park Athletics has been postponed, set to be rescheduled with a new date TBD. But that is not stopping event organizer Teanna McKay from creating a virtual event, bringing fun and activities into the homes of local families.

The Windsor- Essex (W.E) Family Fun Camp is a virtual camp featuring a collective of positive, interactive, engaging videos (Camp Sessions) such as DIY and How to Videos, sing-alongs, cooking classes, arts & crafts, workouts, story time, dance parties and much more! 

The idea behind the camp is to bring some of the activities that would have been at the expo this spring into the homes of local residents. The Camp will feature local businesses who were set to exhibit at the Mama & Family Expo, entrepreneurs, artists and everyday friends sharing a video they created to bring some smiles to the families of W.E.

“When I first learned that we were going to have to postpone the Mama & Family Expo due to the current Covid 19 Social Distancing requirements, it was heartbreaking, but as an event organizer, it is my top priority to deliver a safe, enjoyable and rewarding experience for all my guests, exhibitors, volunteers & team,” says McKay. “I know there are many Mamas-to-be, new parents and families that look forward to this event every year, which is why I want to assure everyone the event will happen as soon as we are allowed to host a gathering, and there will never be a better time for us to come together and “bring back the village” to Windsor-Essex as when we are all safe and able to meet again.”

The Camp Session videos will be available on the Mama Expo social media accounts, including Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

If someone would like to create a video and become a Camp Counselor for the W.E Family Fun Camp, McKay adds, “We still have lots of room for engaging videos, educational and entertaining ideas. You don’t have to be a business owner, a Mom who can teach a fun craft, a Dad with a DIY video or a Kid who has something fun for other kids, please contact me directly if you have something you would like to do for the camp and let’s bring some smiles to the families in our community together!”
