Summer Activities Guide
Engage your child through making,
tinkering, taking things apart, creating.
Learn through doing.
Most of us are looking forward to summer
vacation, being outside more often and enjoying
some down time. But for students of all ages,
summer can also mean losing the academic
ground they gained during the school year.
You can help your children enjoy summer and stay
engaged in learning by keeping them active and
taking advantage of what we have in the area.
The following are low and no cost options.
