Making Your Child’s Summer Special
Summer’s on the way and along with it are high expectations of loads of sunshine, fun,
friends and outdoor action. Keep your kids active and entertained this summer by coming
up with a summer fun plan with loose structure of day trips, nature-centric activities, cool
classes and maybe a session or two of summer camp to fill out those steamy weeks and
keep your frisky little ones off the couch and away from techie distractions.
The perfect place for fun in the sun surrounded by piles of pals, summer camp is a timehonored American summertime tradition. With masses of kids’ favorite outdoor activities
rolled into happy weeks of swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, camping and arts and
crafts, summer camp is a magical combination of friends, fun and new experiences.
Back to Nature
Whether you head over to the local pond, down to the shore or off into the woods, summer
is the perfect time for kids to connect with nature. Research has shown that children
exposed to nature early on tend to develop more of a concern for the earth and to have
more green habits as they grow up. So, meander through your local nature trails, teach
them how to bait a hook, go shell hunting, pick some berries or grab some binoculars
for bird watching adventures. You all can learn something about local wildlife while
spending fulfilling hours as a family.
Vacations don’t have to break the bank to make summer days magical. Local day trips or
short overnight adventures can bring the family together just as well as long trips and can
be a lot less stressful. Let your kids help plan a mini-getaway by bringing out brochures
or surfing around on the web. With a little research, you may be surprised at the wealth
of kid-friendly museums, parks or even historic sites that are within a few hours’ drive of
Around the Town
Wherever you live, there are sure to be super summertime kids’ activities. Check the local
paper, town recreation flyers, public library websites and schedules for nearby zoos and
museums; you’re sure to find plenty of workshops, day trips, movies, classes and other
activities for the youngsters. Sign them up for the library’s summer reading program, see
if the local community theater has a kids’ program or just tote them off to that hot weather
necessity, swimming lessons.
