Kids’ camps make summer a time of:discovery and learning

Written by Healthy Living News. Posted in April

April is in the air, and kids across the country are beginning to sense that the end of another school year is close at hand. But what sort of summer do you envision for your child? An exciting time of discovery, enrichment, and learning or an idle period spent indoors, tethered to the latest high-tech gadget? If you chose the former, you’re in luck because many area schools and organizations offer exciting summer camps that help keep kids productively occupied while sharpening their skills in academics, sports, and personal interests of all kinds.

 

Here are some great summer camp options for parents and their kids to explore:
