Nothing to do over summer? Think again

Summer. It's a time to chill, let the brain just take a rest and forget how to think until the start of the school year. Or is it? Consider this, a summer's worth of video games and television is an option, but that presents the opportunity to let life slip by unnoticed. Rather, there are many options kids and teens have in the way of summer programs and events. Many of which can be spent with families. Take, for instance, the Highlands Center for Natural History. Among many summer opportunities, it offers its annual F.U.N. Camp. Mara Kack, education director, said that the camp gets kids exploring outside, making new friends and working on teamwork and peer relationships. "The overall mission is to get them comfortable with being outside, get them exploring and help them initiate the ability to free play outdoors and during that, learn a little bit about their local environment and also how to live in it," Kack said. "Summer should be spent outside getting dirty, inside has its wonderful things for sure, but finding that balance of being comfortable outside, being okay with being outside is important." The Highlands Center programs are part of the grand list of opportunities listed here in these six pages. Browse through and find your child's type of summer fun.
