Summer time is here! It is a great time to relax and enjoy those “lazy” days! But before you know it, the kids’ boredom will set in, and you will begin hearing, “There’s nothing to do!” We have a few resources for you to put up your parenthood sleeve so you are prepared for those moments.

PLAN NOW!

Summer camps are a GREAT way to keep your kids learning, exploring and creating in the summer time. Whether it’s a one-day camp or a week long, it gives the kids something to look forward to and be excited about.

Aggie Adventure Camps are offered all over the state of Utah. Click here  to find one in your area and get more details.

If you are in the Davis County area, one of the Aggie Adventure Camps offered is at the USU Botanical Center in Kaysville.  There are day camp options for kids as young as 5 years old all the way up to 11.

SPUR of the MOMENT!

A quick way to cool off is to head to a splash pad! Enjoy Utah has a GREAT list of Splash pads around the state. Most are free, but check their list before heading out. Splash pads can be a day of fun, so pack a picnic and the sunscreen!

Summer reading and adventure go hand in hand with the Public Libraries Summer Reading Program. Based on a theme with special classes, attractions, hands-on crafts and more, your little ones will be entertained for free while sneaking in some of that good ol’ education. Check your local library to see what it is offering and when the special events are.
