WHAT WILL YOUR KIDS DO THIS SUMMER?
As the school year rapidly comes to an end and summer begins, families around the city are looking for things to do.
We all love spending time with our kids, but sometimes it can be a challenge to keep them entertained 24/7, and you shouldn't have to! Who remembers growing up, the days of being outside from morning to night. Today is much different! Technology has contributed to a reduction in physical activity. Rather than have the kids spend their summer hunched over a gadget, or in front of the TV, there are a TON of camps, activities and events to choose from. In addition to the benefits of keeping the kids active, it will also save you from hearing those grueling words, 'I'M BORED'!
