Jason Auld, owner of Mountain Recreation, loves taking his 3 kids outdoors during the summer season. “There are great flat water kayaking and SUP as a fun family friendly activity. Short distance backpacking is a great way to get kids outside and blow their minds with nature. Just need to focus on keeping it achievable, fun and interesting. Often you don’t need to hike in more than a mile or two to really feel like your way out there. The less taxing and grueling it is the more the kids will enjoy it.” Click here for information about their rental programs if you want to rent a SUP or kayak.
Perhaps you’re looking for a summer camp, there are still lots of great programs happening, click here for a post from earlier this spring on the Summer Camp Fair, still time to check out the Food Love Project day camps, Art classes, Fox Walkers or The Center for Arts programs. Perhaps you want to be creative, try stopping byThe Artist Workshop, either for a class or their drop in open session and leave with a new art project.
Maybe you want to learn a specific new skill, take your child to a cooking class at Briar Patch Co-op (Summer Pies with Homemade Ice Cream or Grilled Pizza) or check out their Co+op Explorers Fruit and Veggie Passports.
