Summer is fast approaching, and kids are almost out of school!

How do you plan on staying sane and keeping them busy, safe and healthy?

CG Chat says:

Mindy Ritter Camps! Career camp (through the school district), wrestling camp and anything to keep them from getting an early onset of “I’m bored” syndrome.

Dreya Sigarroba-Jaquez  My middle schooler can’t wait to attend this year’s career camp, thanks to the CGESD. Last year, she was in the Veterinary Camp and loved it. She learned so much & had a blast!

Wanda Kartchner We go to Hamilton High School swimming pool. It’s open every day and is a $1 admission and a really great pool. It’s about 35 minutes away and far exceeds Casa Grande pool, plus open many more hours and days. It’s well worth the drive!

Dreya Sigarroba-Jaquez We do family camping trips.

Ana Rosique Tonto Creek has some good programs, most three days. St. Joseph at Mormon Lake — my kids have been going there for years. They are picked up in Tempe on Sundays and they are back the following Saturday. Grande Innovation Academy — they have weekly programs through a third party. Check the schools. Boys & Girls Clubs and the City of Chandler have great programs too.

Darla Dawald Thrive Academy has summer electives on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons. They include dance, guitar, theatre arts, voice lessons, beginning Karate, film, art and hands-on science.

Karen Scott Explore new places we have not seen yet here in Arizona that have water, fishing camping hiking, animals  and history.

Kristen Schlagel Send them to grandma and grandpa’s! Lol!

Brittany Long The library always has a lot of events going on. Also, swimming, arts and crafts, mornings at the movies, K’NEX or LEGO projects.

Pam Crisp Williams We’re going to cooler country.

Darlene Moberly We’re planning on spending a lot of time in San Diego this summer to escape the blistering heat.

Brad Phillips We’ll camp, garden, fish, travel to Canada, hunt rabbits, go four-wheeling, visit the arboretums and visit the museums.

Kelly Hartin Go to the pool, make homemade popsicles, enjoy a hose and water balloons and picnic under a shady tree.
