Vacation is the most enjoyable and memorable time of a child’s childhood depending on how it is spend. Watching T.V., playing routine games etc soon make your child bored. A lot of summer camps and vacations are offered for children but many families can’t afford them. For those who can’t afford expensive summer camps etc, we have a lot of other economical ways to make their children’s vacation memorable and also give them an opportunity to learn something.
First of all, the best way to entertain your child with a bit of some valuable learning is outdoor summer activities like swimming pools. Many swimming pools provide a great opportunity for children to entertain them free of cost. They also have something for your kids apart from just swimming. For younger children, they offer swimming lessons. Parents can also participate in these swimming lessons. For older children, swim teams are offered. These are local competitions, without any entrance fee or special equipment, which makes the child athletic.
Other option is hiking or camping with your family. You can find camping sites at small rent. There are also a number of local parks etc that provide hiking sites or bird watching free of cost, here you can enhance your kid’s knowledge and also keep them active. Some parks offer forestry demonstration, animal cases and any other activities, throughout the year. You can enquire about them from some local parks website.
There are also short day camps, library trips and other learning activities that are inexpensive and fun for children. Some colleges and universities offer weekly day camps for children of all ages they provide information of all level and provide a safe and exciting learning environment. Check for local universities or their extensions for the details.
Few libraries also provide interesting opportunities for children, like some reading competitions and book discussions and also given prizes. This not only motivate the child to participate more actively but also gives them loads of new information that later on helps them in school. Some libraries also offer, for older children, cooking classes, movie nights and books discussions etc. these activities are often free of cost and are held in a safe teen environment.
