summer camp

It’s hard to believe, but Toby will be done with Kindergarten in only one month. He’s had a fantastic year – made some really good friends and learned tons, including the ability to read very fluently, so that he’s now reading books for 8 or 9 year olds. The summer break is pretty long – from mid-June till early September – and the standard thing is to find a lot of summer activities for kids to do during that time.

On the advice of some of our neighbors, we’re enrolling him in the Downtown YMCA summer camp. It sounds like he’s going to get to swim and play every day, as well as do at least three field trips each week, to places like museums, farms and parks. We’re also going to see if we can get him a couple of weeks going to the YMCA’s more rural center, where he’ll get to go hiking, canoeing, and general outdoors things. No overnight stays though – he has to be at least 7 years old to do that – and fortunately the YMCA offers a bus service each day from the downtown location. Sounds like tons of fun.

Certainly more fun than this anyway:

Daily? I would assume youd only need to have it done once.

    We should point out that Toby’s main concern with the outdoor camp was that he didn’t know how to hike… I’m guessing he’ll figure it out pretty quickly.
