Our View: Many summer programs offer escape from pending boaredom
There's one thing we shouldn't have to hear this summer: "I'm bored."
We know those words will likely escape young mouths as temperatures rise and the excitement of school-free days wane. When they come, parents shouldn't despair.
The region offers a variety of activities to keep youth of all ages and tastes engaged, from summer camps to a variety of daily outings.
As was reported in Wednesday's Post-Bulletin, many of those activities remain open. Those who assume slots in highly anticipated programs are filled could be pleasantly surprised when looking to keep their children occupied as the long days of summer seem to grow even longer due to the mundane nature of too many unplanned days.
While Wednesday's report outlined a handful of options, it is by no means complete. We've received notes and calls saying as much. It shows that programs from throughout the region are looking forward to help youth and families overcome the potential boredom and make new discoveries this summer.
All you need to do is be willing to seek them out.
