Just because the kids get the summers off doesn’t mean their parents do! With most families, both parents work full time jobs leaving them worried about how to entertain their children during the summer. Thankfully, Kids Play Garden Mount Pleasant and Kids Play Garden South Windermere is here to help with Summer Adventure Camps 2016 from June 6 – August 12, 2016. Each week, the camps will have a special theme from gardening, camping, Star Wars, Lego Mania and more. Parents are encouraged to reserve their child’s spot early as these camps do fill up quickly. Pre-purchase is required.
“As a working parent, I understand it’s can be difficult to find numerous ways to entertain children during the summer. With our variety of camps, the kids aren’t just having fun, they’re learning through play. ” said Maren Anderson, founder of Kids Play Garden.
