Campamentos de verano pueden mantener a los niños activos e interesados

La participación en un campamento de verano es una fabulosa manera de mantener a los niños activos e interesados. Los campamentos de verano les dan a los niños oportunidades para socializar y continuar aprendiendo mientras que están de vacaciones y además darles algo para satisfacer su interés – montar a caballo, cocinar, y hasta el espacio exterior.

Aquí presentamos algunos recursos para encontrar un campamento para su hijo:

* Distritos escolares locales: consulte con su distrito escolar local para que le den una lista de clases de verano y campamentos. Algunas escuelas ofrecen clases de verano, dando una oportunidad para que su hijo continúe aprendiendo durante el verano. Algunas comunidades ofrecen clases extracurriculares, tales como música, arte y baile.
*Centros comunitarios locales: muchos centros comunitarios ofrecen campamentos deportivos, como también las sucursales locales de la YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Consulte con su centro local para recibir una lista de campamentos.
*Kckidsfun.com: Este sitio en Internet publica el directorio de campamentos de verano Kansas City 2017. El directorio está dividido en seis categorías – general y de un día para otro, deportivos, ciencia/naturaleza, arte, artes escénicas y necesidades especiales. Algunos ejemplos incluyen campamentos en el Kansas City Ballet, el Museo de Arte Nelson Atkins, y el zoológico de Kansas City.
* Iglesias: muchas iglesias locales organizan campamentos religiosos. En algunas iglesias, el campamento es una escuela bíblica de vacaciones de una semana, donde los niños aprenden diferentes historias bíblicas y participan en juegos y trabajos manuales. Algunas iglesias ofrecen campamentos de un día para otro donde los niños pueden nadar, tienen excursiones a pie y disfrutan de otras actividades al aire libre. Típicamente, los campamentos en las iglesias son gratis o de bajo costo.


Summer camps can keep children active and engaged

Commentary by Carey Juez-Perez

Participating in a summer camp is a great way to keep children active and engaged.
Summer camps provide opportunities for children to socialize and continue learning while school is out. And they provide something to satisfy every child’s interest – horseback riding, cooking, even outer space.

The following are a few resources for finding a camp for your child:

*Local school districts: Check with your local school district for a list of summer classes and camps. Some schools offer summer school, providing an opportunity for your child to continue learning during the summer. Some communities offer extracurricular classes, such as those for music, art and dance.
*Local community centers: Many community centers offer sports day camps, as do local branches of the YMCA, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Check with your local center for a list of camps.
*Kckidsfun.com: This website posts the Kansas City 2017 summer camp directory. The directory is divided into six categories – general and overnight, sports, science/nature, art, performing arts and special needs. Some examples include camps at the Kansas City Ballet, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and the Kansas City Zoo.
*Churches: Many local churches host church camps. At some churches, the camp is a weeklong vacation Bible school, where children learn various Bible stories, and participate in crafts and games. Some churches offer overnight camps where children can swim, hike and enjoy other outdoor activities. Typically, church camps are free or low cost.
