Hey Girls,

Summer brings not only warm weather and longer nights, but also three months of school-free time for fun and activities! So, after you’ve taken a little bit of time to relax with cold lemonade by the poolside after a long school year, get out and have some fun! Make this a summer to remember — one that you can enjoy and look forward to going back to school to tell everyone about.

For those of you who don’t have concrete plans set for the summer, try going to summer camp! Or better yet, apply to work at a summer camp and get paid to have fun! There are a variety of teen summer camps to choose from. There are camps for just about anything and everything you can think of — sports, art, music, computer and graphic design — and countless others!

Find a summer camp in your area that interests you. Enjoy graphic design, web design, or just intrigued with computers in general? Then search for a cyber camp near you! Or for those of you who want to get away and experience a new environment, try overnight summer camps! There are adventure camps full of fun activities like canoeing, horseback riding, rock climbing, scuba diving, windsurfing and more. You could even try expanding your horizons and spend your summer in another country. Apply for a cultural exchange program to learn about and even help other countries.

The options are endless! Don’t sit around glued to the television when you can get out and enjoy summer weather and awesome activities. Look into different summer camps in your area today!

Have a safe and enjoyable summer,

It’s practically summer – the best time to get outside and have fun!!! I don’t know about you all, but I’ve had enough of the cold weather. I’ve started a list of things I plan to do this summer and thought I’d share it!

1. Go on bike rides with my family and friends
2. Take hikes
3. Go swimming – at the beach and at the pool!
4. Plant a garden
5. Walk and play fetch with the dog
6. Make a slip and slide out of a tarp, soap, and a hose!
7. Attempt to make a home-made kite and fly it
8. Play sports, of course! I love pick-up kickball, basketball, and soccer games.
9. Go miniature golfing
10. Practice yoga
11. Get tickets to a baseball game
12. Go roller blading
13. Have picnics!

Those are just a few things I’ve thought of so far! What kinds of things are you planning to do this summer? Write a comment and let me know!
