Youth summer programs around Verrado

The question on every parent’s mind right now, “What will my children do all summer?”

With less than two weeks of school left, parents are most likely anxious to find some fun activities to keep their children engaged while mixing in some much needed (and well deserved) rest from the daily grind and routine of the school year.

Great news! Community partners of Verrado are hosting plenty of enriching, recreational and social offerings throughout the summer break. Whether your child is interested in beating the heat indoors reading a book a day or learning to play a new sport, there is a program for him or her.

These extra-curricular activities are sure to keep your kiddos happy (and parents sane) all summer long. Be sure to check out what Verrado clubs have going on throughout the summer as well.
