News From the Inland Northwest
Things are warming up again here in Spokane and all the snow birds have returned to enjoy the pleasant days of summer. Children are eagerly anticipating their next months of freedom and parents are frantically trying to figure out how to keep their kids busy. I thought this blog should be about local summer programs for kids and where to find them!
Skyhawks offers a complete 9 week summer day camp for kids 5-12 right in Liberty Lake Wa. and registration is open now! The camp focuses on sports with a different sport taught each week but also changes things up every day with arts, crafts, field trips, and swimming. The camp is located in Pavilion Park (727 N Molter Rd) in Liberty Lake and the cost is only $128 per week when you purchase all 9 weeks. More info at: 509-755-6714
The Spokane Valley YMCA (2421 Discovery Way) has a great full time summer program that includes swimming lessons and field trips. If you are a member you will get a small discount as well. The spaces for these programs fill up quick! You can get more information about YMCA camps at: 509-777-9622
The Home Depot offers fun, free, weekend workshops that you and your child can participate in together. On June 2nd, the Liberty Lake Home Depot will be presenting their wooden classic car building workshop for ages 5-12. It goes from 9-noon and is free! Your finished car will probably not be as amazing as the one in photo above but it’s about quality time well spent with your kids!
My favorite summer camp suggestion is an equestrian (horse riding) program designed especially for autistic and special needs children. The place is Free Rein Therapeutic Riding. They have done so much to support this community and help kids and adults achieve new levels of confidence and accomplishment. To get more information on what they can offer you or someone you know, email Breanna at:
These are just a few of the multitudes of opportunities available in the area but I hope they inspire you to find the right fit for your family!
I wish you the best for a terrific summer!
