It may only be the final few days of January, and summer may seem some months away, however, we all know how quickly time flies these days. Residents in McLean, VA are getting themselves prepared for summer camp for the kids by registering for their community center summer program.
Plan now to register your child for McLean Community Center’s enriching summer camp programs for children ages 3 through 14. Camp McLean, for children ages 3 to 10, offers a dynamic range of activities including swimming, arts and crafts, nature hikes and special events.
We all know that kids love to spend time outdoors, and there’s so much to think about when packing for camp. What clothes, shoes, toiletries to take and also any first aid and medication.
Camp is a great way for kids to get outside, get active and meet new friends. Whether it’s an overnight summer camp or a specialty day camp, kids will likely be participating in outdoor activities and playing near other children. While camp is an opportunity for them to make memories and grow socially, the combination of summer camps’ outdoor play and communal spaces can increase a child’s likelihood of picking up a camp-related illness.
It’s never to early to be prepared. Whether your just about to register your child to attend or you’re already shopping for supplies, make sure you’ve got all areas covered, especially when it comes to the health and safety of your kids.
