Summertime is here, and your child is out of school for a couple months. If you want to get your kid away from the video games for at least a little while this summer, there are several summer camps in the Mesa area to get him up and moving. Here’s a look at a few of them.
The YMCA summer program gives your child a chance to have positive experiences and build confidence through age appropriate skill-building activities. Your child will spend some time outdoors and have a sense of achievement from attending the camps, whether they’re in a YMCA facility or an outdoor park or day camp site. Check out for more information.
