don't forget Easton Area Community Center .... whichever is more convenient. They are both great organizations.

Yep--I'm covering them too--I posted about their new greenhouse for kids this summer at the community center.

School of Natural Learning also operates out of the community center sometimes...lots of good stuff to go around.

Summer camp is like a big break for kids and teens. They will get to relax but will not forget the values, this also one way to make them feel freedom and independence. I am not saying that this is a requirement, what I am saying is that this is really better than doing unproductive activities.
