Summer Guide 2020

Its a questionable summer for our area, if there are camps or not, I have you covered!

By Angela Earley, publisher May 4, 2020

NJ schools are now officially closed for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year. We still have so much unknown as to what our summer will look like. 

As our remote learning has ended, we have to consider options on what to do for our kids for the summer. We hope summer camps will be up and running, most will be open soon. But what if not, what do we do with the kids home all summer? I compiled a list of some ideas and articles to keep us all busy this summer, no matter what the future holds.
