Summer Camps

Being an adult sucks sometimes. We don't get 10-week summer breaks anymore, we don't get to go to school for free. These are thoughts I had often this year while compiling the Inlander's 2016 Summer Camp guide. There are so many opportunities offered at the hundreds of summer camps around our region to learn all sorts of amazing, new things — often for free or at a really affordable price.

In part due to the current public education focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) fields, kids can learn how to program computers, make robots and otherwise develop into the innovators of our future. This year's guide is packed full of camps and classes that teach these invaluable skills, things we older folks should be envious of. (sure we can learn them, too, but where's the time?) Camps in this year's education section offer girls-only coding sessions, video game animation, environmental stewardship, learning a second language and fun science experiments galore.

Of course, there are still plenty of chances to simply escape from home for a week at sleep-away camp, to play your favorite sport or let your imagination loose to creativity in art, music and drama. All of these non-STEM sessions still offer plenty of learning opportunities and personal growth.

When the end of August arrives, look back and reflect on all the things you've learned this summer. Learning happens everywhere, everyday — something you'll come to realize when adulthood arrives.
