Rockwood Expo Will Give You Ideas for What To Do With Your Kids This Summer While You Work

​When I was a kid, summer break was pretty much the best. Now that I have kids of my own, and a job, summer break is a lot less fun. With no school to occupy my kid’s time, it’s difficult to balance work with keeping them safe, active and entertained.

Yes, I know it’s February and I’m talking about summer, but believe it or not, it is time to start planning for it, especially if you live in St. Louis. This Sunday February 8 is the 2015 Summer Expo, where you can preview a variety of summer program offerings from Parkway-Rockwood Community Education as well as more than 85 area organizations and camps.

The Parkway-Rockwood Community Education’s summer programs are open to anyone and include things like: enrichment classes, high school driver education, outdoor education camps and classes, sports camps, swimming lessons, and performing arts programs…just to name a few.

I have taken my kids there the past couple of years, and we have found a couple of camps they ended up attending and really enjoying. There is truly something for everyone. Go check it out:
