School-aged children in the United States spend their summer holidays in many different ways. My daughter (a second grader) will attend several different camps, one a private program, and others run by our city on the campuses of local schools. Some older students attend sleep-over camps, or participate in internships, or volunteer with community groups and non-profits.

This summer (like last summer), will be hosting an activities challenge to help parents keep their kids excited about learning during the summer break. Editor-in-Chief Danielle Wood explains the companyâs decision to host the challenge:

"Educators tell us that kids slip quite a bit academically during the three months of summer break. It's called a 'break' for a reason, and no one wants to torture kids with spelling tests and math drills during the summer. But parents tell us they do want to help their kids avoid that summer slide. So we've designed activities - for preschoolers, high-schoolers, and everyone in between - that are incredibly fun, but sneak in some education, too."

More about this year's challenge will be posted on soon. Those interested in participating should visit the Activities section of the site in May to learn more:

I'm including links below to additional information about how U.S. students can spend their summer break in a healthy and educational manner. Thanks for asking!
