SUPER Summer Camp & Activities Guide πŸ•οΈβ€‹

Plan Your Summer Fun!

By Christen Reiner, Macaroni Kid Lakewood-Littleton Editor and Publisher March 1, 2020


PUBLISHER'S NOTE:

Hey Mac Kid Fam! 

We are living (and schooling) in unchartered waters these days. It might seem weird to be talking about things like making summer plans, but there are two reasons that this is the PERFECT time!

  1. After being at home for who knows how long, you (and your kids) will need something to look forward to this summer...something that gives everyone a change of scenery!
  2. Our sponsors are all local businesses. As a local business owner myself, I know how scary it is during these uncertain times. Imagine the impact that you will have on these businesses if you purchase your summer camps and activities now! And don't worry, all of our sponsors are reputable and trustworthy businesses. If social distancing lasts longer than we expect, I know that they will find a way to make sure that you are satisfied with your purchase!

THANK YOU, Mac Fam!

Christen
