8 Chestermere ways to connect with your kids this summer

pic6

School is almost out and you may be wondering what you will possibly do to keep your kiddos busy this summer. Well, you’re in luck that you live in a community bursting with opportunities for you and your kids to have some fun together.

Here are a few ideas to kick off your summer holidays:

1. Get out on the lake: The beach is open at Anniversary Park so pop down for some fun in the sun. The Rotary Club’s lifejacket rental space is also open to help keep the little ones safe in the water. 


2. Join the Summer Reading Program: Kids who don’t read over the summer fall behind on their literacy skills and the Chestermere Public Library doesn’t want to let that happen! Sign up for free with your Library card. Every time you stop in to the Library or participate in one of their 26 events, you can put your name in for a chance to win some amazing prize baskets. Only registered members can enter for prizes but, programs are open to all residents, including those not registered.


3. Spend a day at the Bike Park: Think the Bike Park is just for kids? Then you haven’t tried it! Take your bike and try a few runs yourself…you’ll entertain your kids if nothing else!


4. Mobile Adventure Playground: Remember how you played with whatever you could find as a kid? That concept is back to help bring back free, unstructured play to our children (which, it turns out, is essential to their development). Learn more and check out the schedule here. 


5. Play beach volleyball: Last year, we upgraded the beach volleyball courts at Sunset Park. Don’t worry - if your kids aren’t quite big enough to get the ball over the net, we’re cool with them building a sandcastle (if no one else wants to play). Check out Sunset Park and all our other park spaces using our interactive parks map here.


6. Do a class together: The Rec Centre has some cool camps running just for kids but you can also drop in for inline skating, pickleball or other sports this summer! Learn more at www.chestermerecrca.com.

 

7. Learn to skateboard: One of the best ways to build connections with your kids is to learn something new together. So strap on your rollerblades or dig out that old skateboard and try something new at the skatepark. Maybe you can even convince another parent to meet you for moral support?


8. Walk the dog: We have more than 41km of pathways in our community. Check out our map of pre-calculated run distances and see if you can keep up with your kids!
