Summer is here! There are a lot of great things to do in and around Boston. We have found places and activities that are safe and fun.
The time to make your summer plans is NOW. Summer Stuff is the place to find summer schools, camps, programs, activities, and jobs. You could take dance lessons, learn to sail or play golf, act in a play, volunteer at a museum or homeless shelter, plan for college, get a job, intern in a science lab or on a farm, and go to free concerts and films. (You could even work on your math skills…)
Need ideas? Summer Stuff is full of good ideas. Read it through and visit websites or call. They're waiting to hear from you.
Find exactly what you want, then apply—now. Many programs are "first come/first served," and they fill up fast. In many cases, you can apply online or print an application from the website. Don’t be put off by the cost of some programs. Many have scholarships or reduced fees based on what a family can pay, and they are looking for Boston students. Just ask. In fact, some programs are only for students who go to the Boston Public Schools. Good luck—and have a great summer!
