The Villages’ Kids LOVE Summer!

This summer we had the opportunity to send The Villages’ children to many fun, exciting events that created positive, lifelong memories! Many of these children wouldn’t have been able to have these experiences without the help of The Villages, and we are excited to recap some of the activities the children engaged in this summer.

Thirteen Villages’ kids attended the camps at the Indiana State Museum for FREE! Camps topics included: History Alive, Science & Sci-Fi, Diggin’ Indiana Paleontology, Exploring Nature, Indiana Artists, Crime Scene, and Multimedia Summer Camp. Through attending these camps, The Villages’ kids were able to interact with other children their age, make new friends, and further explore some of their academic and personal interests. Summer Camps are the perfect time for our children to expand their horizons as they get out of the house and do something they never previously had the opportunity to do!

In addition to summer camps, The Villages’ kids and their families had the opportunity to attend Family Night at Victory Field on June 11th thanks to The Villages’ generous sponsors and donors. We had an excellent turnout at the game as nearly 300 kids and their families cheered the Indianapolis Indians to victory! Tribe Tokens provided children with a traditional ballpark frank, hamburger, nachos, soda, etc. to enjoy for FREE! It was a perfect night of baseball for all who attended, especially for those who had never been to a game before!

Villages’ sponsored opportunities weren’t the only thing on our kids agenda’s this summer.  Many children had a blast doing fun things with family and friends this summer! Below are some of the summer activities the kids enjoyed doing:

Porshia went to a state park in Ohio where she swam, played in the woods, and went bike riding!

The Watson Boys had a fun evening out at a wedding this summer!

Shawn made the Varsity Football Team and is practicing with his team this summer!

Kenny is taking Algebra & English in Summer School – and making A’s in both!

Isaac had fun attending an educational day at the zoo to learn more about his condition, Hemophilia.

Mercades goes to day camp each week where she swims, goes to parks, and the Children Museum!
