Many parents are always discussing (asking) what they should do with their children in the "off season". Following are some ideas that have come across our desk that may be of interest to you. McKnight does not endorse any of these programs, and therefore it is in your best interest to find more information about the program before committing to a program. As well, talk to other parents, they may have experience with the program or maybe they too are looking for a fun program to join, it's always nice for kids to join a new program with an old friend.
If you know of a program that would be of interest to our members, please forward the information to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll post it for you.
