Summer vacation is nearly halfway over for most K-12 students, but there’s still time for kids to expand their horizons.
Many local businesses, including Kidzu Children’s Museum, Carrboro Recreation and Parks Department and the ArtsCenter are still offering summer programs for kids of various ages.
At Kidzu, Tina Clossick, director of operations, said their programs are aimed towards children ages 0 to 8.
“Most of our programs are based on the fact that if you’re here during the school time, you’re going to be 6 and under,” she said.
She said some of the programs Kidzu offers for kids include arts and crafts, storytelling and joint programs with PlayMakers Repertory Company, Ackland Art Museum and FRANK.
Most of the programs at Kidzu are free with the price of admission or membership.
“We’re a perfect indoor space to bring the kids and give them something fun and educational to do,” Clossick said.
The Carrboro Century Center is anything but a space for indoor camps. With both outdoor and indoor classes, and sponsored by the Recreations and Parks Department, the center has a number of programs to choose from each week.
“Now that July is here, a lot of times people are looking to fill that gap before they go back to school,” said Julie Collins, recreation supervisor.
