Here are some great summertime pages from KidsOutAndAbout:
Here are links to some posts that are good for warm weather.
This List of Playgrounds was created with the help of readers. If your favorite isn’t on the list, I’d love if you’d share the fun with us by filling out this Playground Survey. You don’t have to know the answers to every single question: just get the location down and do your best. If you do add a playground, I’ll be more likely to get it onto the public playground list quickly if you send me an email (it’s capitaldistrictfun [at] yahoo [dot] com). And then I’ll also thank you profusely!
I also wrote an article for KidsOutAndAbout.com called Playgrounds in the Albany-Troy-Schenectady Area That Are Worth the Trip.
Getting Wet has a list of pools, beaches, splash pads, creeks, and water parks.
This post lists off seasonal joints that serve ice cream and grilled food.
Check here for Drive-in Movie Theaters.
Another popular destination is Farnsworth Middle School’s Butterfly Station.
Here’s where to find information on 2011 Summer Camps. Search for 2012 camps by subject or week on KidsOutAndAbout.com.
Click for links to a bunch of free Concert Series this summer.
A guest poster wrote this one on Planning a Block Party.
Or perhaps you’d like to go Berry Picking?
Here’s a post on Washers, a DIY backyard game with multi-generational appeal.
I have a few posts on specific summer destinations, like Hoffman’s Playland, Moreau Lake,Â Collins Lake, Camping at Glimmerglass near Cooperstown, and and two series on places to visit inÂ Lake Placid, including these previous Capital District Fun posts, as well as more articles that I wrote for KidsOutAndAbout.com.
If you have warm weather suggestions, or if you remember one of my old posts that you think should be listed here, I’d be grateful if you’d send me an email (it’s capitaldistrictfun [at] yahoo [dot] com). Thank you!
