The Week Ahead for South Florida – Camps and Summer Deals 6/26/15

I hope you are all having a great summer, I can’t believe that June is almost over already!  If you are looking for things to do in Sunny South Florida, you can come to the right place!  I can tell you, I am looking for more indoor activities right now. We got in the pool yesterday and it was like a hot bath!

Adventure PassThis is a list of all the best summer deals that I could find.  There are a couple of passes that offer entrance to indoor museums and reviews of some of our favorite air conditioned museums.  Great Summer Deal Lists.

 

Need a little break?  Check out the summer camp list.  Some of them even allow you to sign up for just a day here and there.

Library ProgramDon’t forget the Library!  Libraries today are not the ones that we grew up with!

In case you are looking for cheap, cool, fun, and educational opportunities for the kids this summer, don’t forget about your local library! Most libraries throughout Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade Counties have story times for young kids and even activities for tweens, teens and adults. Many of the Libraries offer shows by professional performers, these can include puppet show, magic shows, and storytellers among others.  Look up your local branch now and fill your calendar!  Even the smaller branches have shows and programs, so don’t miss out!

Think about it when you travel this summer too, we have been to free programs when we visit family out of town and never been disappointed.

Alvin Sherman Library at Nova Southeastern University in Davie is one of my favorites.  Their PK and toddler programs are developed with pre-reading in mind.  They often have information available for parents to help you develop reading skills in your kids.  They also have a great kids section in the library with comfortable places to sit and do puzzles, color and draw, or read with your kids.  Computers are available with great software games as well.

Oakland Park Library is a great place to spend some time.  It is a small library, but they have professional puppeteers come in over the summer to do shows for the kids as well as other presentations.

Imperial Point Library does story time for the little ones weekly and reading programs for school age kids.  I love this library, they are always so friendly and it just has a great vibe.

Wilton Manors Library is a great one too.  They have special presentations for kids as well as summer reading programs.

Palm Beach County Libraries have massive and multiple programs going on around the county!

Next up is the Event Calendar!  I have hunted down many of the best free (or very low cost) summer activities around!  I have listed just a few below, but if you want to see them all go the Full Upcoming Event List.

The Week Ahead Events List for South Florida 10/17/13

Bedner's Pumpkin Patch

We have been having a great time this last week, we hit Bedner’s and it was really fun!  They stepped it up a notch this year, which means that it cost a bit more too, so expect to drop some cash.  They added some great games (free) for the kids and bunch of bounce houses (not free).  I will update the review this week with the pictures so you can get an idea, but I thought I would put a few here too.

Community GardenOur garden plot is coming along, too.  I am so excited about it, I can’t believe what a dork I am!  I think I may be more excited than my girl!

Don’t forget about Haunted Nights at Flamingo Gardens and take advantage of Money Saver Mondays to see the Scarecrows!

Also Stella & Dot still has a great discount for our readers!

Boca Community Gardens
Boca Community Gardens

I hope everyone is having an amazing week, I know we are all waiting impatiently for the weather to cool off!  I mentioned to a friend this week that there is something inherently wrong with sweating at a pumpkin patch!  No way around it though.

 

 

We spent last weekend working on our new 4×4 plot in the Boca Raton Community Garden.  10% of everything we grow will be donated to Boca Helping Hands.  My daughter is so excited about it.  I hope we can actually grow something and she is not disappointed! I was amazed today to see little seedlings growing already, so fingers crossed.  We planted sunflowers, broccoli, purple beans, peas, cherry tomatoes, spinach, purple carrots and chard.  My mom says that we will have to pull out some of them because we really shouldn’t have put so many things in.   Wish us luck!

Bedner's Pumpkin Patch

The list is so long this week, I don’t even know how to pick a favorite.  I will tell you that we are going to try to go to Bedner’s this weekend and possibly Jammin’ at Fern Forest.
