Summer Activities for Kids
Summer KidsIf you’re a kid then summer time only means one thing- school is officially out! If you’re a parent, the summer months can be challenging as you try to figure out ways to keep your kids active and entertained. In this blog post, we’ll provide you with information on the best activities available for kids in the local area. From whitewater rafting and mad scientist experiments to wildlife survival classes, we’ve got you covered with everything you need to know to keep your kids active this summer.

Whitewater Rafting

Columbus, Georgia is home to a few of the largest rapids east of Colorado and the longest urban whitewater rafting course in the world. Two courses are available each day, the classic and the challenge course. The classic course, ran when the water is lower and the rapids are not as fast, is the perfect choice for the entire family.

Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center

Oxbow Meadows offers plenty of activities for people of all ages throughout the year. The programs are ramped up during the summer when kids are out of school. This year Oxbow Meadows will offer several unique programs like Radical Reptiles, Nature Nuggets, and Kids vs Wild, all of which are sure to be entertaining for your kids. You can view the entire calendar of summer programs here.

Columbus Botanical Gardens

Similar to Oxbow Meadows, the Columbus Botanical Gardens is the place to be for children that love nature and enjoy having outdoor adventures. On Aug. 17, 2019, the Columbus Botanical Gardens will host a Butterfly Release event. More information about the Columbus Botanical Gardens and the Butterfly Release event is available here.

Coca-Cola Space Science Center

The Coca-Cola Space and Science Center offers regular programming throughout the year. Typical programs open to the public are Astronomy Nights, Comic Book & Toy Shows, and the recent Music Under the Dome Series. Periodically, the space center also hosts Astronaut visits!
With all of the summer activities available for kids, the only challenge you’ll face s finding somewhere to go!
