When the school year ends, summer camps begin. The Albany area offers dozens of programs that meet a variety of children's interest.
Camps ranging from science and nature camps at the Flint RiverQuarium, art camps at the Albany Museum of Art, and the multi-activity camps offered at Boys & Girls Clubs around Albany.
Summer camps are also educational. Melissa Martin, of the Flint RiverQuarium says "If a child is struggling with some science things in school, this is a great way to be able to add that in the summer, and the kids are still having a great time. So their actually learning and they don't even know it."
Not only are kids learning and having fun but they are doing so in a safe environment, something Bob Hutchinson of the Boys & Girls Clubs thinks is very important, "We want to make sure kids are in a safe place, a structured program, and involved in good clean wholesome activities, we don't want to lose kids to the streets"
