Pathways to Summer Fun resources outline fun opportunities for youth

 
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - May 21, 2020 - PRLog -- Summer may look a little differently than in years past, but fun and educational opportunities are still available for our area's youth.

With the end of virtual classes and long periods of quarantine due to COVID-19, parents and caregivers could already be thinking about how to occupy their children over the summer. However, children don't have to leave the region -- or even their homes -- to have a fun, educational summer.

The Cabell County Family Resource Network (http://www.cabellfrn.org), in partnership with the Huntington Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (http://www.visithuntingtonwv.org/), Cabell County Student Empowerment Team (http://www.cabellempower.org/) and Hourglass Media (https://spark.adobe.com/slate-web/www.hourglassmedia.company), has all of the summer fun answers to parents' most pressing questions. It recently released the Pathways to Summer Fun flyer and database for Cabell County activities and beyond. This is the second year for this free resource.

The Cabell County Student Empowerment Team, a part of the Cabell County Family Resource Network, has always promoted children having caring adults in their lives, safe places to learn and grow, get a healthy start, develop marketable skills and learn to give back to the community. The organization uses the "5 Basics of America's Promise" (http://www.americaspromise.org/promises) to guide all local activities. West Virginia is identified as one of 15 states that has passed legislation to keep students learning in the summer.

This listing of summer camps and enrichment activities have been compiled for a quick glance into all the different pathways your children and youth can explore for fun learning experiences this summer. The list offers camps, arts and crafts, sports and other enrichment activities. Instruction during the summer has the potential to stop summer learning losses. Extended learning is essential for children to achieve reading success by the end of third grade.

Confirm dates, times, and details with each program. A full list with links to each program can be found at bit.ly/cabellfrnsummerfun2020 (https://spark.adobe.com/slate-web/bit.ly/cabellfrnsummerfun) and cabellfrn.org (https://spark.adobe.com/slate-web/cabellfrn.org).
