Year-round opportunities.

Smart Fun, Strong Kids is no longer just about summer. Think about year-round activities that will be great for our kids. In addition to camps, consider summer and year-round library and museum activities, horseback riding, art, forensics for fun, children’s theater, music and dance, sports, zoo activities—and you can probably think of more that we haven’t thought of.

Besides the places mentioned just above, check with your worker, other foster parents, church, school, recreation centers, YMCAs, colleges and universities. Read your newspapers and newsletters and our periodic emails about things to do. And when you find something good, spread the word!

Get in touch with us! We’ll help all we can with finding and funding what you need for the kids in your care. See the link above for an application or contact Kim Cannon at or 803-606-3431.
