Do you have the kids’ summer activities all planned? There are lots of great summer camps, activities and workshops for children in the community, if you need any additional information or want to meet the camp counselors, the Nevada City Summer Camp Fair is a great event. The 8th annual event is coming this Saturday, May 4th, 10am- 2pm at the Vet’s Hall in downtown Nevada City, hosted in partnership with the Parents Resource Guide. There will be a bounce house for the kids, so feel free to bring the kids along. Nevada City and Grass Valley summer camps provide kids the opportunity to act, create, explore nature, work on a farm, swimming and much, much more. Really, the hardest choice is figuring out which program works for your child.
