It’s June! Congratulations mamas, somehow, someway, we’ve made it to June! Although our current normal looks a lot different than it did a few months ago, we still want to provide you with all of the activities (virtual or otherwise), things to do, and resources to help you during this uncertain season.

Don’t forget to check out some of our other resource guides!

*Please note that this will be an ever-changing resource. While we make every effort to crosscheck current links and details, we always encourage you to do the same. If details are missing or incorrect, please let us know so that we can correct them. Check back often to see what has been added. 

Looking to add some adventure to your month? If your kids are ready for a break from homeschooling and virtual everything, then plan a family day or date night at Summit Adventure Park. The area’s all-new trampoline park packs 12 attractions and tons of fun into each visit. Test gravity on the Olympic-sized trampoline court, become the ultimate athlete, ninja or gladiator, take flight on the airbags…even toddlers can get in on the fun in their very own Kid’s Court. Check site for hours and rates. Follow them for special events and promotions.
