“My daughter takes basketball camps and competitive cheer.” Gina McCabe South Abington Township
“We look for a balance of activities around the neighborhood with trying something new along the lines of a weeklong camp somewhere. Anything but video games…” Ryan Kaeb North Abington Township
“We come to the library a lot.” Jennifer LaBelle Clarks Summit
“We do the water park and a lot of bike riding on the trails.” Mitch Hamilton South Abington Township
“Mainly having them do outdoor activities so they are not as focused on TV and computer games.” Elvin Varughesekutty Clarks Summit
“It’s a combo of feeling their rhythms and trying to respond accordingly. If they are clearly drained from the day before, trying to force something overly active may not be the best idea. A normal day might include swimming.” Brent Stouffer Clarks Green
