School is almost over for many Fort Bragg’s students, which brings parents and children together to answer that perennial question: Where are we going this summer?
The answer to that question may be closer than you think.
For those who enjoy camp, children can choose from the Fort Bragg Armed Services YMCA and Child and Youth School Services’ Camp DZ. If there is a specific sport or activity a child would like to do, SKIESUnlimited’s specialty camps may fit the bill.
Fort Bragg’s Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation has put together a comprehensive list of many activities for youth. Visit www.fortbraggmwr.com/cyss/skies-unlimited/#summer and download the Summer Camps 2012 brochure for other options for military youth:

Fighting Fish swim classes
On top of everything else, sixth through eighth graders can go on day trips to Carowinds and Wet-N-Wild Greensboro, N.C., as well as showing off their latest dance moves at the Summer Throw Down and Back To School Jam dances. Ninth through 12th graders can visit amusement parks as well as get some bowling, skating, dancing and shopping in before school starts.
With activities like these, the question, “Where are we going this summer?” should change to “Are we going to have enough time to do everything this summer?”
