Summer Opportunities Fair set at Lindbergh High

A special event presenting summer camps and classes from around the region will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, in the Lindbergh High School Commons, 5000 S. Lindbergh Blvd.

This is the fourth annual Summer Opportunities Fair hosted by the PEGS and LEAP Parents Groups to provide area students with information about their options for their summer vacation time, according to a news release.

Last year’s event drew camp presenters from as near as the district’s own Lindbergh Activities Association all the way to the Cub Creek Science Camp in Rolla.

Camp and class offerings are available for a wide range of ages, from preschool through high school, ranging from swimming at the YMCA to learning about the space program at the Challenger Learning Center.

Many local arts organizations also offer information about their inspiring programs, including Laumeier Sculpture Park and the Shakespeare Festival.

“This event is a great, easy way for parents and students to find exciting ways to spend their summer,” Cynthia Schon, PEGS parent and event coordinator, stated in the release. “It is especially important for families like ours, in which both parents work full time, to have a plan for our child’s school break weeks. Having all of these resources available to us together in a single location makes it much easier to get the information we need.”
