Keeping the Kids Busy

Parents as well as neighbors love to see kids keeping busy in fun, active ways, for who hasn’t seen groups of bored kids hanging out on stoops, streets or corners being loud or perhaps even unruly as they try to keep themselves entertained?
Fortunately, there are some great options for kids this summer.  Tyrell Pryor, a VISTA Volunteer who is working with TRIP for the summer, is compiling lists of camp opportunities, drop-in centers, and other events to share with kids and their families to keep busy in the next two months.  He is currently getting out the word about the City of Troy’s free sports camps at Frear Park, arts camps at the Arts Center of the Capital Region, a new South Central Recreation Drop-In Center at the Italian Community Center and more.
