Working closely with 30 parents, 30 principals and 30 students each month means we have a deep understanding of what parents need to make their lives easier while also helping their kids lead happy and productive lives. Every spring, for the last 6 years, In the ZONA has offered an exclusive E-guide of their top picks of summer camps! In the ZONA understands the impact summer learning loss has on children; most students lose two months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months (Cooper 1996). Additionally, low-income students also lose more than two months in reading achievement; despite the fact their peers make slight gains (Cooper 1996). If that isn't enough, children lose more than academic knowledge over the summer. Most children-particularly children at high risk for obesity- gain weight more rapidly when they are out of school during summer break (Von Hippel et al 2007).In the ZONA provides this e-guide FREE to parents and makes it easier for Valley parents to learn about and connect with more than 1,000 local summer. Camps fill up fast, so it's important to plan now! Got Kids? Need Camps? Visit www.gotkidsneedcamps.com for access to In the ZONA's free e-guide and online director.
