The Nemours Foundation has some of the most comprehensive, family-friendly health information that you’ll see. Their KidsHealth.org website has one of the highest rankings in the world on this subject. I have chosen some sites from this organization to help you keep everyone safe and healthy on summer vacation this year.
*Thinking about camping or hiking in the woods ? Read THIS.
*Going for a swim? Read this first. *How about a plane trip or travel to another country? Here’s info for you!
And speaking of vacations, if you are planning to stay close to home this year the Nova Scotia Tourism publishes the Doers and Dreamers Travel Guide, the Campers Guide and the Park Events Guide. Get your copy online or call 1-800-565-0000.
Thinking farther afield? We can help there too, check out our travel books at your local library and make plans. And don’t forget to sign up for the Summer STREAM, and try some of THESE great activities. Have a fun and safe summer!
