It’s no secret that there isn’t an infinite number of summers with our children before it’s time for them to flee the nest. If you’re looking for fun ways to add some summer memories, then look no more!

Hiking, beaches, and more in Two Rivers and Manitowoc

Summer Bucket List Ideas for at home
- Camp in the backyard (backyard bonfire and s’mores, anyone?)
- Create an obstacle course
- Outdoor movies with a projector (add an extra flair of fun by giving the kiddos a large box to decorate like a car (a home drive-in movie!)).
- Water balloon fights

Tips for kayaking with kiddos: water, snacks, sunscreen, bug spray, properly fitting lifejackets (fewer complaints from the kiddos when they fit right!), and wear bright clothing so a motored boat can see you! Also, launching kayaks from sites that are less utilized is a stress prevention tool – you’re not competing with numerous people and rushing to get onto the water.
