10 Kids Share What They Love Most About Summertime

From visiting grandparents to roller coaster riding and surfing, these kids relish it all!

By Lorraine Allen

In a child’s life, the anticipation of summer vacation approaching might just be the most exciting time of the year. So much free time away from school! No homework for months! Weeks and weeks to just play, wander, dream, and roam around. Often, kids get sent away to camp, or go to day camps near home, which are totally opposite of school and loads of fun.

Summer vacation is also usually a wonderful, exciting, and memorable time. Here, 10 kids, including my own, share what they love most about summertime and what they look forward to, above all. Here are the fun things they shared (which made me nostalgic about my own childhood, in many ways!).

1 . “Swimming! And going to ‘Nana camp’ (at grandma’s, with my cousin).” -- my daughter, Lina, 6

2. “Going to Montana and to sports camp with my aunt who lives in the wilderness.” -- Max, 8

3. “Riding on the roller coasters!” -- Emile, 5

4. “Going to violin camp by the lake.” -- Helena, 6

5. “Playing at the park and the playgrounds.” -- Tessa, 6

6. “Playing Baby with my daddy.” -- Lucy, 3
