Hattiesburg, Mississippi – As school winds down for the year, the City of Hattiesburg is releasing a digital activity guide to help parents and guardians make plans that will engage local youth throughout the summer.
“For many parents, summer vacation brings a real challenge to keep children engaged and learning,” said Mayor Toby Barker. “We hope this summer activity guide helps families find fun activities that can help our youth discover the city and world around them in a positive and productive way.”
Barker added, “While this document is by no means a complete guide to everything available throughout the summer, it is a snapshot of activities available to our city’s youth from the public agencies with which we work and partner.”
In addition to the many camps and classes offered throughout Hattiesburg, the guide includes a directory of parks and green spaces, places to cool off throughout the summer and a variety of programs available at the Hattiesburg Library, Hattiesburg Community Arts Center, the Hattiesburg Zoo, the Hattiesburg Public School District and more.
