Baton Rouge summer programs
BATON ROUGE- Studies show students experience learning losses when they don't engage in educational activities during the summer. Without those activities, students can fall behind by up to two months in subjects like math, reading, and spelling.
Now, groups like Big Buddy are working to keep that from happening, and keep kids' brains and bodies active over the summer.
"It's very important, no matter what you're planning this summer, that people are engaged in some kind of quality activities," says Gay Mack, with the Big Buddy program. "They can be structured like at the Big Buddy program, or it can be at home, just the parents setting a plan."
There are a bunch of different activities listed on Big Buddy's website that kids can participate in, and will keep them active and prepared for the next school year.
Below are some links to summer programs offered by various organizations throughout Baton Rouge.
Many area schools and churches have summer programs as well.
