You may remember counting down the days until school lets out for the summer and it's definitely that time of year! Let's look at some of the dates our area elementary and middle schools are getting out this year.

 

Rock Island: June 8th, 2015

Moline: June 5th, 2015

East Moline: June 2nd, 2015

Davenport: May 29th, 2015

Bettendorf: May 28th, 2015

 

And even though the days are winding down. It's not too late to sign your kids up for summer camp!

 

Around the Quad Cities there are dozens of camps that you can enroll your child in!

Some popular camps include camps at the Figge, Putnam, area YMCA’s, River Music Experience, Boys and Girls Club.  Even with school out for the summer, experts who work in child care services say it's important that there's still a good balance in a kid's day.

 

“Research shows us that children lose knowledge during the summer that makes sense they're off for 12 weeks sometimes just playing video games and sleeping in and so those children that were behind when the school year ended actually end up further behind by the time they got back to school in the fall. That's why it's really important that we really work on combating summer loss for children,” said Deb Gustafson, Executive Director YMCA Child Care & Family Services, Scott County.
