With Summer ’18 around the corner, it is time to think of ideas and activities that will keep students busy and enjoying time with friends and family all summer long.
Individuals can dive into summer fun by planning a beach day, going on a hike, going to an outdoor concert or even skydiving. For those who are looking to relax, find a new book to read, paint your own pottery or start some do-it-yourself projects.
“This summer I will be taking summer classes, working and staying active,” said Ashley Hayden, junior. “In my free time, I will be painting and drawing because these are some of my passions.”
Others can spend time doing community service, working a summer job or exercising daily. Of course, spending time with family is a priority this summer for many. All the while students can take time off to travel or go camping with friends.
“This summer, I’m going to be by the pool with my family,” said Danielle Assini, sophomore. “I always enjoy quality time with them over the summer before I go back to school.”
For those looking to do some cooking or baking this summer, they should visit a nearby farmers market. Stop by a carnival, visit a museum, or take a day trip to a city near you.
Others may choose to buy tickets to a sporting event, like a summer baseball game. For those who have a love for the outdoors, spend a day on a boat and learn some water sports.
“Between all of the marlin and tuna fishing I plan to do this summer, I will also be surfing as much as I can,” said Michael Dylan McGuckin, sophomore. “The time I have left over is normally spent in the crossfit gym on the attempt to make myself a better person and athlete.”
Summer is the time to relax and have some fun, but students should be sure keep a healthy and active lifestyle. Try something you’ve never done before this summer, returning to Lynn in the fall with a story to share.
