Happy summer! Here in Glendale, there are plenty of ways to beat the heat this season right here in town. As holistic dentists, we firmly believe that your health should be approached from a big picture wellness perspective. This means good hygiene, a balanced diet, and a lifestyle that involves exercise and time spent outdoors enjoying the fresh air. We have put together a list of some great local, family friendly opportunities to enjoy your summer in Glendale!
The city of Glendale offers a long list of fun day camps for kids! The camps range in target age group and activity options. Whether your child is four years old and could benefit from enrichment and social interaction with their peers in the Kinder Camp, or a teenager who would enjoy frequent field trips with the Travelin’ Teens Camp, there is something for everyone. Registration is already open, so head over to the city’s website to sign up!
The Pacific Community Pool in Glendale is open throughout the summer from May 27 to September 29, 2019. Swimming is the perfect way to cool off on those hot summer days! They offer recreation swimming, swim lessons and the opportunity to participate on competitive swimming teams. They have programs for new and experienced swimmers. For a full calendar of the lessons and events offered, check out their website!
If your child has a flair for the dramatic, consider signing them up for the Glendale Center Theatre summer acting camp! There are three different sessions offered, so you’ll be able to plan the camp around any family vacations you’ve got planned. Each session runs for three weeks. The theatre company is offering classes on sketch writing, performing on camera, improvising, and lots of other important aspects of the acting life. At the end of each session, students will be given the chance to prepare and perform solos! It’s not too late to sign up!
Who doesn’t love free yoga? Glendale residents are invited to take free outdoor yoga classes all summer! Classes will take place on Thursdays from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. on The Green at The Americana at Brand. This is the perfect opportunity to get a little exercise into your weekday routine, and maybe even do some shopping at the Americana, one of our favorite local gems. The yoga series is sponsored by Adventist Health Glendale. Yoga mats will be provided for first-time participants.
No matter how you spend your days, we hope that you enjoy your summer! If you or your family will be out in the sun all day, be sure to drink a lot of extra water and prepare meals with healthy, natural ingredients that offer a variety of nutrients that will fuel your body throughout the day.
