Summer Exclusive Fun

Pools & Splash Pads
This list was first gathered & published in a 2010
issue of Preschool Life (now Madison with Kids).
Organically researched & built, this is the original &
most complete list you'll find of outdoor pools &
splash pads in Dane County.

Outdoor Music Concerts
Being the wife of an active musician, and fan of
relaxing summer nights with music in the air, this list
was organically built because I love that events such
as Concerts on the Square & now so many other
outdoor music venues are an enjoyable activity for
ADULTS to relax - with kids in tow! (In other words,
this is how we sneak in our adult time; bubbles &
snacks make fantastic "baby sitters" as kids hang out
in kid-size camp chairs, or spread out on a picnic

Summer Camp Listings
Whether you're needing full-time care for children all
summer long, or looking for part-day, regular or
occasional programs to provide structure and
activities for your kids while school is out, you'll find a
variety of options to meet different interests,
schedules and locations around the community.

Recurring Summer Activities for Kids
& Families

summer & fall for many years. Ideas you'll find
include descriptions and links to summer-exclusive
programs, including:

  • Lakeside Kids at Monona Terrace
