Family Friendly Summer Activities 2021
Summer Kids
This past year has been extremely challenging. School is out, summer is in full swing, and COVID restrictions are winding down as more people are being vaccinated.  We understand that you are likely ready to get out of the house and enjoy our community. To help you locate options that are family-friendly, exciting, and budget-friendly we have compiled the below items.  If you don’t see what you are looking for, we urge you to check out VisitColumbusGA for more ideas.  

  • Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center
    Oxbow Meadows offers plenty of activities for people of all ages throughout the year. The programs are ramped up during the summer when kids are out of school. This year Oxbow Meadows will offer several unique programs like Radical Reptiles, Nature Nuggets, and Kids vs Wild, all of which are sure to be entertaining for your kids. You can view the entire calendar of summer programs here.
