As a parent trying to keep children entertained yet make sure they are well taken care of, sometimes it’s all just overwhelming. What school should I sent my child to? How do I start saving for college? Where are the best dentists in the area? What summer camp should I choose?
All of these questions and more will be answered at the Midlands Kids Fest & Summer Camp Fair presented by Absolute Total Care. The Fest will be hosted on Saturday, April 1 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Jamil Shrine Temple in Columbia. SAVE THE DATE!
Sharing Information, Having Fun
In its fourth year, the Kids Fest’s purpose is to share information about health and wellness, special needs, safety, summer camps, education, insurance, child care, and other important topics. The goal is to help parents and caregivers make informed decisions for their families by giving them easy access to some of the best local products, services, and entertainment available to them.
Some confirmed vendors are Camp Canaan, Maximized Living Health Center, Mosquito Authority, Prudential Financial, South Carolina State Museum, and Sunshine House, just to name a few.
