To update mailing addresses, visit https://www.wvinroads.org or call (877) 716-1212. Others may also be eligible, but the monthly income for a family of four may not exceed $2,092.

Pathways to Summer Fun resource listing outlines

fun learning experiences opportunities for local youth

 

HUNTINGTON Summer is in full swing.

With many school years coming to a close, parents and caregivers could already be thinking about how to occupy their children over the summer.

The Cabell County Family Resource Network, in partnership with the Cabell Huntington Convention and Visitors Bureau, Cabell County Student Empowerment Team and Hourglass Omnimedia, has all of the summer fun answers to parents’ most pressing questions. It recently released the Pathways to Summer Fun flier and database for Cabell County activities and beyond. Children don’t have to leave the region to have a fun, educational summer.

The Cabell County Student Empowerment Team, a part of the Cabell County Family Resource Network, has always promoted children having caring adults in their lives, safe places to learn and grow, get a healthy start, develop marketable skills and learn to give back to the community. The organization uses the “5 Basics of America’s Promise” to guide all local activities. West Virginia is identified as one of 15 states that has passed legislation to keep students learning in the summer.

“Children are our future leaders and need experiences to help them develop into lifelong learners,” said Debra Harris Bowyer, Cabell County FRN coordinator. “This includes meaningful summer time experiences, as well as the regular school year. Our community has a wealth of service agencies, parks, recreation, technology, arts and camps to offer families with children and youth these opportunities. Navigating all of those resources can be challenging, so we have compiled as many sources to provide a ‘Pathway to Summer Fun.’ In fact, it is more than just fun. According to the National Summer Learning Association, children have so many ways they can keep their brains active when the school year ends with activities like cooking, crafts, nature walks, reading and more. These activities spark curiosity and allow children to follow written and oral directions. There are so many benefits, and we encourage you to browse the list and see what interests your child.”

This listing of summer camps and enrichment activities have been compiled for a quick glance into all the different pathways your children and youth can explore for fun learning experiences this summer. The list offers camps, arts and crafts, sports and other enrichment activities. Instruction during the summer has the potential to stop summer learning losses. Extended learning is essential for children to achieve reading success by the end of third grade.

Confirm dates, times, and details with each program. A full list with links to each program can be found at bit.ly/cabellfrnsummerfun and cabellfrn.org.

“I was so excited when I learned about this list!” said Tyson Compton, president of the Cabell-Huntington Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Our job at the CVB is to let both visitors and local people know what they can see and do in our community, and this list does just that. It is such a valuable resource for families who are looking for summer events. These are all trusted partners and the information makes it so easy to plan activities with just a few clicks.”

Here are some examples of listings on the flier and on cabellfrn.org:

 

  • Funington: Huntington Fun For Kids offers the opportunity to see, play, and explore every week day during the months of June and July at Huntington Museum of Art, Camden Park, Heritage Farm, and Greater Huntington Parks and Recreation. Go to com/Funington for more information.

 

 

  • Greater Huntington Parks and Recreation District: Join the GHPRD Recreation Team for a fun new activity at a different park each Monday in June and July at 1 p.m., http://www.ghprd.org

 

  • Barboursville Park: Fun events for kids and families are scheduled all summer long com/BvilleParksRec/

 

“As a company owner in Cabell County, I love helping the next generation get positive starts in their lives,” said Kaylin Staten, CEO of Hourglass Omnimedia. “This list allows children to keep learning in the summer months in a variety of fun ways. It was a natural fit to want to help communicate about the great things going on in The Jewel City and beyond. Plus, your child has no excuse to be bored this summer with so many awesome things going on!”

Marshall to host 6th Cyber Safety Summit for middle-school students and local community – sessions Oct 23 & 24

Marshall to host 6th Cyber Safety Summit for middle-school students and local community

The Marshall University Digital Forensics and Information Assurance program will host the 6th annual Cyber Safety Summit for middle-school students and the local community Oct. 23-24 in Huntington. This year’s event will have two sessions.

The first will be tailored for middle-school students and will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday, Oct. 23, at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena.

A session for parents and adults will be from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24, at Huntington East Middle School. Participants can learn how to prevent cyber bullying, keep themselves and their families safe online, handle the dangers of social media, keep their information and computers safe, and identify scams. They can also find out how and why criminals target them and more.

“We recognize the need for this type of education,” said John Sammons, director of the Digital Forensics and Information Assurance program at Marshall University. “Technology is a huge part of most children’s lives, particularly from middle school going forward. It’s only smart and prudent to give them the awareness and skills to keep themselves safe online.” “Parents are often far behind the kids when it comes to technology,” Sammons said. “We would like to provide them with as much information as we can to help them protect their children.”

This event is attended by hundreds of students from the Tri-State region each year. It is sponsored by the Digital Forensics and Information Assurance program, the Huntington Police Department, the FBI and the Appalachian Institute of Digital Evidence.

Teachers can register their classes for a field trip to the summit. Reserve seats before Oct. 19 by contacting John Sammons at sammons17@marshall.edu or by calling 304-696-7241.
