We are moving to Heritage at the end of July and was wondering if anyone can give me info on what people do with their kids. I have a 1 1/2 and 11 year old. Do people sign them up for summer camps? Hang out at community pools? What is a normal routine? Here we go to the beach all summer long so I am not sure what we will do. I want to try to make the transition easy, especially for my 11 year old boy. THanks for any info. I greatly appreciate it.

I know in heritage you need to join the pool, and people seem to use it quite a bit. they are building another pool, but it is not complete yet and I don't know when that is going to happen. Does your son like ice hockey? or skateboarding? Lots of kids his age seem to play hockey or skate at the factory (close to heritage). Another place people seem to hang out is the Y, which you can join, and they have camps, indoor/outdoor pool, etc. You dont have to join to participate in the camps though.

There is a town pool, downtown wake forest, called holding pool, and that is open to the public from 1pm until 7pm, you can get a pass for the summer for 40 bucks or pay as you go. People seem to go there quite a bit and it is next door to a playground (which might be nice for your toddler).

If he is into computer things, there is a place called the digital circus that has camps, as well as a place at the factory called techkids.

hope this helps
Leigh

Pools, playing with friends....they'll make friends quickly down here...many other kids are new (or remember what it was like to be new, so they tend to form friendships easier then if you moved into an area that only saw a new kid once every year or so)....plenty of day-camps.

I would get the 11 year old into some day camps at The Factory a few days a week if nothing else.

There is also the beach area at Falls Lake.....

My daughter leaves for summer camp on Monday.....but we've done a few weeks of various day camps in the past. Many might be filled by now...but do call around...some might have openings or cancellations. There is a great free publication called Carolina Parent (I think, might be something similar) that you can pick up in many stores (or The Factory)....they should have something in there with area ideas.

Default Kids Stuff...Wake Forest Heritage

You got some great advice already! For your 1 1/2 year old, Kindermusik is in Heritage Wake Forest. They are very popular for the babies and toddlers. It's a mommy and me type class and I've attended with both my children when they were babies and toddlers. I met lots of nice moms that way. They also have preschool music classes. They have a really great reputation. They're called Kindermusik or Wake Forest Musik. I think their summer classes are almost over and they start fall classes after Labor day. Good Luck!
