Our Spring 2021 issue

Though it doesn’t yet feel like spring full time, summer will be here before we know it. So it’s time to start planning what to do with the kids when school lets out.

Our Spring issue includes the popular annual Summer Camp Guide, the most comprehensive resource of its kind in Central Ohio. After some organizations took a pandemic-related hiatus in 2020, camps are back with a mix of in-person and virtual programming. You’ll find a story about how they are adapting this year, as well as our huge guide featuring 196 camp options in 12 categories to fit any interest and budget.

If you haven’t yet grabbed a copy, you won’t want to miss it.

Also in this issue are must-read features on how the pandemic is impacting students' mental health, tips to help kids cope with grief, and a look at the newfound appreciation that parents and teachers have gained for each other in this crazy time of Zoom sessions, hybrid learning and the like.

Learn how the Childhood League Center is helping children with special needs using early intervention, and how CelebrateOne is tackling the racial disparity behind local infant mortality. Find out how Columbus Metropolitan Library has adapted to serve customers during this tumultuous time. And check out the Top Pediatric Dentists and Orthodontists in Central Ohio and find out if your provider is among them.

You’ll find family fun ideas as well, including The Go-To-Guide, featuring 22 playgrounds; a guide to Ohio zip lines; a cute spring craft; and much more
