PANAMA CITY BEACH, Florida – (July 2020) – Following a semester of online learning, many families are ready to get out of the house and have some fun. Parents want to ensure that their kids continue to learn throughout the summer and avoid that dreaded summer slump of knowledge. The good news is that there are many summer activities that families can engage in that will not only be fun, but will keep them learning along the way, starting with WonderWorks Panama City Beach.
“We know the recent events of the world have taken a toll on families and their summer plans,” says Michael Walsingham, General Manager of WonderWorks Panama City Beach. “We want to still be a place for guests to come, have fun, and explore, while still being safe and healthy.”
Here are 10 great ways for kids to have fun this summer and stimulate their minds as they do it:
“Our building is a great way to make education exciting,” added Walsingham. “With distance and online learning, WonderWorks is great to get the mind going without even noticing you’re learning. Students missed school field trips here this year, but parents can still give them that learning experience over the summer.”
Following the pandemic closure, WonderWorks has taken new COVID-19 safety protocols to help stop the spread of the virus. They have reduced hours, enhanced cleaning efforts, social distancing measures, employee health screenings, and employee personal protective equipment (PPE).
