My preteens will be doing a lot structured activities this summer. All of them will be taking some sort of lesson or class at least once a week (music lessons, gymnastics, dance).
In addition to that, we have a lot of less structured activites planned. Once a week we're going to barge in on a homeschooling park day (we don't homeschool, but we used to and we have a lot of friends who go to this park day). There are kids of a variety of ages at this park day, so everyone has someone to hang out with. We get together with good friends at least once a week. We also will go to the library/out to lunch with DH/run errands one day per week.
Then there's lots of random things we'll do as a family on a less regular basis- go camping, go hiking (day trips), museums, zoos, historical sites,
We also entertain a lot, especially in the summer. Many of our friends have children the same age as our kids, so we'll hang out together. The adults will sit around a bonfire and chat while the kids play video games, run around in the woods, or hang out on their own.
