Summer Programs/Workshops for Kids 2013

For a while now, I have been busy looking for summer programs and workshops near our area. I think participating in workshops/activities is good way to maximize the summer breaks of children. Instead of watching TV or playing all day, children can widen their knowledge and interest with educational activities.

So here are some of the summer programs I have researched and currently considering for my nieces and daughter:

McDo Kiddie Crew Workshop
The registration for the McDo Kiddie Crew is ongoing until April 30, 2013 and I already registered my three nieces for this workshop. This is for kids 6 to 12 years old but the store manager I talked to said that they accept kids as young as 4 years old. Jollibee also has a program similar to this.

The workshop fee is very sulit because for only Php550, a child would get to have 5 consecutive days of 2-hour workshop. The fee includes workshop materials (T-shirt, cap, ID lace, bag, workshop materials, graduation certificate) and meal.
Workshop Schedules: April 1-5, April 8-12, April 15-19, April 22-26, April 29-May 3, May 6-10, May 13-17, May 20-24, May 27-31

Museo Pambata's Art Workshops
Museo Pambata always has these fun educational events for kids but I have never been or taken my daughter or nieces to one because it is quite far from our place. They also have art workshops this summer but I don't think I can enroll my nieces here because of the location. Anyway for those who are interested, here are the art workshop schedules of Museo Pambata for summer 2013:

Bert Lozada Swimming School
I think knowing how to swim is an essential life skill. Aside from being an activity that can improve overall health, it can also instill discipline. So I am planning to enroll my daughter to a swimming program this summer and I am considering Bert Lozada swimming school. As indicated in their website (, they have swimming courses for all ages and a course usually includes 10 sessions. The fee (Php3000 to Php5000) varies per location. Their summer 2013 swimming programs starts on April 1. They can be contacted via (02)-563-5532.

Musikgarten Manila
I once enrolled my daughter for 4 sessions of their toddler music class and I find the teacher and all the staff very friendly. My daughter really enjoyed the music and activities. They also offer voice and instruments lessons and I want to enroll my daughter for a one-on one piano class. They are soon opening a branch in Robinsons Galleria.
