Lafayette, LA (KPEL News) - School's out and you don't want to see your kids live behind their screens all summer. The Lafayette Parish School System has some ideas that will help keep young minds engaged and even learning while they have fun.

They are offering nine camps, focusing on everything from energy to outer space, for first through eight graders. What's even better is that a few of them are offered at campuses across Lafayette Parish, so you can enroll your child in the one closest to you. You'll need to pay a fee, but scholarships are available if the cost is a burden.
