As the school year winds down, your kids’ excitement winds up. And let’s face it—as adults it’s hard not to get a little excited about summer ourselves. That is, until about three weeks after school lets out and those two words every parent dreads to hear surface: “I’m bored!”

It’s not easy keeping kids occupied over the summer once the thrill of being out of school has finally worn off. Of course part of what makes looking forward to summer so much fun for your kids are all the expectations of what they can do. But it’s hard to get excited about one more trip to the mall. That’s when parents start hearing the refrain from those old “Kid’s Summertime Blues”: “There’s nothing to do around here!”

In the late 1950s rockabilly artist Eddie Cochran lamented that “There ain’t no cure for the summertime blues.” Ah, poor Eddie didn’t know that 60 years later there would be a surefire cure for the summertime blues—in New Jersey, just an hour outside of Manhattan! It’s a place where parents never have to hear “I’m bored!” again! Here’s just a sample of the things you and your kids can do at Crystal Springs.

Activities at Crystal Springs

You can enjoy a dip any time at one of our year-round pools. Plus you and the kids will have a blast with the 26 thrilling rides, slides, and attractions at the Mountain Creek Waterpark.
