EDITOR can be a great way to implement some sort of structure in the day. This summer, treat yourself by taking time to fill your own bucket. I know that the kids take up most of your time, but how many times have we heard the expression to truly love someone else we need to love ourselves first? Take an hour yoga class, walk in the park or buy a new lipstick can feel like a brand-new start. Have a happy summer! South Jersey MOM will be hosting RiverWind’s Sunset Music Festival July 13th, 5:30pm to 10:30pm. There will be vendors, free face painting and you can dance the night away with the family to live music.✲ Your friend & fellow MOM,

ummer is finally here and it’s time to relax and enjoy the break with your kids. But how does one relax with a house full of kids for the summer? This is the ultimate mom challenge to make the best of a lighter schedule that results in less structure. I eventually found an equation that worked in my house… send the kids to camp! When my kids were small, I felt enough like a camp counselor myself keeping them busy. But allowing spontaneity to create down time and relaxation can make the day ten times better! Keeping a daily activity like reading

The Borough of Collingswood, Camden County: Fun Around Every Corner

f your travels through South Jersey have never lead your family to Collingswood, you are missing something special! With a population of just under 14,000 residents, Collingswood is a relatively small borough in Camden County. Planted shortly after the end of the Civil War, the seeds of the town grew quickly, in part because it was a popular stop on the Pennsylvania Railroad in route to Atlantic City. Collingswood continued to blossom over the course of time, surviving many periods of turbulence and today, everywhere you turn, there is something amazing to discover in Collingswood. Adorning the list of several “bests” including that of Forbes Magazine Top Ten Transformed cities of America, Collingswood is easily accessible to Philadelphia. However, you do not need to leave the borough to find a plethora of fun. If you are seeking a show, concert or even searching for a wedding venue, you can find all three at the Scottish Rite Auditorium. With a history linked to a descendant of the Collings Family, it is home to the Collingswood Community Theater and hosts various concerts. Couple a show with one of the many wonderful restaurants, recognized by culinary greats, found in Collingswood, for the perfect adult night out. If you seek outdoor adventure, you will want to visit Knight Park. This seventy-acre park boasts athletic fields, biking/walking paths, and a playground. Throughout the summer evenings on Tuesdays and Thursdays, you can watch a family-friendly movie on the big screen; just bring your blanket and snacks. You can also find fresh air and fresh, local produce at the weekly Farmer’s Market held on Saturdays during the summer. The eco-friendly market does not provide bags for shopping. Be sure to bring your own, or for even more family fun, bring an old T-shirt and stop by the Bag Table where you can upcycle that shirt into a market bag. Over the course of the month, there are events of varying excitement. On the fourth Wednesday night of the month, you will find the Philadelphia Mummers striding down the streets. Classic Cars line the road on the third Thursday of every month for cruise night with live music, food, and fancy cars. Experience the arts every second Saturday as artist and musicians are stationed all over for your musical delight and artist eye. Be sure to check the webpage or follow the Borough of Collingswood Facebook page for up to the minute information. There is always an adventure for those for all ages in Collingswood. It is simply a small town with a huge personality.

We believe in encouraging our students to express themselves.

Private Special Education … Sometimes, it starts with a twinkle in the eye. Just a little spark of curiosity that soon blossoms into a journey of discovery, learning and achievement. That’s because at our private special education schools, we see beyond a child’s disability, and awaken the joy and creative expression within. Our schools are welcoming places where students feel at home and are able to enjoy a rich and rewarding social life. Our students feel cherished, well cared for and respected for a very good reason—it is part of our mission and our commitment. Students at our special education schools experience a school day as it should be—filled with discovery, achievement, learning and friendship. Here, they have people they know they can count on—outstanding teachers, therapists, counselors, psychologists and job coaches who constantly encourage and support them.

an Option You Should Know About! With individualized attention, on-site therapies and vocational training, our schools deliver unparalleled services for students with special needs. Our New Jersey Department of Education certified special education teachers, licensed therapists and counselors provide expert, advanced instruction and support … along with plenty of smiles.

These unique services are provided at NO COST for families. Find out if private special education is the right fit for your child. Our staff can help answer your questions. To find out more about what programs may be right for your child, call us at 1-800-697-8555 or visit
