Summer will be here before you know it. The 2014 Summer Opportunities Fair will exhibit athletic, educational, travel and artistic camps and programs to help families prepare for an exciting and fun-packed season.

This year’s fair will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, at Mary Institute and Country Day School.

The volunteer-powered fair, which is free and open to the public, will give families and children of all ages a chance to explore opportunities for local, national and international summer activities, from soccer and service-learning to horseback riding and art. John Burroughs School, Mary Institute and Saint Louis Country Day School and Whitfield School are sponsoring the event.

Those unable to the event can visit the ‘Virtual Fair,’ online from mid-February to mid-September to get information about the programs offered. Go to summeropportunitiesfair.org/fairdetails/virtualfair.php for details.
