Things to Do in Columbia With Kids | June 2020

0

Events and happenings around Columbia look different than they used to. While many places aren’t offering in-person get togethers, they are offering virtual activities to keep kids entertained and learning. And while some places might not be open to the public at the moment, they are slowing opening up over the month of June and beyond.

So grab your planner, bookmark this page, and start making plans… there’s truly something for everyone and all comfort levels. We’ll continue to update this page as we find out more about what’s happening around town.

If you know of any fun family activities or Columbia events we have missed, please let us know in the comments or feel free to add it here.

Don’t forget to check out our Resources Page for all our local guides – parks & playgrounds, COVID-19 resources for families, summer reading programs, kids eat free, photographers, preschools, local shopping, and more!
