If you want to become very familiar with the warm weather resources being offered by the City of High Point and other groups in the area, you’ll probably want to set aside some extra time this weekend to do so. The City of High Point Human Relations Division has announced that it will host the inaugural “Spring into Summer Family Resource Fair” on Saturday, April 6.

In addition to things like fun activities and games, the resource fair will allow High Point families to familiarize many of High Point’s summer youth enrichment programs such as summer camps, tutoring, swimming lessons, childcare options and kindergarten registration.

Other community resource providers offering a variety of programs will also be in attendance.

The Family Resource Fair, which will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the High Point Oak View Recreation Center, is being held in partnership with Guilford County Schools Guilford Parent Academy, High Point University’s Center for Community Engagement, Shift_ed and High Point Schools Partnership.

The first 800 attendees will receive a Chick-Fil-A boxed lunch on a first-come, first-serve basis, but after that there will be no more free lunches for attendees.

 City of High Point Human Relations Manager Rase McCray said there’s a lot of diversity in the programs being offered this summer and that there are a bunch of options people should know about.

“High Point has many wonderful summer youth enrichment providers, each with different schedules, costs and programmatic goals,” McCray said, hinting that there will be more of this type of fair in the future.  “We hope the Spring into Summer resource fair can become a central place for families to easily compare those options and get their students registered.”
