With all the different types of sushi whether it be cooked or raw, fish or chicken, or even cold or warm, there is bound to be something you'll like. So, if you're prepared to dip into a new culture this summer, try some sushi from a local restaurant.

Volunteer:

Volunteer at a Local Animal Shelter

Lots of animal shelters need a helping hand. Though volunteering does not normally pay, it can help you to get a different perspective on life and give you some experience that might be the deciding factor in schools and jobs you will potentially be chosen for in the future,

Summer Camps:

Check out what the Wesleyan School Has to Offer

While doing things day-to-day in the summer can be fun, going to a daily summer camp can help enrich your mind, teach you social skills, and (depending on where you are attending) a new skill. This summer, check out the Wesleyan School summer activities with a wide range of options. (Like: Athletics, Fine Arts, Wet & Wild etc.)

Learn to Cook

If the Wesleyan School programs are not your style, maybe something like 'Young Chefs Academy' is more your speed. This summer, you can learn how to cook like the best of them. Learning how to cook would be a great skill learn early on, a great way to impress your friends and family, and most importantly, a tasty creative outlet.

Go Out and Try New Things

This Summer, do not let boredom overtake you. Try something new and build an adventure for yourself. Even if you are not leaving your home town, your summer can still be filled of new and exciting things to do. Do not let your familiar surroundings stop you from exploring places that you thought you had all figured how.
