Located in Palm Beach County, Lake Worth, FL is home to miles of sandy beaches and a variety of recreational facilities and activities for local families and visitors alike. The Lake Worth Recreation Department offers sports camps, tennis and swimming lessons and classes for children and teenagers in the community.1 The Lake Worth Library invites children and teenagers to take advantage of its monthly craft day held on a drop-in basis one Saturday afternoon a month. The library also offers a summer-long reading and craft program for the community’s children, tweens and teenagers. In nearby Boynton Beach, the Schoolhouse Children’s Museum and Learning Center offers a variety of learning experiences and adventures for children aged 2-17, sometimes accompanied by parents or grandparents. Educational adventures are also available at the McGinty Aquariums, located at the South Florida Science Museum. The aquariums consist of dozens of saltwater and freshwater tanks housing sharks, alligators and animals from around the world. There is also a “touch tank” so visitors can examine and hold a variety of aquatic creatures. Older children and teenagers might be drawn to the Palm Beach Maritime Museum which houses, among other things, John F. Kennedy’s bunker, a nuclear war contingency facility constructed during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Lake Worth

The instability of a family member with psychological issues can be overwhelming and scary.  The National Alliance of Mental Illness offers you a full spectrum of programs, resources and education to help guide you through the many challenges one can face during this trying time.  Through support groups, NAMI encourages parents and children to share their experiences with others also living in similar situations. They have created free workshops and presentations lead by health professionals, with tips on warning signs and symptoms.  For more information please contact, 561-588-3477.2

Sometimes in life we can find ourselves in precarious money situations; not knowing how you will provide food for your family might become a factor. Christians Reaching Out to Society provides a number of services for the needy community in Lake Worth such as:  collecting food donations and dispersing emergency food.  They also provide 3 different types of summer camps June – August for children; day, residential and sleepaway, depending on your specific needs.3

We all want the best for our children but do not always have the means to provide it. Head Start is a childcare facility for low income, pregnant women and families looking to provide their young children, from birth to age 3, with a stronger development in cognitive, social and emotional learning.  They provide a safe environment filled with creative learning, giving children the skills they need to establish early in life.

Not all kids learn in the same fashion or at the same pace, some parents out there might be considering alternative ways to educate their children.  Lake Worth East County Homeschoolers is a curriculum-based support group, designed for like-minded families to work together as a community.  Your child’s learning will include field trips, organized classes, and monthly parent meetings.
