With summer right around the corner, students are trying to find fun activities to occupy themselves in the summer. In Rockbridge County, there are countless things to do, such as, fun hikes, swimming, going to the safari park, going to the drive-in theaters, etc. 

To find out these different fun activities, students were asked what they do during the summer and what they recommend others do. With how diverse of a student body RCHS has, there were many different unique activities brought up.

Sophomore Ethan Camden shares his ideas for those staying in Rockbridge.

“I recommend students to Kids Playce and play basketball…”

“I find it fun to hangout with friends and practice [basketball],” said Camden. 

Kids Playce is a local park in Lexington right down the street from Maury River Middle School.

Freshman Cate Skaggs shares what activity she suggests students to do in the summer.

“…play pickleball at the country club,” said Skaggs. 

The country club is a place where people from all ages are able to hangout. There is a pool, a golf course, and tennis courts where you can play pickleball. This is all surrounded by ponds and neighborhoods within the location. 

Skaggs and Camden also both recommended physical activity through sports, there are also some other activities that can be done. Some possible other activities include working or being in nature.

Sophomore Nadia Gaydos talks about where she recommends students to swim.

“Students should go to Jordan’s Point and jump off rocks,” said Gaydos.   

Jordan’s Point is a spot on the Maury River right below the Lexington bridge. It is a place to swim and possibly play some games, for example, like soccer on the field. When entering Jordan’s Point there’s a field for any kind of activity.

Senior Daniel Grim shares what activities he finds fun to do in the summer.

 “I like to float down the Maury [River],” said Grimm. 

A great place to start and end floating the Maury River is starting at Jordan’s Point and ending at Ben Salem WaySide. 

Sophomore Brittany Lopez works at Dunkin’ Donuts this summer.

Lopez shares her thoughts and recommendation for a job.

“I think students should go get a job so you can get cash,” said Lopez. 

Getting a summer job can give students a balance of responsibility and fun. When you have a job to get money that opens the amount of activities students can do in the summer. 

With summer coming up fast, it’s a time of endless possibilities & making memories. There are many different activities that students can choose from in Rockbridge County. From being outdoors with friends to working and earning money, there are many activities to incorporate into your summer.
