After school activities are important for kids to get involved in. Studies have shown that children who are involved in after school activities increases their overall academic performance. Metro Family Magazine has come up with a great list of activities for kids:

Edmond Parks and Recreation: Archery

Gabrielle Parker, 9, of Enid takes aim during a Junior Olympic Archery Development Club shoot put on by the Trosper Archery Club on Saturday, August 24, 2013, at Trosper Park in Oklahoma City. Parker has come down from Enid about 4 times this summer and was one of over 60 participants, from beginners to intermediates, that took part in the shoot which takes place every Saturday.
