Breaking News: There is no one perfect way to parent

Don’t worry, 82717 Parent: Our annual everything-kids-and-parenting edition of 82717 Life Magazine is here to help with insightful tips and tools to guide Campbell County moms and dads through some of the most challenging aspects of parenthood – from pregnancy through the school years.   

We ask parents, educators, psychology experts, business leaders, local authors and even bakers (yes, bakers!) as well as other city and county dwellers what they think is great about raising kids in the 82717. We get straight to the heart of all the latest news and recommendations for your kids’ health, emotional well-being, education and entertainment and also feature some of Gillette’s best summer camps and activities still accepting new enrollments.

We continue our look into the lives, livestock and Campbell County Fair projects of local 4-H’ers via 2019’s final installment of the all-new #CCFCloverKids series, and invite you and your littles to join us for the 99th Annual Campbell County Fair July 31 through August 3 at Cam-Plex, where family-friendly entertainment includes Octane Addictions freestyle show, Pig Wrestling, Ranch Rodeo and more.

Say goodbye to summer blues and boredom because there’s gobs of free entertainment in Campbell County this month, including Twinkle Time and Kachunga (also at the Campbell County Fair), and so much more. From 307 Mysteries escape rooms to Flight Zone’s countless trampolines and other offerings, to a heartfelt exposé into child advocacy and the real-life love story of two recovering addicts – get excited! (We know we are!)  There’s something in here for everyone.

So, friends, neighbors and visitors to Campbell County, welcome! Inside this issue of 82717 Parent, where adults and kids can learn real-life skills from the pros, other parents and locals. We hope you find some helpful gadgets, apps and pointers, as well as uplifting stories and local happenings that bring you wisdom, hope and happiness.
