West Wichitans! Sign Your Kids Up for Summer Camp with Maize Recreation! - Sedgwick County Moms Network

One thing that I hear often living on the West side of Wichita is that there is nothing to do – that everything fun is in the center or east side of Wichita.

And that simply isn’t true.

Although Maize might be a small town on the West side, the Maize Recreation Commission still has plenty of amazing activities and summer camps for kids of all ages and interests (plus summer activities and classes for adults – check here.)
