About the Guide
With a multimedia approach, the program reaches over 800,000 people each month via digital, social media, print, e-newsletters and games. The experienced team at Chesapeake Family Life knows what families like and with the Summer Fun Guide, they deliver. The Summer Fun Guide was awarded the Gold Award from the Parenting Media Association for the 2021 and 2022 editions. Here is what judges had to say, “The Summer Fun Guide is a marvelous example of a well-executed concept. It quite literally flows
from page to page, taking readers on a journey that is fun, colorful and educational. The
illustrations are excellent and the integrations with games and puzzles is admirable. This is a section to explore, to interact with, and to enjoy … not just to read.”
Distributed at the beginning of June, the print guide contains ideas, facts and great destinations for families. Advertisers are in front of families from June through the end of August with the interactive games and activities built into the Summer Fun Guide, as well as promotions via the Facebook Group: Things to Do in Maryland, bi-weekly e-newsletter links and targeted digital custom content.
