You know the song, you love the song, now it’s time to live the song. Thursday evenings, from July 11 – August 29 at 6 p.m., come to Martini Shell Park and Zumba! For 45 minutes, leap and sway to Latin rhythms and work off all that late-night ice cream and gelato. Bring sneakers, water, and your whole family! It’s perfect for ages six and up, and no reservations are required. Since it’s an outdoor class, rain will cancel; call 617-333-7405 for rain notice.

Want to get into camping but don’t know a tent from a tether? This weekend, bring your family to Otter River State Forest and become a pro! By the end of the weekend, you’ll know all about the fundamentals of camping, including cooking, sleeping, and general good practices. Different activities may include a staff-led nature hike, fishing, archery, and many more. To find out more information, and to register for the program, call or email Julie Martin at 617-626-4926 or Julie.martin@state.ma.us.

Love the outdoors but don’t want to spend an entire weekend in the midst of Mother Nature? Instead, join local writer and scholar Lauren Stevens Saturday morning in Mount Greylock State Reservation on a hike to the summit of Mount Greylock. Traveled by Thoreau, you have the option of a 6-mile or 11-mile roundtrip. Moderate to strenuous in difficulty; don’t forget a sturdy pair of hiking boots, water, lunch, and a snack. For additional information, call 413-499-4262.
