    Although Sun Valley Resort was built as a winter destination, it has evolved into the ultimate summer playground in the mountains, especially for kids.
    The resort offers two types of programs to keep kids of all ages active under the summer sun. All summer programs are open to the general public and resort guests.
    The PlaySchool facility near the Sun Valley Post Office is a headquarters of fun for children ages 5-and-under.
    Besides a playground, kids have access to supervised activities like ice skating, golf on the Sawtooth Putting Course, swimming, paddle boating, bowling, crafts and gondola rides. On Fridays, kids can hop on a wagon ride and enjoy a picnic at Trail Creek Cabin.
    PlaySchool programs run from two-hour, half-day to full-day lengths. Costs range from $78 for four hours to $105 for all-day programs with lunch. Call 622-2288 for details.
For the older set
    Kids 6-and-older can join the Young Summer Day Camp, a weekly program of activities in Sun Valley Village.
    All-day sessions include lunch and activities such as ice skating lessons, golf on the Sawtooth Putting Course, tennis, swimming, paddle boating, bowling, crafts, field games and gondola rides on Bald Mountain. Four-hour camps also are available.
    A horse-drawn wagon ride to Trail Creek Cabin for a picnic lunch is available on Fridays for an additional $16. Horseback riding is offered for kids at least 9 years old.
    Costs range from $78 for four hours to $105 for a full-day camp. Call 622-2288 or 622-2133 for details and reservations.
