For many Swedish children summer means travel abroad, visits to amusement parks, swimming and lazy days at the family's summer cottage. But some children famililes can not afford those kinds of activites.

Only one out of every three Swedish municipalities offers free summertime activities for children, according to Agneta Åhlund of the Save the Children foundation.

"We know that active free-time activities lead to better health, a stronger social network and better academic performance. This is very important," Agneta Åhlund tells Swedish Radio.
