FamilyFun.com is a good, clean website you can sign up for, it is from Disney.
I teach at a Christian School and have used a lot of their ideas in my classroom.

Check into a local church - some have instead of VBS, Sports Camps or even a Summer Camp, many are very inexpensive. Have a family game night - let the kids choose the game (My brother and I always loved that growing up.). Go bowling!!! Have a pizza party and let them bring over a few friends to join in on the fun. Or even have your own block party in the neighborhood - great way to meet the people in the neighborhood and display God's love to them. Zoos, Amusement Parks are always fun... libraries are always having free events with story times, magic shows, etc. Check out your local library. Although going places is fun, don't forget to have some "down" time and really get into the heart of your kids - those will always be the most memorable years down the road and your kids will love being "heard".

VBS like Heather mentioned. We also are going on a field trip or two with our homeschool group. The Zoo is always fun for a day or two.

A lot of libraries have some fun programs, and there are a bunch of reading programs if you google. I know Build-a-Bear used to have a summer program where kids could earn a small back-to-school kit.

Like Heather, we go to Walmart or Dollar Tree and get lots of bubbles and chalk and easy fun (and inexpensive) things for the kids to play with.

Swimming lessons. I can't believe how many kids don't take them.
They are invaluable. Just too scary to think about. We try to organize
Beach trips and visits to local spots. If I can find things that ate fun but with educational
Portion I do. Maybe your town has day camp? They often advertise what each
Weeeks theme will be so you can pick and choose. Good luck

Our summer has consisted of Vacation Bible School, trips to the park, hiking, and a few trips to the zoo and aquarium. We also went to wal-mart and bought jump ropes and bubbles. Both very cheap, but tons of fun!!
