Winter Break Camp

Program description

School break camps provide an engaging experience for students during their time out of school. Each day offers a different topic for new experiences. Camps are sold by day, allowing parents to choose the date and theme that works for their families.


Wednesday, Jan. 2 | Cultural Celebration
How do different cultures celebrate holidays and how do they compare to one another? We will have a fun, hands-on morning exploring different cultural celebrations.

Thursday, Jan. 3 | Winter Science
How do snow crystals form? Why do some animals hibernate? How do animals stay warm during the cold, blustery season? Investigate these questions and more as we discover the science of winter.

Friday, Jan. 4 | Art with Bricks
We’ll get creative using bricks of all shapes and sizes to create a variety of print patterns, sculptures and artwork in a rainbow of colors.
