Spring Break Camps

It seems as though the minute Valentine’s Day is over, the days fly by until we hit Easter. With the weather we had last week, its obvious that Spring has sprung … or is trying to spring!

And with that comes Spring Break! While our public schools receive the week before Easter off, private schools are taking the week after Easter to take a break. Not planning to go away? Want to know of some options for kids? We’ve handpicked a few interesting camps that will certainly draw your children’s curiosity and keep them active and engaged while school is out.
