Spring Break Camps 2012

School breaks can be stressful! Parents that work need coverage, holidays need preparing for, families come to visit….stress!!

Now, I’m not saying I know from experience (but I’m not saying I don’t know either), but having to leave twice a day to pick up your child from a camp (even if it’s half day) can provide a much needed break from the house and anyone in it that’s not normally there!  Further, I promise that I won’t tell anyone in your house who’s not normally there that you CAN, in fact, drop your child off at art camp and come back if you’d like to tell them you have to stay.

This is not a place of judgement.

In any event, whether you need extended coverage or are just looking to indulge one of your child’s passions, I hope that this list will help! If you know of a camp option that we’ve missed, shoot me an email or leave a comment and we’ll be sure to get it added ASAP! 

Spring is almost here even though this Winter has felt like Spring! It’s almost time for Spring Break Camp. Spring Break Camp runs from April 2nd to the 6th and features many activities and events. This camp is open to everybody, whether you are a student or not. Check out the pdf poster for this camp and mark it down on your Calendar.
