No morning routine…leave the lunch boxes behind…forget the carpool line…it’s almost spring break! And while days of leisure sure sound great, work, daily life, and just keeping the peace in the house may demand a little more structure than a week-long break offers.
Fear not, mom. There are a lot of opportunities for kid-sized entertainment with the spring break camps offered around the Queen City. Check out these spots for one day or the entire week!
Full-day camps with a variety of themes offered March 25 - April 1 for students in grades K-5.
