Fall and Winter Break Camps for Kids

December, 2016

 

Many employees enjoy taking some quality time off during the holidays and others work right on through. This can be a kind of tricky time of year to manage if you are a working parent. Most schools hold some form of fall and winter breaks leaving parents to either choose to use vacation time to manage their care or devise alternative care plans for anywhere from one to three weeks - or sporadic days that fall here and there.

 

While kids enjoy the break from school, they can become a little stir-crazy if they spend too much time indoors and/or from being around family all of the time. School-aged children enjoy the opportunities that fall/winter camps can offer during the holidays. They can be a great way to break up the time, allow kids to have some fun and socialize with their friends while school is out. These camps can provide quality child care in exciting learning environments for when parents need to work over the holidays. Many fall/winter break camps offer part-time, day and week sessions to accommodate families who may need more flexible arrangements throughout the holidays.

 

Some popular programs that are planning to offer fall/winter break camps this year include:
