Monday, Dec 20th  - Thursday, Dec 23rd: Winter WonderWORLD!
The winter season is host to a diverse range of celebrations and community practices. Through inclusive hands-on activities, crafts, and exhibit tours, campers in this year’s Winter Camp I, will explore winter celebrations including Kwanzaa, the Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, and beyond.

Monday, Dec 27th - Thursday, Dec 30th: Winter WonderYOU!
Campers in Winter WonderYOU will explore and develop empathy around how they and others celebrate the new year, reflect on the past year, and set goals for how to have positive change during 2021. Outside of touring the museum exhibits, activities during this mini-camp will include a variety of crafts and games: making mindfulness jars, building future cities, and creating an exhibit about themselves; plus a special service project. 

We know that safety is one of the top considerations when choosing care for your child, and never more so than during a public health crisis. Learn how we plan to keep students and staff safe.

Space is limited. Following guidance from state and local health officials, our cohorts will be limited to 10 children.
