Spring Break can be tons of fun and lots of local families head to the beaches or mountains to enjoy a little R&R together. However, for every mom and dad that has vacation time socked away, there are several who must work (grown-up life is tough) or just stay in town. We know those families are looking for activities to keep little Johnny and Susie busy. Below are a few options to consider but hurry because these camps are few and far between and tend to fill up fast!
Exploring the Cosmos: Students will explore the mystery and wonder of outer space in this camp that combines hands-on experimentation with real world learning. From exploring what it would be like to live in space to experiencing the challenges of sending a man to the moon, students will try out the many roles involved in space exploration, from astronaut to mission control.
Alexander’s Martial Arts
This camp is a great way to introduce grade school aged kids to the personal development benefits offered at Alexander’s. This approach to martial arts is based on challenging kids to reach specific goals in form of belts or stripes and to reward these achievements and then reset goals to the next level. In order to be successful, the kids must develop certain personality traits or habits like self-discipline, focus, and confidence. As the achievements get more demanding, the personal growth necessary to support those achievements also increases. Campers will get a whole month’s training crammed into a week along with field trips, swimming, and a ton of fun.
SPECIAL NOTE: Camp includes a school t-shirt, karate pants, belt, four field trips (2 swimming, Bricks for Kids, and Park Day), and eight Karate classes during the week.

With mini-camps that include themes like Frozen, Teenage Brick Turtles, Minecraft, Ninjago, Clash of Bricks and more, these camps are sure to please any Lego fan! Ages 5+
