Philly Spring Break Camps 2022
School is about to be out, do you have plans for your Philly kids? Camps and workshops, coming up!
No one deserves a vacation right now more than YOU after two years of pandemic parenting. But a vacation isn’t always in the cards. Maybe you used up all your PTO on quarantine sick days, or you’re saving it up for a big summer trip. Or maybe you’ll be home during spring break but need to get the kiddos out of the house for a bit so you can relax (look it up, it’s a real word, I promise!). Whatever the reason, we have a got a great line-up of spring break camps for you. Some run every day, some are just a day or two. But there’s a fun activity for almost everyone here in our list! (Know one we missed? Email me and I’ll add it!)
