Winter break can be a tough time for parents, whether it's needing to take off work to keep an eye on the kids, or even just finding enough activities to keep them entertained for a whole week with no school. Riveredge Nature Center looks to help solve both problems by offering a special Winter Camp from December 27th to December 29th.
Led by experienced Riveredge staff, winter camp will open up Riveredge's 379 acres to a plethora of winter activities and allow students to spend their break having fun and staying active.
"Many of our campers have experienced our fantastic summer camp and are looking for something new. Winter camp offers many of the same games and activities but with the addition of plenty of campfires, campfire cooking, and of course snowshoes," explained Steff Merten, Riveredge Adventure Education Manager.
Camp options include a half day camp for youth ages 4 to 5 and a full day option for campers ages 6 to 12, as well as an optional overnight stay at the end of camp. Parents are encouraged to register their campers as soon as possible, as spots are limited and may fill. For those still unsure, Merten offered her top reason parents should sign their children up.
"Winter camp is a great way for kids to stay engaged in the natural world while being unplugged. Kids get to explore and try new things while building relationships, what could possibly be better?"
