Heard Winter Mini Camp

Looking for something fun for your kids to do during the winter break? Each mini-camp explores a different topic and includes indoor and outdoor activities. Some even have a take-home project!

Join us for one (or more) of the mini camps during the winter break. Spaces are limited and preregistration is required.
