Plans for spring break?  I know some people plan trips, some plan staycations and some don't plan anything at all.  I am not one to judge,so don't worry about that here.  I have recently learned that some places have "mini camp" type events planned for spring break that is basically a sneak peak to their camps they offer during the summer.  While I LOVE the thought of that, as well as the thought of sending Broxton to a day camp of some sorts, lets just be totally honest.  It is not in the budget.  Remember, we have a new baby!!!!   That is fine with ALL of us,as we find ways to make the most out of our summers as it is!  I did want to share two camps that I recently learned about in case you were looking for something to sign your children up for this year.  

Up first, we had the chance to go and visit Trees Atlanta not too long ago.  It is right there on the BeltLine and I know it will be a hit for kids of all ages.( If they like being outside.) They have camps for spring break and more for the summer.  If you are near there, I suggest checking it out.  Looks pretty fun and exciting, just not close to us and for sure out of our price range.  Read more about it below and make sure to visit their site to learn more.   
Our exciting new environmental education and research center is ideally suited for classes, workshops, special exhibits, and exploration for all ages. The TreeHouse is adjacent to the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum, which serves as an outdoor classroom and laboratory for adult and youth programs. This is the first significant expansion for Trees Atlanta in more than 30 years!
Types of programs offered at the TreeHouse include: 
  • Homeschool environmental science classes
  • Girl Scout & Boy Scout badge programs
  • Citizen science projects/STEM
  • Arboretum adventures
  • Pre-school story time
  • Day camps ($10 per camper referral fee) 
  • and more! 
Many of these programs are free to the public!
The other?  Kindercare.  I know I shared more about their early learning program when I blogged about them before, but I sure enough wish they had a Kindercare near us. They have great summer camps lined up (*you can do a sneak peak over spring break to make sure it is something you and your child both will enjoy knowing they are going to daily!)  
I am just really impressed with Kindercare.  
They seem so awesome on open communication with the parents. 
* They have bulletin boards when you enter (and in each classroom) letting you know what is currently going on and what is planned for later events.  
* They send home papers letting you know what your child is learning.  ( I know for us, it has always been like pulling teeth to get any information as to what goes on each day, this is great! They also incorporate education with the young ones, so they might not be able to speak to tell you what is going on, but you can read the sheets to know what they do all day long.)
* They have their daily schedule posted so that you always know what happens when.

I love that they really get into decorating the place.  When we were there it was Dr. Seuss theme (for his birthday) and they had all the doors decorated.  They also have photos of the students throughout their classroom with what they are learning. 

I love that they make learning FUN.

As fun and educational as their daily school is, I can only imagine the amount of fun and education they have planned for summer camp!!!
Make sure you head over to see what they offer and if it is a great fit for you!

  1. I'm so annoyed...I was supposed to sign up for one today. Guess what? Alissa forgot! At lunch time I remembered and they were full. It's the boy's favorite camp to! The outdoor one.

  2. I'd like to put my youngest and my teen daughter in camp. I think they'd both enjoy it. Not my call this year, for the first time ever. Oy vey! ;)
