School Breaks, Redefined
Let's explore the great nearby! Camp in a Box brings the magic of camp to your home during school break days.
Sure, school breaks look a little different this year, but that's no reason to stop exploring! During winter, mid-winter, and spring breaks from elementary school, the Y's Camp in a Box brings the magic of summer camp to wherever you are. Each week, the box will be filled with the tools you need to explore the great nearby, including classic camp activities like arts and crafts and hands-on STEM projects (science, technology, engineering and math). Plus, campers will stay connected with each other and their counselor through twice daily interactive meetings.
Mid-Winter Break registration closes February 8. Spring Break registration closes March 29.
Our Education & Curriculum Director has programmed school break weeks with great activities, each around a fun and engaging theme!
The only limitation is your imagination! This week is all about turning the ordinary into the extraordinary, transporting ourselves to foreign lands, and having as much fun as possible!
From mittens and scarves to sleigh rides and snowmen, this week is all about making the most of the chilly weather. Crafts to celebrate the season, games for friends and family, and maybe even a treat for your sweet tooth – this week has it all!
This week is all about building, experimenting, and journeying into the unknown. Join us while we spend each day this week exploring Science, Technology, Engineer, Arts, and Mathematics!
Dive into discovery! Explore the waves, marine ecosystems, and the depths of the ocean through crafts, games, science activities, and more.
Each box will feature age-appropriate activities that will vary each week based on the theme. Activities are designed with step-by-step instructions for kids to complete mostly on their own. Y camp counselors will be available to answer questions along the way.
Campers will also participate in interactive, live group virtual Zoom meetings twice per day with counselors who will offer guidance on activities and lead camp assemblies with songs, games, and more.
3 to 4 activities that promote investigation, inquiry, and discovery and encourage campers to explore the outdoor world around them.
