Winter Break Camps 2015

We’re taking full advantage of all of the New Year cheer by inviting children, grades 1-6, to join a series of full-day programming.  Come for just one day, or join us for all six, as we explore the traditional music, games, tastes and unique festivities of winter-time and first-of-the-year celebrations from all corners of the globe. (Parents please note: although some of the celebrations we will discover are born out of deeply held spiritual beliefs, this programming will focus on traditions, not religions.)

Camps run from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. with optional extended care until 5:30 p.m. We have more specific information for you regarding fees and registration below our camp descriptions!

Monday, Dec. 21: Holidays in Louisville

From Louisville’s beginnings, neighborhoods were made of immigrants and settlers from all over the world.  We’ll spend today taking a light and fun look at the history of our city, through the eyes of families who settled in certain areas, and how they celebrated with their families, though the years.  




Tuesday, Dec. 22: Days of Christmas Past

A lot of important things have happened around Christmas-time in the past.  We’ll take our usual fun and sideways look at everything from kings being crowned, rivers being crossed, Space being conquered and much more.



Wednesday, Dec. 23: History's Gifts

Teddy Bears and Tinker Toys were the most popular holiday gifts in the early 1900s and in some ways, not much has changed.  We’ll spend today learning about, playing with, and creating our own toys, games and gifts from all parts of history. 





Monday, Dec. 28: New Year's Celebrations (Asia and Europe)

There are some amazing New Year’s celebrations though history and today and we’ll learn about and participate in a few of the most fun and imaginative ones we’ve found.  Today’s focus will include Spain, Germany, Japan, China and more. 





Tuesday, Dec. 29: New Year's Celebrations (South America and Africa)

There are some amazing New Year’s celebrations through history and today and  we’ll learn about and participate in a few of the most fun and imaginative ones we’ve found.  Today’s focus will include Brazil, South Africa, Peru, Egypt and more.





Wednesday, Dec. 30th: Winter Break, or Summer Camp?

We’re about as far away from summer as can be, but that’s not going to stop us from pretending! We’ll treat this day like its June again, with many of our Summer Camp greatest hits.  From indoor canoes to Olympic Games, we’ll beat the winter blues with warmer fun.
