What does Spring Break look like for your family?
March in Arkansas is always a mixed bag. It could be snowing, cold, or dreary, or it could be sunny and in the seventies. Many families take the opportunity to travel or just spend some quality time at home. For others, the third week in March is just another fairly normal work week, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be a normal week for your kids.
If your family does not have vacation plans over Spring Break, make sure your kids are busy doing something and having fun. We have daily or a full week kids programming options, but don’t wait too long to sign up – space is limited! Lunch is provided in camp registration, and Chef Justus will be cooking up some delicious food for campers. Each day of camp has a different theme with different activities planned for the children. Your kids will have fun while getting great care from our experienced counselors!

Arts & Crafts
Campers will get to decorate their own pots for planting flowers, participate in a collective mosaic mural activity, and an activity centered on the power of positive words and encouragement on our minds and bodies. The Community Creative Center will be here in the afternoon leading a pottery activity for the kids (campers will not get to take home their potter creations until they have been fired and cooled at the CCC – I will send out emails when they are ready for pick up at Mount Sequoyah).
