No plans for you or your child’s Spring Break? Are you stuck in this cold, treacherous tundra? No problem! You can find “spring break” at PA. All lower school students have the opportunity to spend a week at Spring break camp for a week of endless games and fun!
While many students may be on vacation experiencing the Great Outdoors, the fun won’t have to stop if
you’re stuck at home. PA is still open during break, hosting the tenth annual lower School Spring Break Camp, coordinated by the Lower School Principal, Nancy Galgano. She notes “A lot of parents needed help with childcare since Spring Break is two weeks long and and many can’t take time off of work, so we decided to create a safe, fun space for children to come to.”
“It’s always important to have children stay active and be healthy especially over what can be a long break”, Galgano notes. PA contracts with outside agencies like Skyhawks sports camp to stay in motion for half the day; during the other half, students have the opportunity to work with PA staff on art projects, academic work, and other skills classes such as engineering or other enrichment activities. Students will also get to enjoy jumping around at Sky Zone on one of the days!
The Camp will be running from March 18-22, the first week of spring break and has become so popular there is a waitlist the majority of the time. This camp is not only a good opportunity for lower schoolers to have fun, but it also can be a great chance for upper schoolers to volunteer their time over break. Any upper schoolers are interested in volunteering at the camp, please contact Mrs. Galgano or Mrs. Laurie Wachholz, one of the Pre-K teachers for more information.
