Vacation camps and day options for February break

It seems hard to fathom, but the next school break is only a few weeks away.

Parents who aren’t taking the week off work may be looking for options. (Even those who are may be looking for something to keep kids from climbing the walls at home.)

Southborough Recreation offers a half day camp that will help kids burn energy. They just revamped the program to cover grades K-5. (It was originally oriented for grades 3-6.)

If that doesn’t work for your family, neighboring towns offer options that cover more hours and/or grades. Since they aren’t exclusive to residents, Southborough families can take advantage.

Northborough offers the most coverage with individual-full-day camps for K-5. You can choose any or all days of the week. So, it’s perfect if you’re taking a couple days off during the break.

Framingham offers the options that cover 5-13 year olds. Kids can attend a morning soccer clinic, an afternoon sports camp, or attending both with supervised lunch between.

In addition, you can find “vacation week camp” programs at area facilities. Some options include classes at Sew Studio in Southborough, half/full day camps at Ski Ward in Shrewsbury, and half day baseball acadamy at Hit Quarter’s in Shrewsbury.

Here are details on the Recreation camp offerings. Note: the Monday of that week is President’s Day. So, each program only covers Tuesday, February 20th – Friday, February 23:
