School Break Camps
Camp runs from 9:00 am-3:30 pm, with before and after care available with prior arrangement. With the exception of especially bad weather, we spend the day outside at a fabulous local park. Our School break camps are primarily a break! A time or children to play, destress and be the creators of their world. We continue with the values and flow of our summer programs. Longer break camps, giving-thinks, winter and spring break have themes and more focused investigation.

What if my school has a break and there is no camp scheduled?
Great question! Abundant Beginnings offers Pop-Up Camps for times when you need care but camp isn't scheduled!
