Winter Day Camp 2017 - "Winter at the Lodge"

January 3-17, 2017 at Aptos Village Park, 7:30AM-6PM

Children in grades K-6 will enjoy celebrating the winter season and the new year at Santa Cruz County Parks’ Winter Camp, where each day we'll "visit" a different country.  The day starts with an assembly to review the daily schedule of activities, which may include fine arts, science, organized games and sports, drama and music, crafts, and cooking.  Winter Camp includes exciting local field trips!   The staff to child ratio is 1:14 or less on site and 1:8 for field trips. Trip destinations are subject to change.

Please note - the site is closed on field trip days. Send your child with a lunch and snacks each day, wearing closed-toe shoes (i.e., sneakers).  Camp will not be held on Jan. 2 and Jan. 16, 2017.
