While we all love the holidays—the lights, the parties, the all-around happiness in the air—when school vacation comes panic often sets in. . . .
“I’m not going away, so what on earth do I do with my kids for two weeks with no school to keep them busy?!?!”
We all love our kids and spending quality time together, but many parents work over school holiday break and don’t get time off, and others simply need time to themselves in order to maintain sanity. Luckily there’s a solution . . . winter break camps!
Kidz Central Station is chock full of winter break activities this year—camps and workshops that last anywhere from a day to a week and offer kids awesome ways to spend their time and parents the peace of mind that their kids are safe and happy while school’s out. Check out a few of our awesome offerings below in neighborhoods throughout NYC, and visit Kidz Central Station for a full listing!
