Spring Break Camps

How to survive spring break without going on vacation



Istock/kali9

Spring break is coming and if you don’t have every minute of every day packed, you just may be faced with the dreaded “I’m bored.” There are only so many visits to Darlene’s you can make, trips to Tod’s Point you can take or strolls down the Avenue you can enjoy. Here, five last minute camps that will help you keep your kids busy (and you sane).

Dance Adventure

Give your budding dancer the week of a lifetime at Dance Adventure Studio in Greenwich. The studio offers one-week camps that may be purchased by the day.
