February Break Camps for NJ Kids

February break camps

Just when you thought everyone was back on track from winter break-- bam! February break sneaks upon us. While some New Jersey schools are closed the Monday of President’s Day only, others have four day weekends or even that whole week off. If you’re in need of child care during the break, or just something to occupy the kiddos, don’t fear. Our list of February break camps is here. February breakers can spend their time off exploring nature, playing their favorite sports, learning science and even tubing down mountains. Check out these drop-off camps offered for various portions of February break.
