If you can’t spare the vacation time to stay home with them or you don’t fancy the idea of being stuck indoors playing the entertainer during the whole break, vacation camps are a great option. Kids can play sports, games, create art projects, and learn new skills that will keep their minds ready to go when they head back to school in January.

Get out, get some fresh air, work off the turkey, and enjoy the season with family, with many activities at low or no cost. Let's spend time, not money!
Before the family indulges in a calorie-laden feast and lets the tryptophan of a delicious turkey put the grown-up and kids into a post-meal coma, earn the indulgence with one of many Philadelphia-area Turkey Trots.

Here's a roundup of the Turkey Trot options in the area. Find one near you, and be sure to check the calendar for other Thanksgiving-themed events!
