Spring Break Camps Chicago

This post is modified from a post I wrote for our school blog. (Yes, I write blogs for other people and occasionally repurpose them!)

Chicago's Spring Break starts tonight!
Well, officially it starts on Monday, but this weekend is all part of it too!
The break goes for one week.  March 26-30 and school will resume on Monday April 2.  (And the day before is Easter, and the days before that it's Passover.  Everything is coming together beautifully.  (And of course, if you live somewhere else, your break might be different, like next week for the Easter Holiday.  Don't worry, we've got you covered!
We are traveling for part of spring break (seeing family!), and then coming home to be with family for Passover.  #familyfamilyfamily  What plans do you have for your spring break?
If you are not going away, you might try one of these spring break camps that are offered by local arts and science organizations.  I’ve selected a few below, but there’s a whole list available below.  Some of these require preregistration, and some are for the whole week, but many will go day at a time, and many of them still have capacity.  Also, because some of Chicagoland has break April 2-6, most of these organizations have Spring Break camp for two weeks.  Check in with them before signing up!
