Keeping your kids occupied: winter break camps

GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT) – Christmas may be over, but winter break is certainly not.

During the week of December 28th, many kids are off from school, and many parents are looking for programs to keep their children entertained.

Bricks4Kidz in Greenville is hosting a winter break camp Monday through Wednesday, from 8am-5pm. The cost is $60 for one day, $100 for two days, and $130 for three days.

“We’re really excited about our winter break camp,” said Bobbie-Jo Grinder, Owner, Bricks4Kidz in Greenville. “Kids love to come in, they love to play with Legos, and the nice part about it is we give them an educational element without them realizing it.”

The camp strives to incorporate educational activities and stem programming, while also allowing kids to unwind and have a fun break from school. It’s not too late to register your child for the camp – just call 252-320-3973.

Another winter break camp is taking place in Wilson, and it’s free to the public. Boys and girls, ages 9-14, can come to a basketball camp hosted by the Wilson Police Department Monday through Wednesday from 9am-12pm.

“Every year the Wilson Police Department hosts a camp – a basketball camp – for kids while they’re on Christmas break,” said Captain Eric Smith, Wilson Police Department. “It’s just a good opportunity for kids and police officers to get together in a coaching setting.”

The goal is to provide children with an activity that builds a positive relationship with law enforcement. The camp is located in the gymnasium at Vick Elementary School. If you would like your child to participate, you can bring them to the gymnasium at 9am.

Other camps include one hosted by Jacksonville Parks and Rec, from 7:30am to 6pm. For information on how to register, call 910-938-5312.

In Greenville, a Winter Survivor Camp will take place at River Park North. Children will learn about fire building, shelter, and campfire cooking. It’s on Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am-4pm. The cost is $27, or $18 for Greenville residents. To register, call 252-329-4567.
