Holiday Break Camp

 

CampFA

Pack your bags, because you’re invited to become a world explorer at CampFA's Holiday Break Camp!

*Open to FA, and non-FA students.  Sign up for a single day, or all seven.
 
No passport required! Students will experience unique, STEAM-based activities, guided games, and time for their imaginations to soar with every full- or half-day registration. Your child will create and take home crafts based on a different country explored each day. We will explore each country's culture (music, holidays, religion, languages, and food), environment, flora and fauna, and unique facts or features. We will be preparing food samples inspired by the countries.
