    Spring Break Camp

    Spring Break Camp 2022

    Registration opens Monday, March 14th at 9 am!



    Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter is excited to offer 4 days of fun, outdoor camp during the Park City Spring Break. Spring Break Camp is open to youth currently enrolled in 1st through 5th graders. Kindergarteners may not attend—no exceptions. Camp begins each morning at 9 am and ends at 4 pm (drop off is allowed at 8:45 am. No late pick up available). Two snacks will be provided (one in the morning and one in the afternoon), but campers should bring their own sack lunch (that does not require heating) and a reusable water bottle each day. More information, including daily agendas, packing list, and specific agendas will be sent out about a week before camp begins.

    To learn more about what we are doing to protect the health of participants and staff, check out our updated policies and procedures document.
