Spring break is right around the corner. Does the idea of trying to find ways to occupy your child’s time with positive and healthy activities seem like a daunting task? Wellington has a solution.
Wellington’s Parks & Recreation Department is offering spring break camps and activities to keep kids happy and active. Athletic camps include the All-Day Sports Camp for children ages 6 to 13, the Basketball Camp for children ages 8 to 15 and Spring Break Soccer Camp for children ages 8 to 18.
Younger children ages 3 to 6 can attend TumbleKid Camp, where they will participate in gymnastics, sports, arts and crafts, music and more. The camps will be held at Village Park (11700 Pierson Road, Wellington).
At the Wellington Aquatics Complex, children can learn what it takes to become a lifeguard. The Junior Lifeguard Program, offered during spring break, teaches children ages 10 to 14 the basics of lifeguarding, surveillance and assisting at the pool. Participants can even earn volunteer hours. The American Red Cross Lifeguard Class, for ages 15 and over, will also be offered. Registration must be done in-person at the Wellington Aquatics Complex (12072 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Wellington).
