Spring break is coming, and we can hear it already: “Mom, I’m bored!” Save yourself a headache by booking your kids’ spots in spring break camps ASAP. These week-long sessions will keep your children busy during the school vacation and stimulated and engaged during their time away from the classroom.
There are many options here in Bergen County tailored to kids of different ages with varying interests. And to make things easier for parents, some offer half-day or full-day options.
Here are seven Bergen County spring break camps for 2023—just click each of the links to enroll and to get more details and pricing.
