While some people will use spring break as a chance to get out of town, others, including Sandy Black of Martinez, will be at work. For them, Masters Week camps can provide an alternative to child care for children out of school.
“Another option versus day care is good,” said Black, a massage therapist at Serenity Day Spa and the mom of Kylee, 7, and Zayne, 4. “I didn’t know there were camps during spring break.”
Several camps are available Monday through April 12.
Artsy Me doesn’t have full-day activities planned, but the art projects Cricket Willis has planned can alleviate spring break doldrums.
“The entire week is a busy one for adults, too,” said Willis. “It’s something different.”
Artsy Me offers a 90-minute activity each day during spring break. Classes include mosaics and ceramics. The camp will meet from 10:30 a.m. to noon and costs $25.
Black said she has this year covered for child care, but next year she will keep the camp option in mind.
“I would definitely use it,” she said.
Here is a sampling of spring break activities available in the area.
