Local Spring Break Camps


With the long month of January behind us, we moms are mentally preparing for the busyness of this next season. We’ve already signed our kids up for spring sports and school extracurriculars, and before we know it, we will be dusting off our chairs and cheering voices, ready to become the family chauffeur. This is your reminder that in between all of the spring activities and end of school, is the week of spring break. Maybe you’re a planner and have already booked a big getaway or local staycation. If so, enjoy! But if your schedules are looking like you’ll be staying closer to home this year and you’d like a more structured week for your kids, here are some local spring break camps and activities to look into.

  1. iCode Waco

If your child loves technology, this might be the time to sign them up for a camp at iCode Waco. Camps are available for kids from ages 5-15 and there are several different class options including, Artist’s Studio: 2D 3D Digital Design, LEGO EV3 Battle of the Bots (including a Tournament of Champions), and YouTube Creator Production Basics.

  1. Skate Waco

Do you need to find something physically active for your kids this week? Skate Waco is holding Skate Camps for kids ages 5-12, Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 1pm. Kids ages 9 and older may stay for the afternoon skating sessions until 5pm for no extra charge. Campers will be introduced to 20 different skating skills and several skate games, and classes will be available in beginner, intermediate, and advanced skill levels.

  1. YMCA

The Waco YMCA is holding a spring break camp. The details are not posted yet so be sure to keep a lookout here for updated information and be checking their website for details, too!

  1. Mayborn Museum

Maybe you don’t need a full week of entertainment for your children, but you’d like to have some more indoor activity options than just the same books and puzzles your home provides. The Mayborn Museum is currently hosting a new Cardboard Craze exhibit and is always a family friendly activity.

  1. Texas Ranger Museum

The Ranger Museum is hosting a Spring Break Roundup on Saturday, March 11 which is included in your regular museum admission. The roundup activities will take place between 10am-1pm and is open to people of all ages.

Hopefully the weather in Waco will be warm and sunny, so those of you planning a spring break stay-cation can take advantage of the many outdoor activities Waco has to offer. In addition to the opportunities listed above don’t forget to take a stroll along the Brazos, visit the Cameron Park Zoo, and check out the newly updated Woodway Arboretum. The whole family may enjoy a round of Top Golf, a tour the Dr. Pepper Museum or an afternoon at the grounds at Magnolia. Whether this spring break keeps you near or takes you far, I hope you make the best memories with your family!
