In doing research on summer camp, I have come across a few opportunities for spring break programs that may line up with your childcare needs. Here are three camps that offer two different one-week sessions.

  1. Zoo Camp – At the Oakland Zoo, kids learn about animals, do arts and crafts, puppets and music. The dates are April 2-6 and April 9-13 and children must be in K-5.

The price is $60/day for non-members; $55 for members.
