Winter Vacation Camps

Virtual Winter Break Camps for Kindergarten - Grade 6

Join us virtually this winter to dive deeper into a special interest or to try something new for the first time. Our Virtual Winter Break Camps are similar to our in-person FaySummer Specialty Camps and Fay After School Clubs. They offer exciting, educational, and fun activities that are taught live in real time with some offline and self-paced components, but all activities can be completed independently with minimal parental assistance.

All Winter Break Camps must have a minimum enrollment to run but will also have a limited capacity. Programs will run Monday, December 28 to either Wednesday, December 30 or Thursday, December 31.

Have you always wanted to design your own sled to fly down a snowy hill? Well now you can! In this STEM design challenge, students will use recycled and craft materials to create the ultimate sled, a small sledder, and a steep ramp (mountain, hill, etc).
