Spring Break in the ‘Couve

For some parents, spring break is a welcome opportunity to spend some relaxed, unstructured time with their children. For other parents, it's a puzzle: how do I make sure my kids have fun and learn something and also exhaust themselves so that, by the end of the day, they don't exhaust me? 

Vancouver Parks and Recreation has got you covered. Below, you'll find brief descriptions of four day camps to be held at Firstenburg Community Center and at Marshall Community Center during spring break—April 7-11—for kids ages six to 15.
