Winter Break Camp Guide

This year’s winter break is a bit different than past years. Ann Arbor Public Schools is in session through Thursday, December 22. Before Christmas, students are only off on December 23. Instead of returning to school shortly after New Years, AAPS does not return until Monday, January 9. With a late return & both UM and EMU returning on January 4, many family’s may be looking for an Ann Arbor Winter Break Camp that week. 

Ann Arbor Holiday Break Camp Guide

I have split the list into camps that are operating the week before New Years (12/26-30) and those open after New Years (1/2-6). This year Ann Arbor Rec & Ed is not offering camps during winter break. They will be offering camps this April for Spring Break.

As always if you know of camps that I left off the list, please let me know.
