Aside from summer break, winter break may be the most highly anticipated event for kids during the school year, but for many parents it is also one of the most stressful. Finding care for children can be challenging.
In Montgomery County, the recreation department is offering a few different programs.
Coach Doug Club Holiday
Parents can select from the 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. half-day program or the full day, which runs until 3:30 p.m. Located at Cabin John Middle School, the program is designed for children ages 3 to 13 and runs from Dec. 26 through 28 and allows children to select from sports like soccer, basketball and kickball, or non-competitive games and activities.
Cost: Full day is $113 for Montgomery County residents, $128 for non-residents; half day is $60/$75. Extended day care is also available.
Karate Clinics Winter Break
If your 6-to-12-year-old children enjoy martial arts, the Tang Soo Do-style Korean jujitsu program might be a good choice. This morning-only program runs Dec. 26 through 31, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Bauer Drive Community Center. Students will be grouped by belt level and work on kata, one-step sparring, falling, take downs, throwing and more.
Cost: $53 for Montgomery County residents, $68 for non-residents.
