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 Department of Recreation 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 program, which runs until 3:30 p.m. Located at Cabin John Middle School, the program is designed for children age 3 to 13, runs Dec. 26-28 and allows children to select from sports like soccer, basketball and kickball, or from non-competitive games and activities.
Cost: Full day—$113 for Montgomery County residents, $128 for non-residents; half day—$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 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Dec. 26-31, 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.
