Exploration Place will have a full week of spring break “Edventures” for kids in Kindergarten through 8th grade. What’s even better is that you can get a special discount if you register your child for any 3 or all 5 sessions.
The Spring Break Slam Dunk Edventures will feature a different theme each day. Each session is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Before- and after-care is available for an additional fee. You can send a lunch with your child or order a box lunch through the program.
Each day’s Edventure is $35 ($30 for EP members); a package of any 3 Edventures costs only $95 ($80 for members); a package of all 5 Edventures costs only $140 ($125 for members).
