February School Vacation Camp

Winter Fun Outdoors for Ages 8-13!

FEBRUARY 18-22, 2019

Are you ready for a winter adventure?  February School Vacation Camp is all about fun, friendship, outdoor adventure, and learning about the environment. With 2,300 acres of forests, ponds, and farmland, the W. Alton Jones Campus offers a big backyard that’s perfect for adventure, exploration, learning, and fun! We have a 75-acre lake, extensive hiking trails, and lots of streams and ponds. Our ability to blend education with camp fun makes learning seem like a vacation. Our fun-filled, activities-based programs are designed with the camper in mind.  Our dining hall is the ideal place to gather for a warm, home-cooked meal. Meals are family style, kid-friendly, and nutritionally balanced. Hunger is rarely an issue at Alton Jones.

What will you do during February School Vacation Camp?

Walk through the forest tracking wildlife.

Investigate and play games on one of our icy ponds.

Nestle up to a cozy fire to enjoy s’mores and share good times.

Tap trees for maple syrup and taste the finished product.

Explore the forest on snowshoes.

Ride a sled down one of our hilly fields.

Other activities include winter games, maple sugar taste test, snowball target practice, ice harvesting, gingerbread house making, winter arts and crafts, broom ball on ice, snow sculpture contest, winter ecology, and many more!* Overnight campers will have the opportunity to spend the evening at Alton Jones participating in programs such as night hike, stargazing, campfire, and group games.

*Please note activities requiring snow and ice are weather dependent.
