First Coast YMCA
It’s time to shake off the winter blues and put some spring in your step. At the Y’s Spring Break Day Camp, children have the chance to participate in themed games, stir up their imagination, get plenty of exercise, and make new friends. They will have fun just being a kid in a safe and enriching environment. Plus, you can sign up for any number of days. Activities include arts and crafts, field trips, team sports, games, science experiments . . . and so much more!
Time: 6:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
KidzfACTory Program at Limelight Theatre
Imaginative mini-musical about a group of musically talented vegetables growing in Freddy and Franny Farmer’s garden. This is not your typical garden-variety musical. The french-fried potatoes have “appeal,” leafy vegetables sing “Lettuce Entertain You,” and corn and peas beg “Please Don’t Put Us in a Can-Can!” With the help of Freddy and Franny, these lively veggies sing and dance their way into everyone’s hearts.
St. Augustine Alligator Farm
Ruckus in the Rookery:: Walk, waddle or swim to this feathery, fun-filled camp!

Campers spend the morning with the horses, learning general care, tacking and riding. Day Campers can bring their own sack lunch or purchase drinks and lunch on site. Lunch is usually followed by a shade-tree class. The remainder of the afternoon is spent enjoying a mix of crafts, games and assorted activities.
