6 Great Veterans Day Camps for Los Angeles Kids
From parades to presidential libraries, we have a number of ways to honor Veterans Day in the Southland - on both Sunday and Monday. Taking part in a Sunday tribute to honor those who served, however, still leaves a Monday school holiday to contend with - and that's a problem for many working parents. If a vacation day camp would help, we'd like to chime in with six great options for a fun day off from school.
8640 Hayden Place
Culver City, CA 90232
Full day $97; Half day $77
JAG is holding Veterans Day camp on the Monday holiday, with gymnastics and more gymnastics to rule the day. Parents can call to register or email email@example.com .
The Realm Creative Academy
400 Pico Blvd.
Santa Monica 90405
9am-3pm (after-care available until 5pm)
$65 (or $85 with after-care)
The Realm - the camp formerly known as Outside the Box - spends Veterans Day exploring the idea of a hero and looking at the many forms heroism can take. The day includes art, games, and heroic acts.
Santa Monica Family YMCA
1332 6th Street
Santa Monica, CA 90401
Members $40; Non-members $50
Anytime the SMMUSD schools take a day off, the Y has your back with all-day coverage. Advance registration is required (forms are on the website), but the cost can't be beat.
1701 Marine Avenue
Manhattan Beach, CA 90266
Full day $50
South Bay kids (ages 4-12) with the day off from school can spend the day at Adventure Plex. A host of physical and crafty activities can take the place of the three Rs - as can climbing the (climbing) walls.
11634 Ventura Blvd
Studio City, CA 91604
School holiday camp at Studio LOL keeps kids laughing while building confidence, communication, and performance skills through improv, sketch comedy, and working to find the "funny" in their daily lives. They're bound to come home with a good joke or two as well.
5331 Derry Avenue
Agoura Hills, California 91301
Full day $61; Half day $34; Extended care available
Monarch's makes sure that everyone gets a turn on all of the gymnastics equipment during Veterans Day Camp, setting up circuits and games that keep everyone involved and bouncing as they should.
