Hillsborough County offers Spring Break Camps, teen-only camp too

Hillsborough County, Florida-- While Spring Break can be very exciting for kids, it can also leave some parents who have to work in a bind as they search for alternative daytime activities. If this rings true for you, Hillsborough County has your back!

Various parks throughout the county will be offering Spring Break Camp the week of March 11 through the 15 for students ages 5 - 15. Parents can drop campers off as early as 7:30 a.m., and pick them up as late as 6 p.m., allowing most to carry out their normal work week without a worry.

Meanwhile, organizers say your children will take part in a gamut of great activities, including arts and crafts, fitness, team sports, team building activities, recreational activities- and even field trips at some locations! 

The weekly rate is $38, and camp organizers say reduced rates of $30 and $20 will be available for students who have a current reduced or free lunch letter.
