For many adults, being stuck at home over the holidays sounds like a dream come true, but kids love to play outside. Children with weakened immune systems don't have such a luxury, and getting out of the house is an even greater challenge in the winter. It can leave them feeling isolated form all the fun activities that come with the season.

To help combat this feeling and get the kids and their siblings out of the house while still maintaining their health, the Children's Healing Center is hosting a series of free holiday break camps.

The Center will host six total camps from 2 to 4 p.m. throughout the holiday break, and children are invited to attend as many sessions as they’d like:

  • Harry Potter (Dec. 23): Get sorted into your Hogwarts house, play quidditch, drink butterbeer and learn how to cast spells and make potions. Ages 7+
  • Gone Huntin’ (Dec. 26): Head into the great outdoors, while staying inside, with fishing poles and hunting gear to catch bass and big ol’ deer. Ages 5+
  • Hot & Cold (Dec. 27): Kids will make their way from blizzard to heat wave through crafts and experiments. Ages 3+
  • Happy New Year! (Dec. 30): A Good. Clean. Fun.® party to ring in the new year together. Ages 3+
  • Home Improvement (Jan. 2): Learn about tools and how to use the right ones to help get the job done together. Ages 5+
  • Hearts & Hands (Jan. 3): Kids will celebrate their heartfulness by using their hands to create heart puzzles of compliments, fill bags with kind actions they can do for others and play games like Hot Hands and Hidden Heart. Ages 5+
