Spring Break Fun

Spring Break Camps

Believe it or not, it’s not too late for spring break camps — these businesses allow you to register for single days or partial weeks. Availability is limited!

Jitterbug Performing Arts. Open for campers aged 3 (if potty trained) – 12 years old, with options for 9am – 1pm or 9am – 4pm camps. Jitterbug offers maximum flexibility and allows you to sign up for a single day, or all 5 days of camp. Throughout the day Jitterbug campers will sing, dance, play acting games, create props & scenery, and prepare for their spectacular performance! During the production hours at camp (1-4pm), Jitterbugs do a little “behind the scenes” work to create additional props, and scenery, learn about lighting & sound, costume design & other “techy” fun in addition to more stage time and imagination games!

Vinings School of Art. For ages 5 – 14, divided into 3 age groups. Camp is from 9am – 3:30pm with optional early drop off and/or late pick up if arranged in advance. Camps are educational, creative and fun, and each day is different.

Mable House Art Camp. For ages 6 – 12 and running from 9am – 3pm. Mixed media, drawing, painting, clay and more!

Champion Kids. For ages 2.5 and older, camp runs from 9am – 1pm. You have the option of selecting the full week, or a shorter 3 day option.

The Smyrna and Cobb County Libraries are maintaining their usual events schedule, so check out a storytime, craft hour or lego club this week.

Several strawberry farms surprised us this year with a slightly-earlier-than-usual opening dates, so add strawberry picking to that Spring Break bucket list!

Check out Smyrna’s list of parks (those with playgrounds are noted) and visit one you haven’t been to yet. We’ve visited about half of them and recapped them here.

A New Orleans girl turned Georgia peach and stay at home mom to 2 daughters. Before taking the leap into full time mothering, I worked at at an Atlanta-based advertising agency. I have lived in Smyrna for almost 10 years and am still not sure how I managed to find a job more chaotic and unpredictable than advertising.
