The holiday break can be hectic, and sometimes a getaway for the kids can be good for everyone.

The Audubon Community Nature Center is inviting kids to come and play and learn for a day during the school vacation.

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, December 29, kids from Pre-K through Grade 7 can experience the fun of summer day camp with a winter twist.

Time will be spent enjoying the outdoors, learning about nature, playing, and meeting or spending time with friends. There will also be inside camp games and songs.

Children need to bring a non-refrigerated lunch, a snack, a water bottle, and a complete change of clothes. Be sure to dress for being outside, with an extra pair of gloves, boots, and snowpants if possible.

Cost for the day is $30 or $25 for Friends of the Nature Center. Additional siblings receive a $5 discount.

Enrollment is limited. Paid reservations are required by Tuesday, December 27. To register, call (716) 569-2345 during business hours or click through “Holiday Camp” at
