Holiday Programs

Home / Holiday Programs

Each December we are given the opportunity to reflect on the many communities who have welcomed and supported us throughout the year. Whether its our class at school, our friends from our soccer team, or our extended family, the holidays are a time to find ways to show the people in our lives how much we appreciate them. This year, our winter camps focus on spending time together, and finding unique ways to acknowledge the people we care about.
Each holiday program includes a holiday story, a homemade cookie and a cup cocoa or hot apple cider. As much as possible, we try to use natural materials in our crafts and art projects.

Handmade, and from the heart!
