PA Day Fun Programs for January 20




Kids love days off from school like PA Days. Working parents? Not so much. While there are many wonderful mini-camps to choose from during extended school breaks, it's harder to find coverage for one-off school break days that pop up throughout the academic year. We've rounded up full-day, drop-off programs for this coming PA Day, where kids can enjoy activities like science, theatre, robotics, chess and more.

Where you can book programs this coming January 20...
