Aspen Center for Environmental Studies offering kids day camps during holiday break

Aspen Center for Environmental Studies is offering the Winter Explorers day camp for children ages 6 to 12 at Hallam Lake in Aspen over the holiday school break.

The camp will run each weekday from Monday to Friday, and Dec. 26 to 30, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Daily themes will make each class unique and interesting for repeat explorers, according to Aspen Center for Environmental Sstudies.

Participants will discover a winter wonderland first-hand at the Hallam Lake nature preserve as they track animals, build a snow cave, make winter art creations, learn winter survival techniques, investigate how the natural world copes with this harsh season and more.

Those with a busy work week, last-minute holiday chores or families looking to ski without the kids are encouraged to register. Need-based scholarships are available.
