Spring Break Fun Continues in Anchorage
ANCHORAGE - Children in the Anchorage School District are on spring break this week leaving many parents questioning how to keep those young minds busy. However, the Alaska Zoo and the Anchorage Museum have a few options for the remainder of their time off.
"Whenever there's no school, there's a camp at the Alaska Zoo", said Stephanie Hartman, Alaska Zoo Education Director. "We also offer them every day in the summer, as well, so parents always have a place they can bring their kids where they can learn about the outdoors, the environment and the animals in it".
Alaska Zoo Adventure Camp is open all week and has different learning themes for each day. The program includes lunch, take home items and a keeper or animal encounter.
And every afternoon this week the Anchorage Museum offers "Hands-On Spring Break".
"The children think they're having a fun spring break activity, the adults are satisfied because they're learning something," said Maegan Cieciel, Anchorage Museum Public Programs Coordinator.
These supervised acitivities are included in the museum entrance fee.
Most spring break acitvities run until Friday (3/15).
