Looking for a place to send the kids over Winter Break? Sonoma Ecology Center camp

Sonoma Ecology Center winter break camp is fun and educational.|

Winter break can leave kids stir crazy until Christmas, but this outdoor winter camp might solve that dilemma.

The Sonoma Ecology Center is hosting its annual Winterbreak Camp from Dec.19 to Dec. 20. The center’s staff will lead the kids in two days of fun, learning and outdoor activities at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park.

All attendees will have the opportunity to participate in nature hikes and activities that excite their imagination and teach them about the different creatures within the park.

Over the course of the two-day camp, kids will take trips to the waterfall, scenic overlooks on the Vista Trail and creek exploration along the campground trails. Each day will end with seasonal treats and a “closing circle,” where the campers get to debrief the day and share their experiences.

The program is sponsored by the Community Foundation Sonoma County Expanded Learning Advancing Educational Equity grant. It will be run out of the Ecology Center’s Visitors Center.

The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 19 and Tuesday, Dec. 20. The camp is open to kids ages 8 to 12. Registrations costs $40 and can be done on the Ecology Center’s website at sugarloafpark.org.
