Winter Camp

About Winter Camp

Winter Camp was created to provide free activities for children and families during February school vacation. As part of the program, we sponsor ice skating on the Boston Common Frog Pond from Monday through Friday during the public school February vacation week.  In partnership with the City of Boston, on Thursday, February 23, the Boston Common will be transformed into a winter wonderland with snow slides, toboggans, a snow maze, snowshoeing lessons, and arts and crafts.
