Winter Camp

About Winter Camp

In 2016, we launched our Winter Camp program to provide needed enrichment activities for children and families during school vacation. As part of the program, we sponsor free ice skating on the Boston Common Frog Pond from Monday through Friday during the public school February vacation week.

With a Little Help
from Our Friends

We work with some of our key partners including the Boston Red Sox, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, and the Appalachian Mountain Club to enhance the skating experience by providing exciting activities throughout the week.

Academic Opportunities

In addition to the activities at the Boston Common, we partner with a number of nonprofit organizations to support academic tutoring during the vacation week and provide fun and enriching field trip opportunities, including cooking classes at the Boston Public Market, special tours of the Museum of Science, and performances at the Wheelock Family Theatre.
