Holiday & Spring Break Camps

The City of Leawood is offering Holiday and Spring Break camps this year that feature Play-Well TEKnologies and Mad Science.  These camps are designed so that you can register separately for both camps to make it a full day experience during your break.  If you are registered for both camps, Leawood Parks & Recreation will provide a supervised lunch between the two camps.  So hurry and register for one or both camp sessions!
