3rd Lair Skate Shop
Opting for a staycation this spring break? There are still great camps and activities open. Here are seven ways to keep your kids entertained: Skate Into Spring Kids of all ages will have a seriously radical spring break to tell their friends about after a day at the 3rd Lair’s Learn-to-Skate Camp. Some of the originals in the Minnesota skate scene, the dudes over at 3rd Lair cater to all ability levels, and give lots of individual instruction in this course. Drop your little shredders off just one day- or all week- at 9 A.M., and pick them up at noon. Or, for five bucks more, they can spend the afternoon practicing those ollies, nollies, and kick-flips at 3rd Lair’s state-of-the-art indoor plaza. Animal Adventures Future biologists of the world, unite! The Minnesota Zoo is hosting day camps for all grade levels over breaks.

Opt Outside Adventure Days at Camp St. Croix are perfect for the wild child who loves to explore this spring break.

Nature School Experience the great outdoors over break at the Dodge Nature Center.
